Mother's Day at the Farm


Mother's Day at the Farm

Todd Swank's Diary Entry for May 13, 2012


On Tuesday night, we had the pleasure of going out for supper with my first cousin, Alison, whom I haven't seen in about 30 years!  We had a great time!!  I can't wait until the year 2042 so we can do it again!


Country Roads.  Take Us To Grandma Haack's House!  
It's Mother's Day!


When we arrived, Grandma was busy re-arranging her gas tanks.  Just another light day of work at the farm...


Sunny is always excited to go to the farm.  So many smells and so many new places to pee!


The boys are always excited to go to the farm also.  They get to do all sorts of things they don't get to do at home.  Mom and dad are excited when they do this because it's the only time we can ever get them to hug one another.


It was a beautiful day for a ride on the country roads.  Even if I did have to follow Avery and eat his dust for most of the day.


But riding the 4 Wheelers wasn't quite enough excitement for the weekend.  Since Miss Sheri has always told the boys that she learned how to drive at a very young age, they pestered her to let them have the same opportunity while we were there.  So we headed to an abandoned parking lot and held on for dear life.


Although they didn't go very far, I was actually quite impressed with how they did for their first time driving.  Now they're done with that for awhile.  


On Saturday night, we headed to the Doon Steak House for dinner.  I think both moms had a pretty nice time.  They sure like their meat.
