Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

Time flies, as they say...
whether you're having fun, or not.

So we've made it our mission to have as much fun as possible this summer.

Movie marathons, hometown fireworks (wearing sweatshirts and cozied up under blankets too, I might add!), splashing in the pool, Cub Scout camp, sleeping in, chasing fireflies, goat races, and mowing, mowing, mowing...although I'm pretty sure hubby doesn't count that as "fun"!

The weather has been crazy, from evenings cold enough to have a bonfire & toast s'mores, to endless rain, then blazing heat.

So many things make up summertime on the farm...here are few of my favorite snapshots of what's happening in our little corner of the world, Midwest, USA.

look at those eyes...
summer also brought bee swarms...2 in 10 days!
sweet baby llamas...
To quote Jack Lemmon from, The Great Race,
"We're under water!"
No, there is not normally a pond in the middle of the cornfield!
the annual balloon festival...great fun!
well-worn cowgirl boots!

And so it goes...
hope summer is happy in your corner of the world!


  1. Sounds like you are getting a bit of everything weather wise and having a good time.

  2. Would you believe I heard "Polar Vortex" for next week?! In summer? Will keep you posted!

  3. Those baby llamas are adorable!

  4. Sounds like a perfect summer to me! I thought the same thing watching fireworks... almost had to get a blanket. I love looking at your pictures around the farm... the baby llamas are so cute!

    Have a delightful week~

  5. Wow, that was quite a swarm (and what a gorgeous photo too)! It's fun to read about all of your bee-keeping adventures because we're still learning about how to take care of our own bees.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
