 My boys love… I mean… LUUUUV… hanging out with their paw paw. Hanging out with their paw paw means there are TONS of fun things in store. You see, “Paw Paw,” lives {and operates} a beef farm, and a short trip to see him, usually includes seeing big, four-legged creatures that say “moo,” a tractor ride, and a “wade,” in the spring.

So the other day, we set out on an adventure and headed to Paw-Paw’s with a surprise in store for him. A Coke.

Our local Schnuck’s recently started carrying the “Share a Coke,” branded beverages again, and if there’s anything Paw Paw loves more than cattle farming, is a nice…cold… Coke.

In his own words:

I drink a Coke every morning for breakfast. There’s nothin’ better.

You see…you can find “proper,” names, and fun phrases on the “Share a Coke,” packaging {20oz, 6 pk glass bottles, 12oz cans, 16.9 oz bottes… in Coke, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero} & I just KNEW I’d find something that would say the perfect thing, for my kiddos to give to their paw-paw.

When we arrived at his house, as always… he was working outside, {hardest worker I know}, mowing his grass. Pulling in the drive, my boys shouted with excitement,

There he is! There’s Paw Paw!

{I may have told him to go inside and change his shirt, so I could take some pictures of him and the boys. I didn’t think a shirt covered in grass clippings would make for good photos.} 😉

Share a Moment, Share a Coke

{Farming + Grandkids + Coke = Paw Paw’s Day is Made}

Up on the tractor they went, handed Paw Paw his Coke, {he received the “#1” can}, and Mom was no longer “there.” Who needs mom when you have your paw paw, and a farm anyway, right?

I sat back quietly as the boys went about their business, and got the “work,” done.

There is something absolutely heart melting, watching your own kids, “light-up,” when they’re spending time with someone that makes you “light-up,” too.

Let’s go boys, time to feed the bulls…

Down on the Farm - Share a Coke

I forget how little they are until I see ’em like this. Such precious babies they are. 

My dad’s big “pet,” he calls it… this bull did NOT get the memo of the photo shoot. I mean… he could have taken a dip in the creek or something before I came.

Bulls - Share a Coke

 When the “guys,” were off getting more corn, I thought I’d offer up my new “little,” friend a beverage.

{Yes, I peed my pants a little bit, getting this close to it}

No Bull here - Share a coke

I completely believe he looked at me like I was crazy. {and I’m not feeding you a line of bull…}

{Seriously people, I could go on and on all day with puns. But I won’t.}

Bull! Share a Coke

Apparently word was traveling fast about the coke. In no time, the other bulls were heading over to see what all of the hype was about. 😉

Break Time

You know, that farmin’ is hard work. It was time to take a break, and head to the creek and grab a drink…{and skip a rock or two}.

Sharing a Coke with Grandpa

No words needed… {insert this momma’s heart melting}

Sharing a Coke with Grandpa… it just tastes better. Apparently.

Although we’ve made this trip to Paw Paw’s, a thousand and twenty three times,  {ok not that many surely} I’ve never just grabbed my camera to capture memories of it. I’m so incredibly thankful for these simple moments that we tend to take for granted…

But now… it’s time for Mommy to enjoy hers. 😉

      Thank you so much Amy!! I have to admit… I’m totally “hooked,” on capturing little simple moments of my kids now. That was just absolutely a blast. XO

  2. Amy says:

    So sweet! I didn’t grow up on a farm, but I grew up with them on all sides of me!

    1. Jessica says:

      Awww! Thank you! On all sides… well, then you pretty much did grow up on a farm. I’m sure you were blessed with all of the bugs, smells, and farm “extras.” Lol! Thank you so much for stopping by! XO
