Cook's Dairy Farm

Mom, Dad, Drew, and I drove up to Ortonville, MI one day last week for an afternoon at Cook's Dairy Farm.
We got ice cream right away - first things first! Mom and Dad got Cowpuchino, and I got Cow Pie. Both were so good!
We looked at the cows while we ate.
Drew shared with everyone.
Drew enjoyed looking at the cows but was a little nervous.
Once we got over to the baby calves, he wasn't nervous anymore. He wanted to pet them.

Now brave, he also wanted to pet the pigs, but we didn't think that was the best idea.
We came back around to look at the big cows again.

We had a great time at the farm, and Drew has been talking about cows ever since!

Our Fourth of July

We celebrated Fourth of July with my parents again this year. July 4th is my mom's birthday, so we were especially glad that she decided to spend her birthday with us this year! Jim was busy at work all day, but the rest of us had fun shopping and relaxing, and we had bruschetta chicken, mashed potatoes, and fresh green beans for Mom's birthday dinner - yum! After dinner we took Drew out to the yard for a few pictures with his little flag.

We went out to Rackham Golf Course to see the fireworks that evening. We were happy to spend time waiting for dark with the Johns, Weirichs, Scallys, and several other people from our church. Drew enjoyed a snow cone.
The little guys played with the football for a while.
Drew and Nathan blew bubbles for a long time.
We had a great Fourth of July!
