Out of town and look what happens.

We went on a wonderful family vacation, which I am going to blog about next after this, but first I just had to say this.... We don't buy all organic stuff because it is too expensive, and with Aaron being a farmer, we have learned that "organic" isn't what it use to be :) but we do buy organic milk. With the big amount of growth hormones that are injected in cows, we feel it's important to at least buy organic milk for the girls. I won't go into all the details of the what the research says, but that's not my point. The point is that when we got home from our vacation last night, I went to Wal Mart to purchase some standard things such as milk and bread. I went to grab a gallon of the organic milk that we usually buy and it had gone up to $7.50 a gallon. I about fell over. It was already high! I couldn't bring myself to buy the whole gallon. I just paid the $3.50 for the half gallon :( I guess I will be making my way over to Braums. I was informed by a friend that Braum's wholesome milk is less than half the price of organic, and it isn't certified organic milk, but it is "all natural with no hormones added. I just wish there was a Braums a little closer....wait a I don't. That would be dangerous :) I LOVE Braums!

Aaron's grandparents live in Edmond and they live right downt the road from Braums. Braums is always a stopping place for us when we are on the road :)

Hey, Sprout's started selling milk under their label that is also hormone free. It is only about $3 a gallon!! I make it there much more frequently than I do Braums and it tastes great.
