Trip to the Farm

This past weekend Ryan & I had a lot of fun visiting his parents at their farm in Kansas and his siblings in Wichita/Sterling.  I documented most of the weekend with my iphone via instagram.  If you follow me you've probably already seen most of this pictures but if you don't I'm posting these here for you! :)  You can follow me by searching my user name ebrigl or by going here.

Susan is forever updating her living room.  Remember her silver theme here?  This time she added a bunch of fun, bright spring colors.  She even dyed her couch yellow!

Pretty much all day Friday I went around and snapped fun pictures of farm life.  It's so nice to just relax and soak up the country.
Avatar the tag along cat.  He goes where ever you go.

Feeding Betty the lone surviving chicken.

Betty's excited because she is about to get a whole new house!  Where she's standing is going to be a pretty sweet chicken coup.  Once it's finished Betty will get a whole bunch of new friends.

And of course Annie the family dog.  She loves Ryan so much!  I've never seen a dog get so excited to see a person before.

After a lazy day we some how managed to work up an appetite and moseyed on over to Little River to eat at the famous Fat Boyz.  Apparently they have the best hamburger's in the area.  They tasted great to me and I LOVED the sweet potato fries.

Afterwards, Sally & I rounded out the evening with some sidewalk chalk art.

And one more picture of Avatar trying to figure out how to get out of the tree. Ha!

The next day we headed to Wichita to visit Sean & Emily (and of course their dog Charlie).
Emily & Charlie outside of their adorable home.

They took us on a tour of the area and Ryan about caused a wreck when he saw this.  He pulled over and made me take a picture of the original Pizza Hut.  It's no longer operating. :(

Sean & Emily live near a really awesome park that even has a miniature zoo in it.  It was such a nice day out that Sally & I got a little crazy playing around in the park.

We met up with one of Ryan's cousins, her kids and Aunt Allan for lunch, and I totally forgot to take a picture! 
Then went over to Uncle Alan & Aunt Linda's place to check it out since I've never seen the inside.  Amazing!  It was like my dream house.  And I got to meet this sweet little guy named Henry.  I wanted to take him home with me!

When we got back to the farm Ryan's parents had started a bonfire so that we could have a weenie roast.  It was the perfect night for it.

What's a bonfire without S'mores??

I'll never forget that special night.  Especially the girls (Susan, Sally & I) all dancing around the fire singing Adele songs.  I'm sure we looked crazy to any onlookers.  Ha!

All and all, it was a wonderful weekend with family enjoying each other and the beautiful weather.  I'd say it was pretty perfect.


  1. Your in-laws sound perfect!  We went to the zoo also and I made Peep s'mores off the smoker while JJ was grilling Saturday night.  Can I say I was with you doing those things? :)

  2. I love a good weekend on the farm! That sparkly fire picture really caught my attention on Instagram. So pretty!


I'd love to hear from you!
