A Day on the Farm

Aurora about to go outside for an adventure on the farm.

Okay, these pictures are going to take a little explanation. For our wedding 7 1/2 years ago we had a friend paint this bride and groom cutout for some fun pics at our reception. My dad being raised by goodly parents who lived during the depression, saved it in his scrap wood pile. When he needed a door for the chicken coop --voila-- a door for the chicken coop. I think I can hear "The Circle of Life" music in the background. I wonder what symbolism or meaning this holds for our marriage.

When Momma A heard this story when we had dinner with my family before Aurora was born she found it quite funny and wanted pics. Here you go Momma A! It really is quite impressive that the only thing my dad bought to make the whole coop and the run was a couple of hinges.

I had planned to post our picture from the reception but realized that Jared and I never got one, I guess because we were already the bride and groom at the time.

The chickens

Aurora did really well on the adventure.
Most babies don't like the wind but she just curled up on Daddy and was content.
