A Farm Experience

There’s something about the idea of living on a farm that gives me the warm and fuzzies. But the truth is... I could never. I have no clue how to take care of farm animals. Cold hard truth...

We followed the Red Trail back for about a 4 minute walk. To the right it starts to open up and with a slight climb down you enter the motherland! I was immediately transported to a West Virginia mountain creek in my mind. Kennedy loved splashing in the water and Levi loved catching the tadpoles. The creek itself has tons to explore. You can chose to go up stream, or if you go down stream it o...
