So my day on the farm was one of the best days I have had in a long time. MJ and I had a blast on the drive down and she showed me where you can get the best Coke. The minute we got out of the car I noticed how quiet it was. Living in the city I think I forget how loud it really is.
MJ was the perfect host and showed me all around the farm. I loved all the details she gave me about what the farm was like when it was a working farm. She then took me on a tour of the farm on the mule. I only knew what a mule was from watching "Little People Big World" and it was actually fun riding around on it. You know I am a city girl when riding on the mule felt like an amusement park ride.
As we were getting close to the cows MJ asked if I had ever been close to a cow. Because I hadn't she let me know that I should not make any sudden moves. That actually had me a little concerned and I wondered if I would be attached by the cows. A few did seem to have some anger issues and didn't seem to like the fact that I was taking their picture, but all in all they were great. I did ask if I could bring one of the babies back with me and I was reminded that they don't stay small for long.
MJ's family is awesome and I think I met everyone yesterday. Her Mom had asked if I grew up in the city and I told her that I had, but I had spent most of my summers as a child in Northern Minnesota and she said, "Yea, you have the country in you." I took that as a huge compliment.

As we were leaving I was told that I could come back anytime and I really don't think MJ's parents realize what they were saying to me. If I ever just disappear, look for me on the farm.
