RAIN, rAIn, RaiN!

Go away!
Come Again
Like never, K?
It seems like it has been raining non-stop for months. It is crazy how much it's been raining, the chickens are standing in one big muddy stinky puddle (poor things) and around our well is a frog pond...
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine shine in, the sun shine in...

Asa's Trip

Here are some more pics of Asa in his most magically place on earth. Who needs Mickey and Donald when you have campfires and beach days.... Back there again next week with cousins and friends, this time I get to go too :)

Happy Boy and Crabbing

Asa is living the dream right now. He is in Maine with Grammy and Grampy and lovin' it... Though he really hates when it's time to leave his favorite places (on earth) like the beach. He would sleep there if he could...

Happy Boy @ The Beach

Crabbing @ Wells Harbor
Thanks Mom and Dad for dragging him around. I imagine he needed to be dragged away from these two places because he's loving it...

Summer can start now...

Summer can start anytime now! It can start for two reasons. One, I'm done with my crush at work with Graduation and Reunions and for two, it needs to stop raining and the temperature needs to rise above 80 degrees! It has been such a cool and rainy spring that our corn and beans need to be replanted in our garden and my butterfly bush just looks like twigs coming out of the ground. My peony bush hasn't even blossomed! The chicken runs' are so muddy and YUCKY that one of our new girls has a bacteria infection on her bum and now I will have to give my first ever chicken bath - lucky me... What I've read it should help with a Epsom salt bath and some providione.

We've let the chickens out a little more and more since our fox snatch. We haven't seen her again, but know that there are more then one in our woods! Look at my pretty boy Toppy or Reginald, or Topper-rooner... He gets called all sorts of names cause he's so darn cute!

He still gets picked on my the others, the back of his head is bald from pecking, but my boy is holding his own...
Asa's last day of school is tomorrow and then he heads to Maine Thursday with Grampy to meet up with Grammy, Derrick and Ashleigh. It will be his first long weekend away from home, I know he'll be fine but not too sure about me :( Looking forward to some down time and getting things done around outside and in the garden. Saturday I may just do nothing but sit in the sun with iced beverages since it's my 37th birthday! Happy Birthday to me :)

More Birthday Pics

The Birthday Fairy decorated in the night.

Ignore the overfilled closet in the background...

He wore his crown all day. We finally had to peel it off before tubby time.

Happy 6th Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my Big Boy. He kept singing happy birthday to himself this morning! Cutest thing ever! We made rice crispy treats with graham cracker and melted chocolate on top for his class today. My thinking was - S'mores to go! I hope you have a wonderful day Asa, you are the king of your world. Mommy and Daddy love you and are so proud of you!
Dropping off at school...
