Truman Farm

Today a bunch of us got together for a "children's social" and Truman University's Farm. Tab had a blast and Benton tolerated being toted around. We started out visiting the greenhouse. Tab could have cared less about the plants. He just wanted me to turn the water on so he could spray me with the hose.
Then we went out and they were checking out the cows.Tab thought that this was particularly neat, but wasn't quite sure what was going on.Then they had them plant some pumpkin seeds. Tab continuously poked around in the dirt with his name stick. I'm not even sure if there are any seeds left in the dirt. He also ate a fair amount of dirt and then got upset about it when it didn't taste like chocolate.I tried to get the boys to pose for a cute outdoor picture, but they aren't really into the whole cooperating thing.
What is a visit to a farm without a hayride? This was as close as we could get to a picture with all three of us in it. Sigh.
Then they got to go pet some horses. This was Tab's favorite part. Pardon the picture, my camera got turned to some funky setting. Benton liked the grass but wasn't so sure about the horse.We came upon a grassy area covered with dandylions and stopped for a minute. Tab LOVES to pick dandylions.Benton, well, he likes to eat them aparently.I tried to get a picture of how funny his hair is. It was just blowing in the breeze. His hair is so fine and sticks straight up to begin with. It was hilarious. This is the C'mon mom, I'm so done with having my picture taken look.We had a lot of fun and it was so nice to be outside!

I am so glad you had a good time. Tab looks like he had a blast. It was good to talk to you today. Give your boys kisses and hugs from us.
