If you can’t already tell by the shamelessly cheesy title, we went kayaking at Tip-A-Canoe on the Harpeth River today! From the first time I went kayaking several years ago, I was an instant fan! There is something so peaceful about floating along the water, listening to the birds chirp and feeling a gentle breeze against your face. It’s fun to try and spot the turtles sunning themselves on logs or even birds’ nests at the top of the tallest trees. Tennessee has the added beauty of being filled with imposing cliffs and we saw plenty of them while kayaking today. I looked up and saw five giant nests of what I can only assume we’re herons. There was a small waterfall on the bank of the river and geese were sitting wit their babies near it.
We recently had a few days of rain so the river was flowing faster than normal. We got to be mini-daredevils going through the “rapids.” No pictures unfortunately, because I left my phone in the car so it wouldn’t get wet.
So needless to say, I would definitely recommend kayaking as a fun family sport. It’s good for beginners and its so fun!! 😀
Forgive the cliche title. (lol) But I realized it’s been almost two years since I last blogged! Things have been very busy on the farm. We’ve had many births, including our baby goat Liv. We just got a new batch of chicks and two more ducks to keep our other duck company. We sold our male goat Charlie and got a new buck named Duke. We got two great pyrenees puppies named Leia and Dottie and they are sweetie pies.
We also got two baby bunnies named Chester and Rosie.
(Here’s Rosie when we first got her. And below is her a week or two ago with Chester)
We had a wonderful Christmas on the Farm event this past Christmas. The farm looked gorgeous all decked out in lights and Santa and Mrs. Claus even visited the farm. We had bonfires with smores and a giant Christmas tree that my parents cut down in the pasture and brought to the center of the field.
Today (April 15) is my one year anniversary at Cracker Barrel. I just received three stars on my apron and I was recently cross trained at the cash register and I’m loving it!! (The picture below is one year ago today on my first day of training.)
I’m very busy with school, as it is the end of the semester and finals are coming up so I’m going to wrap up this post. There’s always lots going on around the farm so I’m sure I’ll post more soon.

Hope to see you at our grand opening September 6!
As you can tell, it has been a while since I last posted. We have been busy bees working on the farm!
The grand opening of Harmony Farm is set for September 6 and we have been busy painting signs, purchasing supplies, building facilities, getting literally a ton of sand from Clarksville for our sand box, giving out fliers and coupons at the Charlotte festival, and blogging (lol) among many other things. All in the area, please join us for farm fun on September 6! Below is a picture of the family on our farm. Most activities on the farm will be taking place right behind us in this picture.
I leave you with this beautiful picture of Chattanooga (which I found and did not take myself). Please visit if you ever get the chance. It is a wonderful place. I love it and wish I could visit more often.
