Summer Catch-up!

We had a fun day in the sun with lots of family.

While at the lake we celebrated Julie and Xander's B-Days.

Julie actually went out on the lake.

The kids had tons of fun in the sand.

Chicken Tractor!

This is what I've been working on!

I know! It's not very pretty, but it works great!

I used all kinds of scraps lying around the yard to build it.

If you want to see more check out this web page...

I'm hoping they'll help with our slug problem :)

Bunny Fun!

Our rabbit had babies!

Aren't they soo stinkin' cute!!!

They are 1 1/2 weeks old. Their eyes aren't even open yet.

Elora's Teeth

Elora's been having a hard time eating lately. We had hamburgers the other night and it was quite entertaining watching her eat!

Her two front teeth are loose and two of her bottom teeth are missing.

Her front tooth on the left is just dangling, and it has been for several weeks now.

But she wont let me touch it :P

May Day!

So, now that it's the last week of May I'm finally getting around to blogging about the first week of May :)

Every year our little town has a May Day celebration complete with parade, games and venders. The parade just happens to start on our street (right there at the stop sign in the picture).

So every year we stand in our driveway and watch while the kids scramble around picking up candy that people throw at them.

This is the very end of the parade.

Xander and Danika were happy with all the candy they got.

Later that day we went to the DeGeod Bulb farm. They farm Tulips! We bought some plants and strolled through the show garden they have. Then it started pouring right as we were leaving.

My girls!

So, that was our May Day!

Field Trip

Zach, Danika, Xander and I were able to got to a WAVA(WA Virtual Academy) outing for Zach's school. We went to Ridgefield Wildlife Bird Refuge and were able to go on a tour of the Long House. We learned all kinds of neat things about the Indians that lived in the area.

It was fun and beautiful, especially since we had perfect weather while we were there!

This is a really old Oak tree!

Happy Easter Birthday!

Elora was so excited for her B-day this year, because it just happened to be on Easter!

So, we colored eggs, had a yummy Easter dinner and then had cake and presents!

For Easter our ward had an Easter egg hunt and lunch.

The Primary was in charge and we had lots of fun planning this activity!

The highlight of the day (beside the egg hunt) was a table we prepared of food that Jesus might have eaten.

I learned a lot about how different food was back then and how simple and good it was too!

We even had leg of lamb and it was sooo good!

We also had "regular" food too.
But Pete outdid himself this time with his gorgeous looking chocolate filled, chocolate cupcakes!

Hatching Chicks!

In this picture all the eggs have been pipped by the chicks.

The first one to hatch was the green egg!

Zach has named this chick Strong!

This one is my favorite :) Danika named it Chopper.

(this is the green egg chick)

Elroa named this one April.

They are all super cute and I can totally understand "chicken math" now!
