I have always imagined myself one day having a beautiful barn, which of course I would hang a huge, giant wreath on at Christmas. We all have those little unique things we imagine for our lives, and thinking about them brings a lot of joy.
Going for family drives is a weekend tradition our family really enjoys. The scenery is breathtaking, and I adore that there are so many photo opportunities everywhere we go. We bring plenty of snacks, coloring books, and toys to keep the kids occupied as best we can.
It is wonderful when Big Brother discovers a train passing by and gets extremely excited. His huge love of trains has not waned yet. Or when Little Sister points out the window and says “Wow! That’s amazing!” It is so cute, it makes me laugh every time, even when I can’t figure out what exactly it is that she finds amazing in that moment.
The kids love the weekend drive even more if we stop for ice cream, and really who can blame them? Truth be told I think my husband and I enjoy the ice cream stop almost as much as they do.
Last weekend on our drive we came across a barn that I thought was spectacular. I took some photos and had to share them with you. Even if you don’t share my love, full out obsession with barns, I think you’ll still enjoy the beauty.
Through one of our second floor windows in our home you can see a red barn in the distance and I couldn’t be happier about it. While doing our weekly shopping I already purchased a 2011 Barns calendar, which I am anxiously awaiting hanging in the office.
Barns are just one of those things in life I find incredibly beautiful and bring me a lot of happiness. Just writing about them makes me excited for no particular reason.
