We like to have school over the summer. My boys love it. They do. I promise. However, we like a LOT of fun in our summer too, so....
Our learning for the day went HANDS ON!!!!
A chic flew the coop with her three boys!
We went to see some of these!
What fun it was to ride and play with our friends Jacob and Daniel! They have really cool toys.
May I introduce farmer Jorge. He is actually a gaucho. He and Suzanne took us for a hay ride with popsicles!!!! I mean who could beat that?
This is Jorge's wife, Suzanne. She is a doll!
Benjamin wanted to check out their amazing crops that put our vegetable garden, or should I say patch to shame!
They got to hold some of these. Luke did not want to actually hold it (he knows what they do) but enjoyed petting it!
Then we went for a walk on their VERY OWN boardwalk. Can you imagine? It was truly amazing.
We saw a snapping turtle lay her eggs.
If you look closely, you can see the ALLIGATOR. May I repeat, ALLIGATOR. We were not far off the swampy water. Like definitely in jaws reach. Yep, in jaws reach. But I had to get a picture. That made Luke mad. He was afraid that the Mama Gator would appear. She didn't.
This just makes my heart melt. Have you seen this little man sit so still and happy for a picture? Like it just doesn't happen.
And my heart keeps right on melting,
While my heart was melting, so was Luke's popsicle.
Thank you Jorge, Suzanne, Daniel, and Jacob for a WONDERFUL memory and a fabulous time. Here is proof we played hard: Got Dirt?
