Daddy/Tractor Time

Chris had some fields to disc through so we took him to the tractor. Once we got there, Lucas had to go with Chris. So Chris and I planned that I would come back and get him 30 minutes later. He didn't last 15 minutes before the vibrations of the tractor lulled him to sleep. So being the great daddy he is, he took his jacket and made Lucas a bed in the back window of the tractor.

Boise Trip

Came over to Boise to get a bed, dresser  and of course see grandma.

      Lucas got to meet his new cousin.
          (Britni Bird Killeen and Zeke)

We went to Dairy Queen and boy did he like it.

          I think they love each other!

Then Lucas and William played outside with grandma's fountain.


   Grandma broke out the accordion and  Lucas danced and loved it.

We sent Luke down the big boy slide for the first time and he loved it..... He loves watching this video.

We finished out our trip at the local park. We had quite the group join us. It was so much fun to be with the Bird kids again. I have missed them so very much...

It was a fun and joyful trip. We were also able to enjoy the conference talks. I love being able to hear from our church leaders. There is always a talk or subject that is just for me, like they asked me a question and answered it. I love that about our church.

Chickens and Eggs

We have been getting an average of 4 eggs a day and they have be fun colors lately.  Generic white and brown eggs of course. But lately we have had brown eggs with freckles and bluish green eggs. They are sure pretty. We even got an enormous egg that when it was cracked it  had a double yoke. I didn't think I would enjoy having chickens but I love it.

             Check out those colors.
        All washed up. You can see the       freckled egg by the two blue ones.

Snow Snow Snow and more Snow!

Sunday we had the best snow storm of the winter, it only took until the end of March to achieve it. It started as we were getting ready for church it started to accumulate and by the time church was out at noon, we had almost 10 inches of heavy wet snow. 

Chris gave Luke a handful so he could feel it, instead he forced a handful into his daddy's mouth, and I was fortunate enough to capture this moment.

Checkin' On The Ol' Farm

We took the opportunity to check on the farm since it was a nicer evening. We loaded the quad and sent out for our adventure. We checked the cows, alfalfa fields, and the chickens. It was a a great time well spent together as a family.

      Our chickens are in full production. 
              Eggs Eggs, & more Eggs.
                        Pure Joy!

Blackberries and Raspberries

I learned this week that Lucas loves raspberries and blackberries. Gave him some to go with his scrambled eggs for breakfast and left to work while he ate, and this is what I came back to.

What do you do when this happens? Take picture and then throw him into the tub. I had little purple hand prints all over the edge of the tub.

Goose Egg

Luke decided he wanted to see what would happen if he took a nose dive into his changing table. 
Obviously the changing table stood its ground. It gave him a whopper of a 
goose egg. 
I think Luke is starting the terrible 2 stage. The night before he pulled his bed stand table on top of him, today he was in time out in his crib and he decided to climb out making him fall out and he also took a nose dive off the fire place. I am hoping he learned his lesson after the changing table mishap. But I bet he didn't.
