Rural Ramble…

(post which I nearly titled “way too many photos of my kids on farms”, just a little warning!)

Last week-end was the annual Rural Ramble in the Ottawa Valley — my mom and I took the kids to three farms near Eganville and they had a blast. By the last farm, Elizabeth was especially warmed up – running around everywhere calling Alexandre to join her and see things. That bounce in her step and smile on her face was priceless!

Here’s a 5 day old lamb (or baby sheep as I called it on flickr last week!)

And 3 day old pigs!

Elizabeth, memère + turkey


Alexandre especially loved the chickens!!

At the second farm, they went horseback riding. I never ever thought they’d get on the horses — they refused to touch them after our wagon ride – but they wanted on and they did great 🙂 And it made me very happy – I love horseback riding (even though i don’t ride now) but it’s part of very happy childhood memories for me!)

One week later and they’re still talking about “Lady” and “Duke” like they’re friends!

The bounce I mentioned above!

seeing so many chickens/roosters made me really wish we had a coop! not that we would because we’re not always always home AND if we did – it wouldn’t have any roosters!!
