family farm fun...

 We gathered Sunday evening 
to wish Brogan  
Happy 4th Birthday
at his other grandpa's house.


I took advantage of the situation 
to enjoy the setting
and the little cowboys



 Birthday Boy Brogan
and
Baby Brother Briscoe


try saying that fast 10 times 


simple  rustic beauty found



pick-up truck heaven




before indoor plumbing


 the other grandpa


this little man would stop 
and say cheeeeeeeeeeeeeese...when he saw my camera



Can you resist this face?
I can't.


I know you are reading a lot of family posts right now
and
there are more coming.
It 's what I've been shooting  and doing lately.
but 
I do have an announcement to make tomorrow.
You'll have to come on back.

Rebecca said...

These photos (and those faces) are very, VERY precious! You're getting really good at family pictures!

The editing (assuming you did some) really brought out a vintage quality to them...

I love your family posts. Those pictures of your Grandsons on the horses are too cute. I would enlarge and frame those if I were you. Really enjoyed your post:)

Great photos and looks like the kids had fun! I'll have to show my father these photos of the tractors. He restores the old grey Fergies and has 6 of them and also has a Farmall like the one you photographed. I love the old bath tub and the rusty pump and also the outhouse, is it an old toilet? In Australia we fondly call them 'dunnies'....LOL Great shots, I thoroughly enjoyed reading and looking. I'm getting my new Canon 600D DSLR next week, I'm so excited. I have the tripod ready and waiting.

These photographs are stunning. My grandfather owns a farmall just like that, it sits alongside this other dozers and tractors in the pole barn. Thank you for sharing...I love family moments like these.

Such cowboy cuties ! Wish my boys were that age again ! What are those gorgeous trees ( shrubs?) with the large white blooms? Almost look like mop head hydrangea blooms . And love the tractor and the trucks !
