This weekend we packed our overnight bags and headed a few hours west of the city to visit our good friends in Drayton, Ontario. The boys helped feed the horses at Mapletons and we managed to get everyone out for a hike despite the cold weather. Big E took most of these pictures. I don't know why but I never tire of farm animal pictures. We have a lot of them and most of them are from the same farm. I just really dig the textures and the light in the barns, the shapes of the animals and the quirky expressions on their faces. I especially love the adorable baby animals and I just want to eat them all up (insert smiley face here). Every time I come back from one of these trips I feel ready to move to the country and I immediately start searching for homes on MLS. Then reality seeps in and I remember it's good to have jobs and family nearby, a good school and a great community. We will just have to do visits like these more often. Hope you don't mind Cathy and Martin! We love you.
