Today, Little Bug and I drove over to the farm to spend the day celebrating S's (from now on known as "hermano") birthday. Hermano and Little Bug spent the first 7 months of their lives together with Carlos, Mireya and the girls. They are forever brothers!!! The pictures are not in order but I will try to give you the story of the day.
We arrived much earlier than expected- for some reason, I though the party started at 2 pm and we arrived at 3. But the party was not supposed to start until until 4:30. It all turned out well, as the extra time allowed Little Bug and Hermano to play with each other and for us to get a TRACTOR ride. Little Bug was very uncertain about the tractor ride (OK, Momma was too), but there was room for Momma on the tractor and we all went around the main area of the farm. It was really cool and by the end, Little Bug thought it was cool. Hermano was not to keen on having us on the tractor with him, especially when it first appeared that he would have to get off the tractor so Little Bug and I could ride. But all was great in the end.
Later in the day, we got to help feed the baby cows (yes, calves, I know- but they are baby cows to Little Bug). Actually, they are "baby vacas" in Little Bug speak.
Hermano loving his swing. Both boys can now swing in the big swing, so long as they don't go high and someone pushes them. They still do not have the leg action down- but that will come later. Little Bug loving his swing time. He was swinging first and then Hermano came over, so that is why Hermano is in the "not safe for toddlers" swing.
Little Bug having dinner- potato chips, tomatoes and cheese. Yes, that is correct, he choose not to have the delicious Black Angus beef hamburgers that come from the vacas on the farm. Momma loved the hamburgers- they are so good. If you want to know how to order some beef from Hermano's farm- let me know in a comment and I will get the info to you.
We took a hay ride at the end of the day- we got to see some Milk cows along the ride. Apparently, they are different than Beef cows.
Thank you Carlos, Mireya, Suzy, Karla and Andrea for opening your home, your lives and your heart to these boys and for being the bridge in our families.
Much love and many hugs to you,
