April seemed to fly by for us. I still can't believe April is over. I blinked and it was May. We managed to do quite a bit and stayed uber busy as usual.
|We got some new baby chicks to replace the ones that were all eaten by neighborhood dogs. Remind me to express how much I hate dogs that wander the neighborhood eating my chickens and pooping on my lawn.|
|Briya was so cute with the chicks. I had it in my head to set up a super cute photo shoot with Briya and the chicks, but it never happened and now they are no longer chicks, but teenager chickens... not quite the same cuteness factor.|
|The pictures cracks me up. Briya and the chick were staring each other down. (On another note, you'd think I'd be terrified of the chick on Briya considering what happened to Mav last year, but nope, they are too cute to be able to cause any harm.)|
|Mav has become quite accustomed to having a little sister and loves to entertain her and share his toys with her and pile her toys all over her. It's adorable.|
|We had several firepit fires and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Probably one of my favorite things of all time to do. It's so relaxing and peaceful.|
|I spontaneously decided that I was going to make some jam after I saw how cheap the strawberries were on sale. Briya wanted to help, of course.|
|My sister in law, Amy, and I spent about 5 hours canning strawberry jam. It is so delicious and we got almost 50 jars!!! We are set for a little while I think.|
