Saturdays here on the farm bring many hands to help with the work load!
Yesterday was no exception…..and I must say, I LOVE Saturdays.
We even were blessed with Grant’s presence for a few hours in the morning before he headed to work!
I was as excited as the kiddos to see the pool being set up!
I was not excited though when Blake came to find the rest of us to announce that a mouse had eaten a huge hole in the bottom of the pool.
Thank you very much, Mr. Mouse.
Hoping and praying that this patch will hold all summer!
Eliza had a fun day too!! She loves water!
And she loves her Daddy being home! We ALL do!!
She loves Anaya!
And she loves “swing time!”
Kayla did not have to work at her job, so she was here working instead and directed the planting of the garden!
I worked with her, and we had many other helpers at different times!
David was able to join us in the afternoon!!
Thanks for helping us in the garden, David! And for doing chores! And for cleaning the hen pen! And for sharpening the knives in the kitchen! And for loving our precious daughter the way you do!!
See these beautiful flowers? They will soon be strawberries!
David’s sister arrived in the evening, and helped Addie Mae run the kitchen!
They have been painting too!
We had chicken fajitas and all the fixings for lunch. Beautiful and yummy!! Couldn’t resist taking this photo!
At one point we moved the horses over to one of the newly fenced areas that we have just had the cows on for a couple of weeks.
I love to watch them run and prance when they get excited!
Friday night Blake and I went on a much needed date.
We had a picnic for dinner! On the patio at Starbucks!
And then we had many errands to do. So it was a busy date.
But I loved it anyway.
Addie Mae watched the younger ones for us, and they had a blast playing outside as the sun finally came out right at dinner time!
What a blessed weekend it has been! Life on the farm is super duper – but gets even better when many hands make for lighter work!
Hope your weekend was blessed too!
