As Marcus grows up I want him to have that same appreciation. I want Marcus to know the difference between a tractor and a combine. It'd be great if he knew 'cows' refers only to the female bovine beauties. I want Marcus to understand there is a difference between field corn and sweet corn. We will likely never live on a farm, but I want Marcus to have as many farm experiences as possible.
Insert amazing trip to Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead in Kansas with all of Marcus' cousins!
As we approached the entry of the farm I felt like a little kid at Christmas. I knew I was going to love the place as much (if not more) than the kids.
|Upper left: Something that makes noise? Yep, that's a winner.|
Lower left: A goat I can possibly lie on? Yep, we'll try that, too.
Right: A big piece of equipment that has potential to carry me from point A to point B? Sign me up!
|Marcus looks like he wants to launch himself out of that stroller, good thing we had him strapped in.|

Getting smiles from them all at the same time is like pulling teeth.
