Hold on to your chairs ... you're gonna be jealous.

Today (or tomorrow...depending on the day we get free tickets, cause I surely ain't spendin' real money on this) we, as a family, will be gracing the local farm show. Uh-huh, thass right.

The kids will be delighted and overjoyed to see the tractors, because it's not like we have a shed full of them. They will clamour to the seats and Gabe will act as though he's never seen such a lovely instrument of machinery in his whole 2.5 years.

The Hubs will stop at each booth and grab information, and in asking one simple question ... 'So tell me, how DOES that work?' we will have been informed on the latest and greatest in milking machines, parlours, breeding programs, new barns, machinery, insurance, farm gear and stalls. Fas.Cin.At.Ing.

Then we'll get to the buffet and then you'll see big mama delighted and overjoyed.

I really only attend for the food. A lot of my life is dictated by food. And you wonder why I struggle with my weight.

This is my domain...I will stop at each station loading my plate, and with one simple question 'Are there free re-fills?', we will experience the joyous undertaking that involves grazing a buffet from one side to the other. I will leave there, having been educated on the fine dining that involves both exercise and good food. The buffet really is the best of both worlds.

So wish me luck today as I suffer through the Q&A period, but keep my eyes on the prize.

Hello! I found your blog through a comment you left on my friend Elizabeth's blog.

My husband and I are also dairy farmers! We have mostly Jerseys and a few Holsteins. We're only milking about 35 right now but we have a total of 8 cows dues to calve this month! I look forward to returning to your blog! I've linked my blog to this post but my husband also has a blog. You can check it out at . :)

This is one of those posts that, if I were writing it, would be prefaced with the old commercial line, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful..."

I've BEEN to farm shows. I feel your pain! ;)

Anyhoo--it's nice to meet you! I'm a Christian mom of six kids and I run an online baby boutique from home. You may enjoy my baby boutique blog since you have little ones.
