{embrace} the camera - may 12

 Have you checked out my rosette necklace giveaway yet?  If not, you should go enter HERE!

While we were in NE for Easter, Lincoln was totally in love with the farm.  Tyler and I both grew up on farms and Tyler's parents still live on the farm.  Lincoln had all this space to roam around and explore.  He was amazed at how big all the tractors and trucks were.  It was so fun to watch him discover.  While growing up I always hated the fact that we lived out in the country and all my friends lived "in town" (a village of 300, does that count as a town?) :) I promised myself I would NOT marry a farmer and by marrying Tyler I very well could've married a farmer but he chose a different path.  It wouldn't have been horrible like I always thought growing up, but I'm very thankful I live 2 minutes from a Target :)  Looking back though, I am so grateful for the opportunity to grow up on the farm and I'm thankful that Lincoln gets to experience a little of it too.  

Driving the tractor already!

"look at all these fun toys, mommy!"

Isn't this old Coca-Cola vending machine sweet?!

Tyler's Grandpa found some pretty great ways to store supplies!  Love it!

....and old bread pans made into drawers!

Good thing we're headed back again to visit this weekend!  Yes we are crazy to drive 16 hours both ways twice within 3 weeks.  My little brother is graduating from high school.  Figured we should probably make an appearance :)  {Trey, your party better be worth it!} j/k Love ya Trey!
