Mixing It Up

Tonight we went to a beginning farmer mixer. It is always fun to be around other people who are doing the same thing you are. The hosting farm was amazing. They specialize in sorghum which can be used as a type of natural sweetener. There were also goats, chickens, pigs, cats and a dog.

"Doo doo doo doo!!!!!"
Ayden was so excited to see all of the animals from his favorite books come to life.  He was pointing in every direction making all the animal noises he could.  It was adorable! He also discovered the moon once it got dark and kept showing it to us. There was a pot luck, a showing of the documentary The Greenhorns and a bluegrass trio which Ayden loved.

Our original plan was to camp out but the forecast doesn't look good for the morning, so we decided to sit this one out. We really enjoyed ourselves and Ayden met a little 10 month old friend named Polly. She was the first person I've ever met who shares our cats name.

Seeing all of the animals got me excited for our future on the farm as we build our homestead. It will be a lot of work but the payback will be ten fold. Such an amazing way to live and an even better way to raise our family. Nothing like visiting folks who are a few steps ahead of you to become inspired and motivated. Super fun stuff!
