Over Christmas we headed to Missouri to spend it with my side of the family. My parents live out in the country and it makes my heart so happy to see my kids out in the fields and barns exploring. I always thought I would want to live in town until I was old. Both Travis and I grew up in the country. So living in town as an adult has been such a fun experience. But, now that our family is growing older and larger we find ourselves with the desire to have the kids growing up in the country. Funny how things change you as a parent 🙂
Some of my favorite memories as a little girl was spending time at my grandparent’s dairy farm for a week over the summers. I love that my kids will also have sweet memories petting the horses, exploring the barns, running through the fields and trying to catch the barn cats. On our way home from Christmas we asked the kids what their favorite part of Christmas was…. it was a unanimous vote for time with their family and playing outside at Grandma and Grandpa’s. The BEST kind of memories!
I’m excited for this upcoming year and to hopefully see some of these memories turn into a reality! What are you excited for in 2017?!
