Four Days At The Farm

Equals fun, fun, fun especially if you are a 4-year-old boy. We spent a few days recently at Mrs. Shife's mom and dad's house, and I do believe they might have been the greatest days of Kyle's life. Here's a list of some of his accomplishments:
  • Went fishing for the first time and caught four fish
  • Dug up some worms to catch those fish
  • Caught a frog
  • Caught some bugs to feed his frog
  • Played in the creek or murky murk water as he called it, 
  • Had a constant companion named Kirby, who is my in-law's black lab
  • Gave Kirby a bath in the pond
  • Fed the cows
  • Went four-wheeling
  • Rode in a water truck
  • Rode in a fork lift
  • Drove his electric red truck until the wheels fell off literally
  • Went on a hike in the mountains or the steep forest as he called it
  • Ate lots and lots of cherries
  • Created a new sandwich, which is melted cheese and strawberry jam, and ate a few of them. We will either call it the Kyle special or the cheesy damn jam sandwich. 
  • Worked on evening out his tan lines by swimming naked 
And Hayden had a good time too. 
Hope you had a nice 4th of July.
Thanks for stopping by. 

Kyle and Grandpa posing with the first fish Kyle ever caught. Not too shabby for his first time and a pretty awesome picture if I must say so myself. 

I had to include a picture of Kirby because he was Kyle's best buddy the whole time we were up there.

Little Miss Hayden sitting on Grandpa's lap and telling me where all the beer is located. 

Kyle taking his sister for a ride. Also one of the few times where they were both fully clothed.

A bucket full of Hayden. She enjoyed soaking in a five-gallon bucket when she was not in the pool.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. This looks pretty much like what my grandsons do at our house. And they don't wear clothes all the time either.
    I wonder who had more fun? The kids or the grandfolks?

  2. That truck looks cool. Must be exciting for him to go fishing for the first time. I remember my sons went fishing for the first time, my younger son came home and could not stop talking about how many fishes he had caught and how he did it.

  3. Nothing better than a boy on the farm. Did you tell me once that they lived in Wa. State? Or am I once again confused?

  4. Oh the carefree days of summer, just right for the little ones to enjoy themselves. Love the pictures, especially the one of Miss Hayden in the 5 gallon container.

  5. Those boys know how to have a good time, especially standing on a truck in your underoos. That's some baller stuff right there.

  6. wow that sounds like a excellent adventure for kyle. i've said it before and i'll say it again, i want you to be my dad in my next life.

  7. Great post!

    Happy times.

  8. Looks like you had a great holiday. So relieved Mrs. Epsteen didn't make an appearance.
