  "Bring the kids, we're going to a deer farm."

  Jake gives Rissie the high-five.

Then a big hug.

Jake:  "What's a deer farm?"

Let's all load into the back of the pickup...

Be careful everyone.  
And shhhh...  don't scare the deer.
Up over the mountain and through the gate.  
Wow!  Heaven on earth!!  And so quiet.

Rholand is going to go find one of the new babies for us to hold.  Quiet now...

Suddenly, an audience.  
Someone's concerned for her baby...

Watching from the back of the pickup truck
 as the deer come down to eat.

Funny, PopPop!

What a beautiful adventure!

  12. what a fun adventure! I can see why you enjoyed it so much! your grands seemed to enjoy it equally as well!


  13. Bobbi, in the rush and craziness of my week, I've missed your blog posts a couple of times, and missed your big announcement--I am excited for you!!! And while I know it may be daunting for you at the same time, I have a feeling it's going to be a wonderful and rewarding chapter in your lives!! ~Congrats!!~

    I also think a trip to the deer farm is a perfect place to clear your thoughts and just enjoy yourself!!

  14. Very precious pictures of those delightful smiles. I think the deer are beautiful but there are blogger friends up north who have 'nuisance' deer. They ruin flowers, gardens, and carry ticks with bad diseases. Two dogs are on medications now because of it and one lost her dog to the disease. But they are still beautiful creatures to me.

  15. What a neat place! Looks like so much fun!

    We found a fawn in our yard last weekend. Of course I had my iPhone with camera and didn't think to take a picture. It was late at night and I was so worried it was injured. But it was more scared than anything. It was so small! Then we heard Mom in the woods and went on about our walk. When we got back it was gone.


A Note From Gracie
