Deanna Rose as a Family of 4!

Holden's first week home from the hospital was a gorgeous one.  Sunny and temps near 80 nearly every day!  Craig was on vacation, my parents were in town, Brantley was home with us, and I was feeling great, so we couldn't pass up the opportunity for an afternoon at Deanna Rose Farmstead.  Even with a 4-day old.  Our first visit of the season and first as a family of four!

This was the perfect time to try out our new stroller!  Brantley loved the ability to hop on and off so easily!  And this type of stroller is seriously perfect for a place like this!

Highlights always include feeding the goats.  Brantley loved it at first.  And then he took a sip of the goat's milk.  (Sick)  And I happened to snap a photo at that exact moment.  And then the pushy goats jumped on him.  And frightened him.  And that was the end of that.  Not to mention, the poop they got on his shirt.  Darn goats.  We maybe used one of five bottles that Daddy bought. 


Moving on to the pond.  And ducks.

Holden was amazing.  He slept the entire time.  I even tried to wake him to eat--in a swing under the warm spring-time sun.  (Don't worry, he was covered by a blanket to protect him from sunburn.)  But he wasn't having it.

It was a perfect afternoon.  And even better because it included a trip to Orange Leaf on the way home.


  1. So fun and what great weather!! We do have good planning on when we seem to have those babies (aka not in the dead of winter) bc it's so nice to not be holed up inside!! You look great and hope Holden is still doing well!!

  2. One of my favorite places in the world. So sad we won't even get to go at all in 2014!

  3. Oh my goodness, you are SUPER WOMAN!! What a great outing, it looks like so much fun! And I bet it felt so good to get outta the house!
    I had Mia in the dead of winter so I can't even imagine going out with a newborn.
