Favorite Photo Challenge

This is was a very hard choice to pick just one of my favorite photos!!! This picture is pretty close to the top!
It was taken when my son was 19 months old and his first trip to the farm. I had not been up to the farm in a VERY long time due to my aunt and uncle getting a divorce and he was my uncle by marriage. Anyways, my cousin got married on the farm and my mom and dad spoke with my uncle after a VERY long time, and one of the 1st questions from him was "How is Karrie?" You see, I was the only niece that loved being on the farm and would spend at least a week up there every summer. I was always up his butt learning and listening. After all this time I thought he might have, well kinda forgotten about me...but nope! So my parents said my aunt and uncle have been divorced for so long now (Trying to keep the peace with her sister) that why don't I call...and my uncle wanted me to call him. It took me over 2 weeks to get up the nerve to call but I finally did. So the rest is history! We have been up there every yr at least once if not twice to visit. It is always like going home for me. My youngest loves it just about as much as I do and this picture shows that. We were only there a few hours and he wanted to go in the barnyard and see the cows, so I took him in and I had to jump behind every cow he just zoomed past since he had no fear of them...at all!!!! As my uncle says "Just like his mother!"
At 19 months you think they would be intimidated by these big creatures...not my son! He really tried to make friends with her but she was not interested in the hay (which that doesn't look just hay since he took it off the barnyard ground...hahaha) she was more interested in why was this human so small? This picture always brings back good memories for me not only being back on the farm and getting reunited with my uncle again but to see my son running, playing, feeding the calves, now milking the cows and helping out with so many different chores the older he gets. This is the life I wish I could have but I am happy enough that we can go and spend some time up there and my kids get a taste of what a hard working life is all about. I am also glad my kids know that milk doesn't come from the grocery store ;)



Oh and this picture was taken with my old little Olympus. I really did love that camera!
