Family Time

 My aunt Deloris and cousins Roy and Dustin made a pass through mom and dad's over the weekend.  We made a quick trip up to see them and enjoyed a few hours together.  Taylor was showing off his t-ball skills while Roy was catching.  Dad and Tim grilled us up some great steaks and hamburgers.  Julie and Ashley cooked up some good fixin's too.  And Forrest searched all of Norris City for hamburger buns!  It was beautiful weather outside and we had a great time just chillin' and grillin'.

It's a Zoo around here!

 Keeping up with the animals keeps us busy around the farm.  We have 7 new baby kittens, various transient cats, a rabbit and two dogs in additon to the ones pictured.  The baby red fox isn't ours, thankfully.  We spotted three babies ducking into the culvert after seeing the mom run across the road.  She was the prettiest red fox I've ever seen.  The babies were about the size of a small cat.

April showers bring May flowers

But I actually took this picture in April so I guess that doesn't count.  Riley and I planted these tulips in the fall and they were beautiful this spring.  She came running in the house after she had picked one and said "Mommy, I brought you a daisy!"  Normally I would not encourage the picking of tulips but who could rebuke that!

She saved up her allowance money (and at a $1 per week that takes patience) and bought these fairy wings.  I tried to talk her out of it thinking she'd never play with them but she has worn them everywhere.  This could be where she got those two ticks.  Hard to say.  The Marshall Ryegrass is hearty this spring.
