You should head right up to that door and make an offer...it looks like a little slice of heaven!

Wonderful pictures. Looks like everyone had a great time. I'm going home to my roots in a few weeks. I can hardly wait:)


So adorable and all-American!! I LOVE the stories and pictures!

PS We had those tupperware popsicle things too - I think orange juice was my favorite!


How wonderful that you are able to share such a wholesome and totally American experience with your children. That part of Illinois is beautiful (I grew up just outside Chicago, but loved to get away from the city and into the farmland). Don't envy you that drive from Colorado though - you are most definately Wonder Woman!



Oh my....how simply wonderful...just how it should be...lovely area...lovely family...lovely memories...lovely post!!!

These are wonderful pictures. Your parents have a lovely farm. Family is the best!


i love this post Jeanne...it looks and sounds like everyone had a wonderful time...your children have the sweetest little faces:)


what wonderful memories. your parents have quite the pad. thanks for all the photos.. you are a really great photographer. still missing you!!


It looks like such a great time! Have you ever had s'more's with reeses peanut butter cups instead of hershy's chocolate? Pretty yummy... kind of rich though... But if you put peanut butter on it, I will eat it!

Next time I'm coming too! :)

looks like a perfect day.... so glad you enjoyed yourselves, you sure can tell the kids did, don't you love that? it brings a smile to my face!

I grew up on a ranch too...my brother (2 years younger) and I would play for hours. Boy those were the days...wish my kiddos could do the same. My parents sold the ranch about 15 years ago and sometimes I drive by and choke up a bit. I miss it so much, your children are so blessed, they will always remember their wonderful childhood with fondness. Many blessings today!

Oh Jeanne the kids look like they were having a great time, can I go next time!! I'll peddle in the duck, I could do with toning my thigh's big time. My kids would love that tree house & I have a daughter that lives on popsicles even in the winter. Glad it was a good trip.




Thanks for sharing more photos! Nothing makes me happier in the whole world than being out in the country...you can just shee the happienss shining through your kids. You and I would get in trouble together, becuase I have a serious problem of falling in love with houses that are out in the middle of nowhere. I grab flyers, strat daydreaming, imagine what my garden would look like, what I'd be canning, what pie I'd be baking....that is a beautiful home. I'm sure your parents wouldn't mind at all if you bought it! :)


Thank you for the wonderful treat of seeing life on the farm! Your kids are so sweet! The popsicles looked wonderful!!!
I love summer time memories!!!


something perfectly wonderful about images from a summer's day out on a farm, especially with a red barn, so magical!
you captured such great shots!
sounds like a priceless vacation
can i come for a sleepover in your own new barnhouse and silo?
ps--the photo in an earlier post of your madelyn with the parasol--gorgeous!!!


Wonderful images, and it looks like such a sweet place to visit...I can remember going to my grandma's house and having so much fun with my cousins, and they didn't have a tree house, smores, or live in the country, but they had a pool and we lived in it!! Thanks for sharing..maybe the kids can go next year for a week without you! :) XO
