Idaho - Gone HOG Wild!

It always surprises me that I grew up on a farm.
We had chickens, pigs, goats, a ram, and even a horse.

Now, the thought of being a pet owner of ANY kind almost repulses me.
We tried a beta fish and after a month I was ready to flush him myself.
Plus, aside from the stink, hair, and maintenance of pets, the truth is I like my conveniences (like Target and the grocery store) to be nearby.

However, that said, I have no problem reverting back to the country life. Or at least watching my kids enjoy it.

On our Idaho reunion, we got to visit Brooke's amazing farm and garden (not pictured).

The kids were in HOG HEAVEN!

They were also in HOG mud, and HOG drool, and probably even HOG poo!
It was really fun to watch, but I'll admit that I was editing these photos while eating and the thought of them rolling around in that mud made me gag for a moment.


Please meet the Pig Whisperer, Kylee.

Spencer wanted some pictures with the piggies, but what these pictures don't show is him shrieking like a girl. He was so scared.

When the pigs weren't looking, he quickly plopped down for a picture.
