When I was a little girl, my parents used to take me to The Deanna Rose Farmstead. Back then it was just a small petting zoo, filled with numerous farm animals, birds of prey and nature walks. I even remember the feel of the baby goats nibbling the ten cent feed out of my chubby little hands. For a city girl who loved animals, it felt like heaven to me.
Fast forward to last Friday… Nora had done wonderful with the cows back on the farm last weekend and we had a 70 degree day, so I decided to load her up and take her for her first visit to the petting zoo. My mom and Jared decided to tag along and I’m so glad they did. I won’t lie, I got a little giddy when we pulled into the parking lot – I was finally taking MY baby girl to Deanna Rose. I have often thought over the years how much fun it would be to take my children there someday, and now I was finally doing just that. Here are a few shots we were able to get…
After our trip to Deanna Rose, Eric was able to get off work a little bit early to leave town for Milford again. Eric had his annual alumni tournament back home, so that was our main reason for going back for a second week in a row. Of course, another reason was for Nora to spend some more time with two very special people who miss her quite a bit 🙂
Sheila inherited numerous toys from Eric’s cousin, Lindsey. Nora LOVES sitting up like a big girl in this one.
Got sun?!? Hope she enjoyed it today…we are supposed to have rain the entire rest of the week. Mother Nature, you are, indeed, a tease! Btw, I wore my new Gap shorts today – I stand by my word… Best. Shorts. Ever.

The picture of you and Nora (and the Deere) is adorable! Yesterday was hard for you; I hope your heart is better today!
Your too sweet, Nicole. My heart did feel better today! Thanks for your kind thoughts. I apreciate them more than you know!
Loved this post!!! The petting zoo with grammie and uncie. Sweet! Times in Milford with Eric's family….it looks to me like she has two sets of very adoring grand parents. So blessed. The game, 4 wheeling, barn finds and many dreams for the future. I love hearing and seeing your life together. Saying goodbye to those you have grown to love and care for in many ways. Your life has touched many….and been touched by many. love to you all.
