Give me some more S'mores | July 2015

July 30, 2015

We had a fun family campfire across the street the other night. My dad and younger brother brought over two baseball gloves and a baseball, thus the game of catch began! Joseph (age 6) and Annika (age 9) play tag while my Dad and Liam (age 2) play catch with the baseball. This campfire also included races back and forth from the sheep's electric fence until we were all tuckered out except Liam who kept running for almost ten more minutes.







Joseph is an expert at starting the fire





The sunset was gorgeous


Look at Liam go!

Darcy, Collins, and Bingley | Summer 2015

July 11, 2015



We have three American Alpine goats that were pregnant and they all recently kidded! Three bucklings and one doeling. The kids are the sweetest things are are absolutely irresistible when they run and play together in the pasture. Last year our only goat at the time, Lady Jane Grey, had two little doelings, Cecily and Philippa. This year, we bred all of them. Lady Jane had two twin bucklings named Mr. Collins and Mr. Bingley (names from Pride and Prejudice). Philippa had one buckling named Mr. Darcy (again, name from Pride and Prejudice) and her sister, Cecily, had one doeling named Alice.

 Oh dear, it's sprinkling! Mr. Darcy decided to hide under his mother, Philippa







Mr. Collins is on an adventure!

Forest | Spring 2015

Earlier in the spring, I went for a little walk in the woods behind our house. The moss and foliage was bright green and so lush and beautiful.  My favorite pictures are the ones of the dripping pine needles. Aren't they beautiful?











Rhea | mini shoot | june 2015

This is our sweet cat, Rhea. She decided to join us for a campfire across the street and watched us roast marshmallows from afar. One of her favorite pastimes is catching mice, chipmunks, and voles and depositing them on the front porch. Yuck! :)

Enjoy!

This is my older sister Sarah.  She is the best and I am so blessed to have her as a sister.  We had a lot of fun playing on the swing in our woods and doing a photoshoot.  The mosquitoes were crazy but we managed to get a few good photos before getting eaten alive!  :)
