Had a great visit with my second cousins Betty and John and their families. They both have farms near Camrose AL. Betty and her husband Al are raising sheep and some of the most adorable children you’ll ever see. He has his diesel repair business right there on the farm so he doesn't waste any time commuting. Betty is absolutely amazing with her love and care of children (she also makes the most delicious bread). We took lots of family photos that I’ll share when I get home, but I’ll continue here with adult/baby pictures. They had lots of sheep.
And how about this one of man and son. Too cute. Joey had been holding a lamb and when he got tired Daddy was carrying it back to the pen.
Oh yeah, Tuesday night (6/17) we brought them a pretty wild storm too. We’re thinking about hiring out as rainmakers lol.
John and Dorothy have a farm about 3 km from Betty and Al. They live in a home built in 1913 I think. I love all the old design and architecture. Their barn used to house barn dances and the piano would be put up in the hay loft.
They farm pigs, chickens, all organic, and they have a huge turkey named “Easter”. They said Easter weighed about 50 pounds!
They had a few black faced lambs too.
Isn't their farm just the greatest play yard?
Dorothy & John have created a lot of interesting garden spots around the property that I just fell in love with. I felt like we were on the same adventure as the story book “The City Mouse visits the Country Mouse” lol I’m sure that’s not the title, but it was something like that. We again felt so welcomed and like we’ve known each other for a long time. We’re both very glad that we made the time to visit our Canadian family.
