Spring Cleaning..

The weather was beautiful out today! We thought it would be a good time to start some spring cleaning.. in our pastures - not that the house didn't need it, but make hay when the sun shines, right?
We're working on cleaning up the new pasture that was fenced in last fall. There's a lot to do, but we've started with an area that has a lot of trees down. This stump reminded me of a tombstone....
Maybe it's a memorial to all the trees that have died here and are resting in peace. (well, until the chain saws started up today)

We took time out for a family photo.. (put the camera on "auto") Wyatt wasn't ready for his picture to be taken when the light stopped flashing, but we can't expect him to smile for all his pictures. I think this is actually the first picture that i have of him crying! Despite his expression in the picture here, i think he had a fun day. (we all did)
This picture was taken at quitting time, the girls stopped by to see how much we got done. It's hard to tell that we got much of anything done, but it's a good start.


  1. I know how you feel - there are simply NOT enough hours in the day. Looks like you had a great day! Wyatt is getting so big!


  2. I LOVE your family picture! You and your husband look SO happy (especially for two people about to undertake hard, manual labor!) and it's about time we got to see Wyatt cry. I'm sure he was smiling again in moments.

    What a lovely family. He's a lucky baby.

  3. Maybe Wyatt was crying because he wanted HIS turn with the chain saw! Tell him he has to wait in line like everybody else ;-).
    What an attractive family you are! Good to see how you've weathered both childbirth and the winter.
