It's A Big Scary World Out There!

The chickens got to go outside today because this finally was finished. What you can't see it, darn camo! It's our chicken tractor and hopefully this will allow my lovely flock to "free range" in safety.

What in the world does she expect us to do? I am not going out first, who knows what's waiting for us out there!

Oh, move out of my way! I'll go first. K, I don't see anything out here that wants to eat me. Come on out girls I think it's safe.

Hey, everyone there's food out here!

Mmmm, yummy! Tomatoes and feed. Oh my, look at all this glorious green stuff and dirt! Are we in heaven?

We are in Heaven!

Look at us! Hey, where's everyone else?

Hey girls, what's going on? We're too scared to go outside. Well, you don't know what your missing. Maybe we'll go out later. I don't know, you all look like a bunch of scaredy cats to me. CATS! Are you crazy woman, we are not going out there with cats! Silly chickens.

Moving Day

Moving day has arrived. We moved the chickens to the coop this week. They seem to be loving the space and seem to be enjoying my visits more. Maybe because I'm more on their level? We have a security system in place, i.e. the baby monitor. My husband thinks it's hilarious that I put the baby monitor out there. I said, "Well I want to listen to them and this way if something gets in we'll here about it".

Family Reunion

This last weekend we went to Wisconsin for a reunion on my FIL's side. My family, my In-laws and two sets of Uncles and Aunts stayed at a B & B there. That was great!

We visited and met family. We actually met some family on our way up at a rest area! Our license plate has our last name on it and they noticed and stopped to say hi.

We went for a hike next to the river. The boys loved that!

We ate at an A & W root beer restaurant. The boys really loved that!

We also visited the world's largest talking cow! That was odd!

The B&B was a beautiful home, the breakfast was yummy and the owners were super friendly and accommodating. On the morning we were leaving the boys were playing outside and G stole P's shoe. He was running backwards away from P, taunting him and fell in the fountain!! He was crying and freezing, it was 47 degrees that morning. We got him stripped, dried off and re clothed right away. What a memory he will have of our trip!

Also, on this trip my husband's Grandfather was presented with an honor stone. The High Ground is an amazing place. If you are ever up that way make a point of stopping to visit.

So, when I talk to "Rooster" I hear Carol Burnett screaming at her brother in the movie, Annie. But some have said that it's not allowed to name your rooster, well Rooster. And both of my boys have been hounding me about naming him something else. G wants to name him 'Lil Man and P wants to name him Rocky the Rooster(from the movie Chicken Run). So, dear readers give me your two cents worth.

I'm shopping!

I'm shopping for a new washer and dryer. Everybody chime and tell me what you like about yours or which one's you've been eyeing!
