This Little Piggy

We finally made it to the Hun-Tin house for the first time in a while.  It was so good to be back!  SaraGrace stayed behind this trip for a birthday party, so it was just me, Rob and Cade.  We had a lot of fun!!!

Cade was ready to work.  He looked so cute all dressed up, even in his Papa’s hat.hogs 001

He was so cute, I had to take two pictures.  Especially while he’s looking like a little Rob.

Rob had to drive the tractor to the woods, because when we got finished checking on the hogs, the boys mowed and cleared roads.

When we came to the first pen, this is what we saw.  I think they are so cute, but not many people agree with me.  These two got wormed and sent on their merry little way.

Macy helped us at our next stop.  Not really, but she thought she was helping.  A hog dog she is not.

This fella was a good size.

The next morning, we went to check hogs again.  None of the girls went except me.  It was a last minute decision, and it was terribly hot.  When I walked out the door, my husband insisted he take a picture because I looked like a “Hot Mess.”  He hit the nail on the head with “hot” because I was sweating before I ever made it outside.hogs 015 That’s the best looking brood sow in them there woods!

Cade and Papa were partners in crime.

This picture cracks me up!  It’s like they wanted to say, “CHEESE!”

I guess Rob didn’t get to laugh enough at me that morning, so he took yet another picture of me.  However, I think I wear the mountain momma look pretty well.

After we worked hogs, the boys had more work to do.  So Cade escorted me back to the house.  He thought he was big stuff driving that buggy all by himself.

I can’t wait to go back and have time to actually hunt.  Emmy is coming in the middle of the season, so I better get busy from the start.  That tree stand is calling my name!

OKAY so I almost wet my pants when I read "Brood sow" in reference to yourself, ma'am! Seriously, the funniest thing I've heard all day! Thank you :)
