Fabulous Friday

After work today my husband and father decided it was time to get all the tractors running right since it is supposed to rain all weekend. This included a new battery for one, oil, and other types of tune up things. So the tractors where line up for inspection of what they would need (including my Dad’s old Ford tractor)…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most just need to be run a little and driven, the Farmall C needed the battery, and a couple of the others need an oil change.

The dogs spent their afternoon exploring and running in the fields behind our house.

The chickens spent time exploring more of the yard and eating some treats we put out for them.

I think it is so funny when "the girls" have their tails up in the air...

It’s been such a busy day this post will be short, but it is big on happy blessed weekend wishes for you all!

ATV’s and outdoors

I wanted to share something tonight I feel strongly about. We as humans benefit from being outdoors. It helps with mood, energy, spirit, and health. Kids especially need to be outdoors and play. It helps them with mood, energy, creativity, imagination play, social skills building, self-esteem building, and so much more.

I thought I would share with you one of my husbands and my favorite outdoor activities (as we have many). On our one year anniversary (many moons ago now it feels like) we decided to do an outdoors trip which included riding ATV’s through the mountains at an ATV park in Pennsylvania. We had a great time and always enjoy riding ATV’s.

This is me on an ATV in PA.

There were all sorts of trails to ride on from easy to super hard and we enjoyed most of the light to moderate trails (and a couple of the harder ones) as we felt since we don’t get to ride that often on trails like this it would be safest. It had been raining all day and we ended up covered from head to toe in mud (you may not be able to see it here, but we were). Even in the rain we had a blast and built memories that will last a long time.

This is my husband on the ATV.

This is another thing I love about the outdoors, the memories you can make. I hope you have outdoor plans for this weekend if your weather is nice. Even if it rains the puddles can be fun to jump in especially if you have little one… or even a pup or two 😉

Do you or you families have favorite outdoor activities? If so please share them with me 🙂
