Yes I did! We had lots of fun. Grandson is doing very well. Saw a lot of pretty sights. Had a terrific diner at Salty's (I had the whole dungeness crab, delish. Did a lot of shopping. Very tired, good to home.
Seeing your post made me smile, elf.

I haven't read the entire thread...(very long!!)

but laughed out load this week coming to work when I saw some calves in the field running. It's really kind of funny, because it's more like jump-running. They don't quite know what to do with their legs, so they kind of jump straight up and then forward.... I drive through the country on my way to work.

Kathy,
You should see them the first few moments after birth, Scraggly,wet,shakey, they tremble as they start to nurse, but if your close enough you can feel how warm and soft they are, there is nothing quite like a lick from a youg calf or foal..And they have that "puppy breath" Just watching them stutter tep along makes me smile.

I have! I grew up in Michigan on a dairy farm... last time I was home, my brother said he never gets tired of watching newbies. I think he had 3 born during the week I was home. and guess who got to bottle-feed. I tell you, if you've never tried to bottle-feed 3 calves in the same pen..... with 1 bottle.... meaning you're fighting off 2 of them while 1 feeds!!!! Those 2 ended up sucking on my pant legs. so funny.

I know, I've done that here when my son was at home, and first learning to raise his brahmas. I've gotten knocked down by an over eager youngster when they try to get the milk to come out of the bottle faster It's fun though and they are cute..Love when they trail after you saying Maaaaaaaaa

We were at the park Saturday night and they have a bandstand there. All of a sudden my 4 year grandson got up on it and started to sing all of his favorite songs he learned from his day care. It was so sweet.
