Out fencing.  Kids were not impressed, but there was dandelions.

So when you fence by water, there will be mud.  When there is mud there will always be kids to find it!

The meadow is still flooded ( takes a bit to get this much water off) so after playing in the mud, kids went swimming and worked on their back floating.

Brodie thought it felt pretty good to!

The last couple days we had some time to work on the barn, Uncle Vic and Aunt Anita were here to help!

Overlooking the meadow on top of the barn.  Flood irrigating.

Half of the barn roof is on!  Just need felt paper, tin, siding....  :)

Ran out of boards for the roof, so started up the sawmill.  Jake Larsen came up to!

New addition to the ranch!  The babies are just for fun for now and will go down the road eventually.  

Molly wasn't to sure about being in the same pen as the sheep, but soon got over it.

Triplets from a couple days ago!

Lambs all bedded down

Today we had triplets!  All boys out of this one.  Luckily we were watching, the 2nd one born was born in the sack and we were able to get him cleaned up and breathing!

Feeding the bum.  I now have help.  The oldest lamb has all the sudden became my best friend when I'm in the pen.  Loves to be scratched.  Also the cat gets  jealous and has to be on my lap.

So we have a new kitten to take care of.  Kids are loving having one they can play with! 

Greenhouse work:  Trying out the pallet ideas that are all over.  

Strawberries in here.  Of course the planter didn't turn out like the picture, it never does!  So we just paint it and act like its supposed to be this way.

Saturday project: trying to finish the green house.  The wind did a number on the sides, had to make a few adjustments and we were back to where we left off.  Bo is helping us get dirt into the greenhouse.

Brooklyn making sure we got enough.

Kids wanted to roast marshmallows Sunday night.
