Spring bits and pieces

Winter turned quickly into a warm spring, the warm weather didn't last long, so we had to make the most of it while it was here.

Hubby was away for a week, as a return treat the children asked for a fish meal. They all went outside to gut the fish on his return :) hehe that's a great welcome home gift "missed you, here's 6 fish for you to gut" :D

K helped me to fix up and beautify the older chicken coop
and while we did that, B took apart an old hand mixer
and Kiki and Googs played on the swings
The finished coop :) It has a new floor, new roosts, new door, and new nest box roof. I had to climb inside through the nest box to nail down the floor :P I'm glad no one thought to take a photo :)
We took a walk to the farm to meet some of their new additions.

And we spent a fortune on seeds!

We love spring :)

The pictures are beautiful. I would love to live on a farm, maybe my next life.
