Grandpa's Farm

We travelled to Michigan to see Rebekah's family over Memorial Day. Ethan was very excited to see family and the animals. All the way up there (5 hours) Ethan begged to listen to his "Farmer" CD. This is full of songs about farm animals. The first song is called "Down On Grandpa's Farm". We had to play this one over, and over, and over. . . (you get the point). Ethan and Elysia LOVED the animals. There was a new litter of kittens that Ethan begged to see about 100 times a day. Thankfully Rebekah's sister Katie loved to take Ethan out to see them. Elysia was amazed by the dogs. Every time she woke up, whether from a nap or nighttime, the first thing out of her mouth was "Daw-Daw-Daw" meaning take me to see the dog or I will scream =) She knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it, which is NOW of course. The dogs were not so enthusiastic about Elysia. Who can blame them? I would not want to be attacked by a squealing wild child, who liked to chew my tail! It is always nice to see family and farm. We wish that we lived closer. We miss our family very much, and I never realized how much I loved the farm until I moved away.
