Down On Grandma & Grandpa's Farm

Yesterday (Saturday) my husband, Jayden, and I went to visit my parents out in Tonapah.  If you don't know where that is its about 40+ miles west of Phoenix in the middle of nowhere.  Yes my parents live there!  It seems my parents have decided to start their own little farm.  When they moved there they already had 5 dogs, all Chows.  Now they have grown. 
One of the dogs has had puppies!  There are 5 baby chow puppies almost 2 weeks old.  Jayden loved the puppies, he wanted to hug and kiss them all.  And while we were there we learned that another of the dogs is pregnant and should have puppies in the next 2 weeks. 

They also have 4 horses! Jayden helped to feed the horse while we were there.  The horses loved sniffing Jayden and they were happy that they were given some treats like apples and sweet stuff.

They also have 10 baby chicks!  There are 5 different breeds of chickens.  Jayden had a great time chasing them.  Grandma and Grandpa didn't think that he could catch them, but they didn't know Jayden's quickness.  Jayden was able to pet the chicks and feed them. 

Grandpa and Daddy took Jayden on a short ride around the property on the quads.  He LOVED it!

Jayden had a great time on Grandma & Grandpa's Farm!!  I am sure he can't wait for the next visit.  Next time they will have a couple goats and maybe a sheep too!
