Sorry I haven't been around much these days.  I'm on summer mode and haven't had the brain capacity to post much of anything.  Maybe I'll get back into the routine once September rolls around...maybe.  

Here are some photos to show what we've been up to around here.

Yesterday E spent a good 2 1/2 hours feeding, chasing and holding chickens at my cousin's house.  He and Little Miss also selected eggs to put in the incubator.  E is so excited to care for some baby chicks when the eggs hatch.  My cousin will be generously allowing us to take care of the chicks for a short time and then give them to her to raise in her yard.  I use the word "generously" very loosely ;/

In searching for a place to pick organic blueberries, I found Alpacas of Harkney Hill...visit the alpacas and pick blueberries.  We gave it a try.  We were able to tour the alpaca farm, feed the alpacas, and learn all about them.

 Then we picked some blueberries and by we, I mean Victor and I.  The kids chose to explore in the woods and climb rocks.

 Unfortunately we didn't really leave enough time to pick and because the blueberries were wild blueberries, it can take a long time to fill a container.  I wouldn't necessarily visit this farm just for blueberry picking, but if you're looking for something different and have a few hours to spend there, it may be a fun place for you to go.
 We also were able to spend some time by the ocean last week and the weather was perfect.

No trip to the ocean is complete without red sequined shoes.

 Little Miss was very excited to find the biggest of the jelly fish caught that day.

 These next two photos not only show how excited Little Miss was to steer the boat, they show how stinkin' cute she looks with a missing tooth.

And the sunset that evening was just beautiful!
