The Beautiful Land

Here are some pictures of the land and the house.  You'll see some pics of us in there having fun also.  You'll notice that a portion of the land is being mowed at this point and the majority is not.  So the portion that is not mowed is roughly waist to almost shoulder height on me.  One of the next purchases for us is zero turn mower.  We also have some woods on the left of the property which you may be able to see as well.
  More pics to come in the next post!

This is just one of the many views that we fell in love with!!

Below you'll see a picture of my garage, or as they say "round hur" my pull barn! 

Out yonder you'll see a farm with over a hundred heads of cattle (over 100 cows and sheep)
Corn Field

Tall Grass and Corn Field

So we will be positioning the back of our house to see this sunset every night.  You cant tell here but the sun is on the way down.  Kristen came up with the brilliant idea for us to position the house so we can view the sunrise every morning from our master bedroom and front of the house and every night as the sunsets we will be able to view it from our kitchen, dining room and back patio.  As you can tell with all this land we should have no problem being in the perfect spot for catching the beautiful sunsets!
Cant wait till you visit and take it all in!
In the below pictures you will see that we had a farmer come and bail the back yard.  You'll notice that he bailed a good portion of it but needed some additional equipment for some of it that was not done.  But you'll be able to see a good difference in what the land looks like when it's semi kept up.

 Soph is off and running in the distance, and Nora is waiting on me,
So the bailing process is a 3 step process.  First they (we) take a bush hog and go through tall grass and cut it down.  Second step is to go through with a different tractor and put the hay/grass in piles of rows.  Thirdly you'll see in the last pictures they roll it up with yet a different tractor.  
 In the below picture, I'm trying to give some prospective here... i'm almost in the corner of the yard here and the closest person you can see is Nora on the left side of the screen.  Sophie is standing next to the tree on the right side of the screen in her light purple/white shirt, and our current house is up there in the middle. 

The rest of these pictures, you'll see that they have bailed the hay.  Bailing is a Win/Win/Win for all parties involved.
1. We get our yard taken care of for FREE
2. The Farmers come and bail and collect it so they can feed their cattle
3. The cows/sheep/alpacas/Reindeers get to eat some good home cooking from the Stewarts!  Our grass is 100% natural and 100% free of preservatives, GHB, steroids, antibiotics, triptophan, aspertane, and MSG.  So they can eat it up and feel guilt free! 
Fun Pictures after a long day of playing with friends and playing in the splash pad.
