My little boy is almost 22 and all grown up, living on his own now. I thought of him while putting this basket together. Reminiscing about his childhood and his 2nd birthday when we had a Farmboy Barnyard petting farm party in our backyard. We had ducks, chickens, bunnies, goats and pigs there for the kids to pet and play with. Or I think back about the time we lived in a small townhouse and got him a duck...He name him Skipper. Skipper lived in his bathroom and would also swim around the bathtub with our boy in it too. That only lasted for a few weeks until Skipper grew too fast, we had to move him into the backyard...Then he outgrew the yard so we set him free at a local duck pond...LOL!!! The memories of that time are so vivid in my mind. He also had his beloved rabbit Jack who was a big part of the family until he was almost five. Then he got his first farm dog
(An Australian Cattle Dog) he named Scampy. Scampy had a short lived life of five years and left a huge hole in our hearts when he died suddenly. I think of my boy and his little farm animals throughout the years, though we didn't live on a farm...I wanted him to have special memories like I did as a kid growing up with animals. These memories will be forever imprinted in his life....I think he would have loved this Easter basket when he was a little boy.
This fun basket was simple to put together...
I hope it inspires you to make your own for the lil farmerboy in your life.
