As a little girl, I grew up out in the country. We didn't live on a farm- if anything, it was more like a hobby farm. We had dogs and cats, a bunny, a lizard, a gerbil, and borrowed sheep in the summers, but not all at the same time! It was a great way to be raised and I'm excited for Brennan to get to spend time in the country as a little guy, too!
My parents' desire to make their place into a little hobby farm must be growing each year, though, because last summer they got their first chickens! They have five hens for eggs, and one rooster, to crow. Now this spring, they got a brand new batch of baby chicks to raise- 26 of them! We took the opportunity to introduce Brennan to the fantastic world of baby animals and got these cute pictures!
