oh hey, friday! | our week according to iPhone...again

it's a lot to keep up on...this blogging thing. i can't be the only one who feels this way.

sometimes i feel like taking a two week vacation from it...but then i don't. my boss would surely fire me.

but then who would i tell what i packed in easter baskets this year or that we caught another mouse this morning. that makes four for the week, people. four.

farm living?

what i'm saying is...i need the blog to brag about all my mouse-pets. (said no one ever.)


1 | grab this here snazzy valentine button and link back to september farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.

M Y  F I V E  |  O U R  W E E K (according to my iphone - round 2)

1 | crappy weather
i swear she had a great time.
the weather was suuuuuper crap-tastic on tuesday and i knew we had to get out of the house. so my best gals and i packed up and headed to boise so kaye could work out some energy at a play gym while sawyer and i...sat there and watched.

one of the many things i absolutely adore about kaye is her independence. she's not afraid to talk to the other kids or say, "come on, let's play!" 

even though i wouldn't mind climbing around the gym with her for a few minutes, i don't have to be that parent. it sure makes for a nice outing.

after working up an appetite we headed to one of our favorite spots for lunch...and gelato. if you're ever in the boise area, head to boise fry company for lunch. it never disappoints.

2 | when you grow up on a farm...

when you grow up on a farm sometimes this puts quite a distance between you and normal childhood going to the park, for example. so we improvise by letting her play on heavy machinery. she'll probably start taking tractor-driving lessons next year.

3 | princess farmer
i'm not sure if you saw this picture on instagram...but it's worth another mention. the caption was...

because i wouldn't let her wear heels in the alfalfa field. #assholeparent #princessproblems

4 | more gorgeous we walk

living where we live we have a bit of a wind problem. it can be so obnoxious. but on days that it's sunny and NOT windy...we go outside. this has also been our new strategy now that kaye is done-zo napping. she's been dragging hard around 2:30 pm each day, but if i can keep her busy and moving outside she gets a second wind and can make it until bedtime at 7 pm.
5 | sawyer bear

my sawyer. she is five months old as of tuesday. i'll be writing a little monthly update post next week, but i can't help but give her a little mention. she's been holding herself so well this week that i know in maybe a week or two she'll be sitting up on her own. she can do it now, but her balance isn't super great. i never thought i'd be someone who said this, but i wish i could keep her a baby. she's just so damn sweet.

okay...linky-link time!


  1. The pictures of your girls always warm my heart! Plus Kaye just cracks me up!

  2. I love seeing pictures of your girls on the farm! What a fun childhood they're having!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I just recently found your blog and I love it! I grew up on a farm in the Treasure Valley! So I can totally relate to you and the memories I have as a little kid. It makes me miss home.

  4. hahaha the princess farmer for the win! She kills me! Happy weekend!

  5. Princess farmer is amazing! Your property looks awesome. Couldn't imagine all of that land. Have a great weekend :) Winks and Eyerolls

  6. Where I am, in interior Florida, from May through November, I would *kill* for some wind. We get heavy, hot, humid, still air. Not hardly a breath of breeze. So it just sits stagnant and oppressive. It's *so* gross. (The six months of not-summer are awesome though and make it worth it. But I still don't understand how the seabreeze can reach us from December through April, yet not at all in the summer.)

  7. Those hashtags were definitely some of my faves this week! Sometimes being an #assholeparent is fun! haha

  8. that picture was definitely one of the best instagrams I've seen all week!

  9. I grew up in the country too and have fond childhood memories playing in tractors and coming inside covered in hay & dirt! Your girls are definitely lucky to grow up surrounded by farmland!

  10. Can I be Kaye when I grow up? She is so sassy wearing her princess dresses on the tractors! Love her! And Sawyer is still such a little muffin. Her little cheeks have filled out and she is so precious and squishable. Love her too. Glad you guys are getting some good weather and can be out and about!:)

  11. I'm pretty sure I'm right there with you on the blogging thing! :) It's like I want to do it and then I don't want to do it all at the same time! But it is such a great way of remembering the beauty in the ordinary day to day! Enjoy your weekend!!

  12. It's a hard life being a princess farmer! Her facial expressions are hilarious!

  13. The princess farmer having a mini fit was probably hands down my favorite picture I saw on Instagram all week. Perfect.

  14. Tractor rides are better than the playground :) You little one is so cute in that bouncer! Don't you love this fun time? There is nothing better! Hope you have a fun weekend :)

  15. Your babies are so expressive!!!!! I love their faces. Tell Kaye not to worry. I'm definitely making those faces when I can't wear what I want either!!

  16. What do you mean I can't wear my heels in the field? NOT FAIR MOM!
