The last couple weeks have gone by quickly. With nothing big on the schedule it left room for a lot of whatever we felt like doing.
Montana family was in town, they hadn't come in the summer for a couple years, so it was fun to do campfires and outdoorsy things with them again.
The animals are a handful right now. Chickens, turkeys, and bunnies everywhere. A couple more weeks and it's time to butcher the chickens.
The turkeys are growing, but still looking very much like the chickens
Our new batch of bunnies. Finally have a litter that didn't die. We've been having issues with the mommas this summer, not caring for them.
I love this picture of Clay with our Amish neighbors. He likes to chat with them :)
Our popcorn is so tall this year! The boys each have a little patch.
I spotted our first watermelon, i haven't ever grown watermelon before but i had room where the spinach and cabbage were and wanted to give it a try. Can't wait to see what happens, i hear it's a hard thing to grow.
We have some barn construction going on right now. It will look a lot different, more open and new concrete flooring. We want to put in a couple stalls for any new animals we might get down the road.Before pic:
Taking out some beams and the feeding troughs. Also digging out the concrete for a new concrete floor
We took the boys to the Buck over the weekend to see the monster trucks. They put on a great show. I wanted to go last year and it didn't work out. They bring in monster trucks twice a year at the Buck.
A lot of star wars talk was coming out of their mouths
Sunday after church we had some families over for a slip and slide. It was so hot that day, the kids loved it.
Rod wasn't impressed with the yard afterward :)
