Stephen has been very sweetly eager to tell me he loves me lately. There is little else that can top his sweet, high-pitched, two-year-old boy voice saying, "I love you, Mommy." Over and over again. I was trying to capture it today on the computer and this short video is what I came out with. I love these kids!

This week the kids and I went on a field trip to Campbell's Classic Dairy in Cleburne, TX. It was the perfect place for us. We met the farmer, Regina, and her cows, chickens, dogs, and cat. She told us all about her operations there and let the kids run wild, feeding the calves dandelions. I bought a gallon of raw milk and a carton of eggs and two pounds of beef. The verdict? The milk is delicious! And it's still fresh on day 5. The eggs are the brightest, deepest, orange-yolked eggs I have ever seen. And I've raised chickens before! These eggs are SO GOOD! The beef is 90/10, which didn't make for the best burger this afternoon, but still was delicious. I will definitely continue buying from Regina in the future and have signed up for regular weekly deliveries of milk and eggs through a local co-op. (Write me if you're interested in that information.)
Nothing beats a little country-side for these city slickers. It was so refreshing (and perfect weather!) to be in the great outdoors. Green pasture. Pregnant and nursing cows. Two-week-old calves. And my kids running around like maniacs, while the farmer didn't mind a bit! Great day and a great excursion for our young family.
