I totally adore this photo. I also love the magnificent blue sky.

The colours in this photo are amazing, but the gorgeous girl is what I adore about this pic

At my parents small semi-rural block – I love that my children get a slice of what it was like for me growing up on the land…

(In saying that I was actually born and bred on a large sheep/cattle farm in New Zealand)

It’s another much-loved Wordless Wednesday

Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. I grew up on the dairy farm that my family still live on. So I know how you feel, I love taking the kids back there.
    Great photos!!

  2. Great photos. I am not a country girl but spent a lot of time on my husband’s family farm. This brings back memories. Rachel xx

  3. Cows! We had cows when I was a kid. Two. One was nice, the other was mean. We ate both of them. πŸ™‚

    • Ha ha. I gotta tell yah I’m a cow girl, rather than a horse or sheep girl. Sheep are pretty thick, and used to drive me insane on the farm. We ate heaps of them, although not our pets (I don’t think) πŸ™‚

  4. Awesome photos! Looks like everyone had a ball – bet they were exhausted afterwards!

  5. Gorgeous Photos! Wow that tree is amazing! I bet it would have some stories to tell if it could talk! Love big brother telling lil brother about the poo!
    My nanny and grandad live on a 5acre block with a cow and pony, chickens etc and I love it when we go to NSW and we can visit there. I got some lovely photos of my grandad and my daughter feeding the horse and cow a piece of bread.
    My ex-step mum, her new hubby and my bro and sis moved to a property in Brogo and I love going there too even though I’ve only been once! Its a bit hard to visit when we live in SA.
    I dream of having my own property one day with chickens, fruit trees & vines and vege gardens etc.

    • I’d love acreage but unless something changes it won’t happen for a long time, chooks would be great, as would vines etc. Isn’t it lovely when generations bond over animals, thanks for visiting!! Emily x

  6. I too grew up on a farm so I am a little jealous your family still gets too experience this way of life. I think it’s great for kids but it does have its down side as the kids want to become independent and do other things x

    • I am lucky that my kids still get to experience this way of life. You are totally right about the independence things, my three sisters and I are fiercely independent and still are. I appreciate the visit, x

  7. I always lived in town, but my dad was a farmer, and I loved the time I spent out at the farm (which was a lot). I loved the woolshed the most for some reason.
    How wonderful that your children get to spend time just being kids in nature – looks like they are all so happy.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog,
    x Sannah

    • The woolshed was a fun place, and so was the haybarn, we used to play in it all the time, such a fun place. I love it when kids are out enjoying nature, I’d much rather that than playing iPads, in saying that mine love to do that too! But it’s different world to what it was when we grew up right?! πŸ™‚

  8. I love your farm and cow photos too. Such happy memories.
    Thanks for linking up

  9. These are really nice pictures! It’s great that your children have the opportunity to spend time in this beautiful place!

  10. Gorgeous photos Emily. I especially like the action shot of your daughter blowing bubbles and the one following it of the massive tree bathed in a sunset glow. Glad you all enjoyed your holiday!

  11. We are escaping to the country this week. Can’t wait. Looks like you all had a great time. Lovely photos.

  12. Fabulous photos! There’s something about kids and the country that just go hand in hand. That cow and calf photo is gorgeous!

  13. That tree is incredible.
    Enjoyed your photos – especially the cows. Looks like your children got back to some good old fashioned outdoor play.

  14. I love your pictures! I can only hope one day I have children who can run around barefoot in the dirt & just be kids. I didn’t have that much as a child but now I live on property I’m making up for it now, it’s humble & liberating.

  15. Beautiful photos Em, your kids are so lucky to have a lovely place to visit. They’re going to have the best childhood memories πŸ™‚

  16. It must be a ‘cow’ kind of week…. I would love to have that country lifestyle every now and then! x

  17. Looks lovely – what a great opportunity for your kids.

  18. I love a good trip to the country!! Great pics!!

  19. Is that cow udder-feeding discreetly Kochie? Lol. What a gorgeous property your parents have. Your kids are lucky to have access to such a lifestyle, even if only for holidays.

  20. Love this post and your photos say so much! xxx
