What happens when you take the city boy to the country???

Really, do I need to say anymore?

A few weeks ago we went out to Talmage Utah to help my sister and Brother-in-law brand their cows. Jayden was so not a fan! He cried from the second we got out of the car until we left pretty much. It was a very exhausting day for him. He kept seeing his daddy over there with those noisy cows and thought something was going to happen to him. So I was pretty much NO help. But we had a fun time.
I tried to plugging Jayden's ears, hoping that would help, but no such luck!
Anne put the seats in her van down so that the kids would have an area to play. I did spend most of my time in there as you can see!
The kids having fun playing in the van!
My mom had my brothers kids, and they were so good.
Steven had Chris give the cows one of the few shots they needed. It was the first time that Chris has ever branded cows, and he did great. He always loves having new experiences and learning new things! He was a little nervous at first, but on the way home he even told me he would probably do it again! Good work honey!!
Look at that concentration!
Anne was kind enough to help out when Jennilyn needed me. Needless to say, I have no clue how anyone could raise kids alone! It would be quite the challenge! Jayden kept saying that he wanted to go over by his dad. But whenever we would take him over there he was scared to death to be in the middle of all the noise! (The cows don't like being separated from their calves. Can you really blame them?)
The mama cows
Jennilyn was quite the trooper. She was pretty good the whole time.
Camilla getting ready to go help with the calves!Thanks everyone for helping with my kids. You are all the best!

Anne said...

First off....THANKS FOR THE HELP! I am sure that Jayden wasn't the only one worn out by the end of the day! Chris was a real lifesaver....I am not that helpful myself. As far as the kids go....what goes around comes around!!!!! :O)
