weekend at the farm and a sneak peak

i'm not doing a very good job with catchy titles lately.  oh well...

we had a great weekend at the farm!  this is my families farm and it honestly hasn't changed much in my 30 years of life.  it's all the same.  the same scenery, the same smells, the same barns.  this is one place that i know will be exactly the same as the last time i left it.  i like that kind of familiarity.

i can't tell you how much it means to me to take C here.  to watch her run around and discover new things.

to see the look on her face when a herd of cattle approach the truck, and to hear her say "baby cows!  baby cows!" over and over again with such excitement.

and to see my grandmother laugh and enjoy her company is wonderful as well.  all of the cattle where back in the woods grazing and growing this visit.  i really wanted C to be able to see some, so shaun, C and i loaded up in the truck.  then my mom and ma-maw decided they would join us.  as we were driving back, my grandmother said she hadn't been back in the woods since my poppa died.  10 years.  i'm so thankful that our little C is bringing more life back into this place.

 we also discovered that our C is a little bit country mixed with a little bit diva.

 she loved it up there!  she kept saying "caroline's tractor".  oh really?  not sure where we will park it baby girl...

the weekend we great.  just what we needed.  the hubs and i got to sleep in on saturday morning when gran jan scooped C out of bed around 7.  and we all got to take a nap!  that's big for the cook's.  but, it was what we needed.

sunday brought us back to reality.  a good reality though because monday morning, installation for the cabinets and counter tops started!!  honestly, i'm not sure shaun slept.

so, as the title says - here's a little sneak peak...

i can't even tell you how amazing everything looks!

but, as you can see in the background, we still have A LOT of work to do.  the sink is in place, but no water.  so, a bigger reveal later.  just wanted to keep you with me!  =)

have a good tuesday friends!
