BARN love

While I was feeding our BIG cows this week, I found some time to take a few snapshots with my camera-phone. While they are NOT the best quality, I still love the idea behind the pics and maybe someday will get my great big "professional" camera down there and take some good ones.
My kids and I have a fascination for barns...we always swoon over them on drives through the countryside, and often stop and take pictures of them. But this particular barn at Irishman Acres is definitely our favorite!

This barn is probably my favorite thing on our is only 2 yrs old now, but has been a part of 4 births, a slumber party (in the hay loft) , great shelter from the snow and rain for our cows and Dixie, and a roosting station for our Guinea Fowl at night. Not even to mention has been an awesome backdrop for photography sessions.....
Gunnar's 5 year old the frame of the barn.

Emma's Senior pics Fall 2011.

These are Emma's Senior pics that I just scanned, not great images, but  the originals are priceless!
This barn was designed and built by my wonderful, strong, handsome BaileyHusband.......and we couldn't be more happy with how it turned out!
I hope to get inside the barn soon and get it "cleaned". The little Charlotte's Webs have taken over in every nook and cranny. I'll be sure to put that on my to-do list....for next month :)
