Remlinger Farms!

My mom treated Russ, Rowan, and I to a day at Remlinger Farms in Carnation. I haven’t been since I was a kid, and it was such a fun day! Rowan had an absolute blast and was overwhelmed by excitement. I think he’ll have even more fun when he can go on more rides in the coming years.

Our cheesy family photo op:DSC_0231 DSC_0232I was so excited to have Rowan take his first pony ride, but he only wanted to pet little “Spice”, and was adamant about NOT getting on. Maybe next time. :)

DSC_0234This place is a boy’s dream! He got to “drive” tractors, sit in a real bus, and old firetruck. Absolute heaven for this kiddo.DSC_0235 DSC_0236 DSC_0239 DSC_0243 DSC_0246DSC_0245Checking out the donkey, chickens, and even got to feed a goat!DSC_0241 DSC_0242    DSC_0292Riding on the train! I think this was definitely Rowan’s favorite part of the day. He kept doing sign language for train and making choo choo noises while smiling ear to ear. He was also waving to anything and everything in sight. It was so cute!DSC_0251 DSC_0253 DSC_0255 Next he got to ‘drive’ an antique car. I wanted to go too, until I read this stupid sign…. Maybe it would have thrown me into labor, and I should have gone! :)DSC_0261   DSC_0264  DSC_0266

On the firetruck. He didn’t want to get off, and kept telling the other kids, “My turn!” when they tried to touch the wheel.  DSC_0268 DSC_0272  “ MOO” he says!DSC_0297

Hanging out with his favorite person, “Mor-Mor!” DSC_0298 DSC_0301

My mom unpacked one of my favorite dolls from my childhood recently, and gave it to Rowan to “practice” being a big brother. He is really sweet with the “beebees” and tries to pat her back, wrap her up in a blanket, and put her “nigh nighs.” The other day he pointed up at my stash of headbands and insisted I put one on the doll. Then he sat down with her and held her hand. Can’t wait to see what he’s like with sister!

Little Shopper

Russ took Rowan to PCC with him this weekend and let him push around a little cart for the first time. He loved it and of course he tried to put everything in the cart. He looks so serious in this picture!
