A little over a month ago, we acquired eight chickens. We thought that it would be nice to have our own fresh eggs and that the girls would have fun with them. And, hey, if Jacob can do it in the city, why can't we? About a week ago, we moved the chickens into their permanent residence of the coop by the side of the house. The girls love to play with them. Especially Lindsey. She has become quite the little chicken catcher lately.

Lindsey is surprisingly gentle with the chickens.

Not quite all of the chickens.
This is the coop that Jason built. I think that we might end up painting it, but it looks nice as is too.

This is what happens...

When you play too hard! Lately the girls have been enjoying their days playing with the hose no matter what the weather. They wear themselves out though and this is what happens later that afternoon.

Winter May?

I know that these next pictures are a little old, but I just wanted to share them and show how wet and snowy our Spring has been this year. We got about 7-8 inches of snow in just one night at the beginning of May. It was so much snow, that I thought we were going to be snowed-in, but thankfully it was starting to melt off by that evening.

The girls getting ready to play in the snow. BoBo wanted to come play too.
After I got the driveway and front walk shovelled. It took me about an hour because it was such wet and heavy snow.
This picture gives a really good idea of how much snow we really got.
Jason had just put our hammock back up and then it got covered in snow. So sad!
So this is what we did for the rest of the day because the girls were cold and tired from playing in the snow. I love snuggling with my girls!
