After that I was home for a few days before I headed to the 2014 BlogHer Conference in San Jose, CA. This was a last minute trip that I managed to squeeze in, but I’m so glad that I made it work! I’ll have a whole other post about this trip soon, but I got to meet some great ladies that love to blog about family, food, and life on a farm just like I do!
In the picture above is Katie Pinke from The Pinke Post in North Dakota, me, Malorie from Mal the Beef Gal in California, Debbie Lyons Blythe from Kids, Cows, and Grass in Kansas, Leah Beyer from Beyer Beware in Indiana, and Colleen Cecil from Growin a Home in California. Kristin Reese from Local Farm Mom in Ohio was also with us most of the trip, but she had to head home early for her state fair.
|Great things are happening here!|
While I was gone to the BlogHer conference, our county fair was going on at home. Kevin took the boys to some of the 4-H cattle shows and Hudson even got to “show” a bucket calf at the end of the fair with the help of one of his friends from church. Kevin said he did great! Only four more years until he gets to do it on his own!
We were all home for a few days playing catch up and spending some time together. Axten loves to clomp around in daddy’s boots! He’s such a funny little guy!
Ax also loves his kitty Chloe. She’s the only barn kitty/cat that we can actually pick up. And she tolerates Axten’s excessive hugs too!
I shared this picture on Facebook the other day. It shows how farm kids like to have fun on a fresh pile of white rock! Too bad daddy had to spread it out!
That leads us to the end of the month. I brought the boys out to my parent’s house for a few days so we could go to my county fair. The last two nights have been spent riding fair rides and playing lots of games, oh yeah, and eating funnel cakes! We are going to spend the day on the lake today and then head home tomorrow. Vacation Bible School starts tomorrow evening and then we have just two weeks from this Monday until Pre-School starts! Crazy! Hope you all had a great July!
