With all this nice weather we’ve been having,  some of us girls along with our friend, Sarah,  decided to go on a walk down the lane in the field behind us πŸ™‚   All of us "children" call this "Daddy’s Lane", and the lane in the field across the road from us is "Mommy’s Lane".  Why?  Because Daddy uses the back lane the most…for deer hunting, for manure spreading, and other farm things .   Mommy’s lane is the one she goes on to take walks…the stones are smaller and more pleasant to walk on!  But since "Daddy’s Lane" is so easily accessible (we don’t have to cross the busy road in front of us like we do when we want to go on "Mommy’s Lane" ), we chose his lane to walk on.


  When I first came out, they said that they were "washing the mud off of their shoes"….maybe they were, but it looked like they were also playing in the water! 



        Here we are, starting off πŸ™‚   It looks like Anna and Sarah were having a race!  And Isaiah is so cute riding piggy back!   Since Isaiah had so nicely "washed" his boots, and Bekah wanted to carry him piggyback without getting her dress muddy, we let him slip off his boots πŸ˜€ 





Do you know what a farmgirl jungle gym looks like?!  It looks like…or is…an irrigator πŸ™‚



And yes, farm boys can use them, too!



 Once we got close to the to the end of the lane, everyone gathered rocks to throw into the water…



      At the end of the lane, there are two irrigation ponds.  Here they are climbing up the small hill to the smaller  pond.  The ponds are anywhere from 8 to 16+ feet deep, depending on the season.  We usually  are content  to stay at the TOP of the hills and just look…





            …or throw rocks in.  You just can’t visit the ponds without throwing a rock!  Last week Leah and I took a walk together, and even we threw rocks.  It’s just what you do!  This is the picture we used for yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday πŸ™‚


           The picture above is of the smaller pond…the one of Noah, below, is the larger pond.  We once brought some annoying ducks and our annoying goose RePete  back here one winter…the ducks dissappeared and the goose returned.  Unfortuntately.   I mean about the goose returning.


 More rock throwing .  In between the two ponds is a land bridge…that’s what we’re standing on.  It is the optimal place for throwing rocks since you have two ponds at your disposal at once!


Here on the larger pond, you can see the all the rocks that didn’t break through the ice πŸ™‚



After depleting our pile of rocks, we headed back to the house.




          Isaiah gave Bekah a kiss for carrying him around everywhere. Bekah carried him all the way to the pond, and then back again!  I had to have him kiss her several times to get a good picture of it…he is such a ham that he didn’t mind a bit! 



I asked Bekah if she’d stop and pose with me…she was very kind and did so



Looking back at the house



I couldn’t believe how the sun made a dirty puddle of water look so sparkly and pretty!


  Now here is my favorite picture set of pictures!!!!

Remember how we left Isaiah’s boots behind?  Noah was a little concerned when he came back and found them here…I think he was calling to Bekah to tell her where Isaiah’s boots are πŸ™‚


When Bekah and Isaiah get to the boots, she helps Isaiah put them on…





          Isn’t that adorable?  When I finally got to this spot, Charissa was writing something in the dirt…this is how farmgirls do school by the way…who needs paper?! 


 She asked me, "Jessica, how do you spell ‘America’?"

    Hello! Your sister was very kind to help her little brother as well as carry him all over the place! You take such beautiful pictures! I saw your baby goat a few posts down! It is absoulutely wonderful. What other animals do you have? I remember when our family had some baby goats, we kept them for a year or so but we were not putting them in a big enough pen and they didnt have enough to eat so we gave them to a friend of ours. They are very happy and we have visited them several times!

    I hope you have had a wonderful week!
