Farmer Jonah

Jonah and I headed to my parents ranch this past weekend for a visit. All Jonah could talk about on the way there was riding on Papa's tractor! On Saturday morning Jonah helped Charlie feed the chickens, the ducks and the cows. He even remembered which cows were his! Then he ate a big breakfast prepared by Nana complete with pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits with gravy (I enjoyed it too. My mom makes the best breakfasts!) Afterwards, Papa brought out the tractor and took Jonah on a ride and even let him drive around the hay fields. He was so excited!

Jonah was all boy this weekend and managed to also find a dirt pile to play in. I didn't bring any sandbox toys for him to play with so my mom found a spoon and an old can that she filled up with water and Jonah kicked it old school style and made mud pies. He was covered in dirt from head to toe by the time he was finished but he had a great time!

For Sunday lunch I told my mom I wanted good Southern comfort food so she whipped up chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn on the cob, and fried okra! It was so yummy! I may live in the city now and eat sushi as often as I can but I still enjoy going back to my small town Southern girl roots every once in a while!

Here comes trouble!

Jonah likes to drive the tractor "fast"

Jonah and Papa

Jonah loved watching his Elmo DVD in Nana's car! I'm in love with the headphones! I definitely think I need to invest in both with my next car purchase! I was actually able to listen to adult music while we drove!

Boys will be boys! Jonah loved playing in the dirt!

Look at that face!!! Time for a bath!
