Diesel is 14 and a half years old and still has to be everywhere his mamma is and is still, without a doubt, the most handsome man I have ever met.
Diesel loves Jäger, his buddy, the ferret.
Serenity says, “CHEEEEEEESE!” while Diesel enjoys the fresh cut grass.
No worries, Diesel will make sure Jager does not wonder off too far.
Bet you will never guess who painted that egg… 😉
Painting is obviously exhausting for both Tahlia and Serenity 😉
When the neighbors dogs attacked our chickens last year, Ethan favorite little buddy was one of the casualties. He was a little bantam chicken that we called him “Cowboy” because he had feathers on his legs and feet and looked like a little cowboy wearing chaps <3 I was SOOOOOO stoked to find another one that looked JUST LIKE little Cowboy did as a chick and make that Ethan’s Easter Surprise <3
We always have the kids Easter baskets ready for them to go through in the morning before they go out and find the eggs that the Easter bunny hid. In addition to the loot in their baskets, we had an additional surprise for the boys! We have a little Silkie Bantam Rooster that is just the absolute cutest little guy. He tries to stand up and posture like a Rooster, but he is so silkie and soft and adorable that it is simply impossible to take him seriously as a tough guy LOL. Because he is a Bantam, he is much smaller than the rest of our chickens, so the boys have been asking for MONTHS to get him some “friends.” We found a farmer about 2 hours south of us that had some Silkie chicks! The hardest part was keeping them a secret until Easter!
The kids were holding the Silkie chicks for a photo when one of them jumped/attempted to fly and landed on Anya’s (kitty) back! I do not know what amused me more- Tahlia’s “There it goes” expression, Korbin’s “One of the chicks is on Anya!” or Anya’s “I am not a-mew-sed” lol
Trying out a new lens on the camera…
There are always prizes given once we count up the eggs, so rushing out to get the most can get competitive! lol
On your mark… get set…. GO!!!!!!
Impressed with the haul, Yoda is.
