Less Words Wednesday: Down On The Farm + Instagram

Every week there are so many photos taken in our home, or outside the home; you get what I'm saying. It's hard to weed through thousands of snapshots and cut it down to the 5-8 that end up in each post. Just last week we went to the local Underwood Pick Your Own Farms and had a fun day out, thanks to Allegra. While the tractor slide and wooden vehicle play sets were a big hit, it was the petting corral that truly won Sabrina (10) over.
There are some minor attractions, mostly geared towards the younger (K-5) kids, including a hay bale ride, cow barrel train, and pedal tractor racing. I was surprised to see Jay squeeze into one of the 'larger' cow barrels, but not surprised to hear how he felt every little 'bump' through the mud around the fields- ouch!
Lately it seems like everybody is grabbing a camera; Jay has become addicted to Instagram, where he can adjust filters to his heart's content. While I was trying to snap a good shot of Sabrina and the baby goats he captured the slightly haunting goat portrait above. When we got home Truffles proved her strawberry addiction was not an isolated incident; rolling and rubbing all over the berry baskets for near a half hour.
(Left)Around the house Truffles(cat) and Nora(dog) have been getting a little more acquainted. Nora likes to pretend she doesn't notice Truffles lurking below the ottoman, then she springs up and growls when Truffles turns to walk away.
