We escaped to the 100 acre wood over the weekend. After a crazy week and a few too many cold days in a row, it was delightful to get away from the world and enjoy some warm weather. It was incredibly windy so Bambi didn't cooperate with our culinary plans for the year, but we had a great time just the same.

Boys and dogs headed out to go fish.

We girls went along, too, but we didn't look quite as cute.

There were tractor driving lessons.

Bubba found an enormous piece of petrified wood.

We visited with the neighbors.

Doesn't this guy look a little like a bear?

We watched the sun set over the pond.

We did a lot of walking in the woods. We don't have any animals but wildlife on the property. Occasionally the neighbors have been known to break through the fence and hang out on the place until they are found or missed. Since the property is heavily wooded, it is not the safest place for a cow. We recently had a small herd living on the property. Their owner finally came and got them. Well, most of them.

Do I feel a song coming on? (Private joke for dead cow lovers.)

Hope your fist weekend of the New Year was as fun and adventurous as ours was.
