Isaac and Walker have been busy shopping for hunting clothes. These growing boys realized that they have out grown all of their hunting gear. Since hunting season is here, they need to be sure they have all the camo they need.
Walker is at an awkward stage where most of the youth sizes are too small for him, but they skip the adult small sizes that would normally fit him. We have had to get a little creative to make sure he is hidden in the woods while still staying warm enough.
Walmart has been their go to store for hunting apparel. It fits the budget, but doesn't always afford the protection from the elements that we are looking for.

We invest in good base layers.
It isn't very often that I have a Saturday at home with no plans or deadlines. This weekend, Daniel and the boys were off on a "boys trip" and I was home alone...which I always enjoy.
The cooler fall temperatures have finally arrived and I had to drag out a jacket to head to the barn for morning chores. It was such a cool, clear perfectly peaceful fall morning. I finished chores and then grabbed my camera.
It amused me that the calves aren't much different than my teens. Any time they can congregate together away from the watchful eyes of adults, they do.
Over the years, we have spent a lot of quality time together in the truck. We have logged miles and miles and miles travelling to and from cattle shows.
This weekend, Daniel and I left the boys at home (the advantages of having a teenage driver) and made an impromptu trip to Virginia.
No, it wasn't a romantic getaway...
We had cows to deliver.
As much as I like the destinations...I absolutely love the trip.
Some of our best memories are made in the cab of the truck.
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
