I've forgotten what it's like to be around "young'uns"... they wore me out in just two hours...
We played a game of croquet, had a tea party dressed in vintage aprons, made pictures with plain white computer paper and colored pencils, played part of a wild game of checkers...
weighed all my eggs on my vintage egg scale... along with every dog ball we have.
And last but not least, the five year old informed me that he was "a picky eater". I, of course, informed him that Mr. Red Gate Farm is a picky eater as well... this led to a game of "yes and no"... asking if he liked different foods... not much of a surprise but Mr. Red Gate Farm IS a pickier eater than a five year old!
We did have a great time... the evening ended with a couple of foot races around the barn... which came to an abrupt halt when our yellow lab decided she'd like to enter the race as well.
Yesterday evening reminded me how easy happiness can come to kids.
As adults, we sometimes forget how to do this. I know I do.
Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face
Sunflowers, all here at Red Gate Farm, spreading the joy... They certainly make me smile and put on a happy face! Hope they make you smile too.
And thanks to my two "single digit" friends for reminding me...
