An end in sight....

Today the last field of corn will get planted....
We are delighted to have daddy home a little more again :) 
These 3-4 weeks in spring...
We know they come, we understand, but we are so happy when it's done!!

Hope you're ready to hike teapot daddy
because that's what Ranen would really like to do with you <3

Went for a run yesterday and a few climbs up the tower ... Felt so good

Saturday evening we did family night at the river... Such a hit! Will do that again!

My first Mother's Day picnic... Love this chick!

How we roll...

This life we call farming... �� it!!

We take what we can to get quality time with daddy right now... And if that means supper in the tractor, then let's do it!! Amazing what a few minutes together can do... My favourite part of any day!! 
This makes me so happy!! 
With spring field work you start feeling a little like a single mom, a little lost, a little (or lot) like you need a break... But then, you spend half an hour together and all normallacy returns!! 

Kids wake up this morning and first thing they do is hop back in the tractor... I guess I'll be bringing breakfast out too once Katie wakes!! 

Dogs frolicking in the waist high grass!! Even Ruby with all her kangaroo jumping can't see out!

And the pups... Going to their new homes this week...

I've got the tickets...

Honey, we are going on a date... in October!!
The 5 love languages... one of my favourite all time books!
It's author, Gary Chapman, is doing a Canadian Tour in October
and I bought tickets to the Burnaby event...
Excited to be going!
Honestly, this book/event gives the tools to
make a struggling relationship good,
a good relationship great
and a great relationship fantastic!!
$20 a ticket... such a steal!
book them before they are gone!

We are in love!
Especially Ranen; and Owen is slowly picking up
on the enthusiasm of his sister...
Katie also gets in her share of sweet cuddles...

The picture on the right... grimy face, pup in arms, real vibrant smile.... LOVE!

 so at ease and in love with them...  they will be well-socialized pups by the time they sell!
 so gentle... inspecting...
... fun times at our place!!
3 more chocolate females left to sell...

Such a GREAT day...

This cousin on mine.... She is SUCH a dear!! With a beautiful, sweet, caring and extremely giving nature she is a gem to have around!! We love her around here! 

A bike ride through the Blue Heron Reserve.... Not much beats that! A gorgeous day, a bike and a bird book... Right up Ranen's alley - she loved lookig up birds and their details! And with such a fabulous teacher - Larissa you are a gem! 

Pointing out the red-winged black bird!

Reading about the herons before we approached the nests... Did you know they lay between 2-4 eggs? And so many other neat details like flight paths etc.... Ranen soaked up every detail! 
Can't wait till we see you again Larissa... You are loved! ��
