Come on in....
Alexa and I recently spent 10 days at my parent's farm in Western Illinois. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago. I lived there for 27 years, then finally got fed up with the gray skies and headed West for wide open spaces and sunshine. I love living in AZ but will always be a Midwestern girl from Chicago. I love going home once a year, it's all about comfort and seeing Alexa experience a slice of some good old Midwest summer fun!
Here's Skokie the gate keeper. She is super sweet but hates having her photo taken which is a shame because she is really photogenic.
The first day started with boomerang fun in the field out back. Alexa spotted my dad's boomerang and had to try it out. They did not have much success but had fun trying.
Alexa loved hanging around the front gate and it's the perfect place for photos. Here she is in this year's favorite summer dress.
