Regular Life. Springtime!

Here is a crazy huge snapping turtle crossing the street at Bird Brook to find a place to lay her eggs.
Look at those claws!

Frog and newt time again!

Georgia gathering sap.

Cookie looks so angelic

Some spring sunshine and dear Sparkle

My three weeks of antibiotics are finished! Whoop it up!!
Lily also got strep so she has 10 days to finish and her's taste foul so she has to hold her nose. Thankfully she's almost done.

Leave our home, Strep!

Cookie loves to sleep in the mudroom where she won't miss any comings and goings.

Frog eggs from the vernal pool at the bottom of our yard. Georgia is beyond thrilled at the sudden arrival of a pond filled with singing frogs.

Hooray for PEEPERS! Hear them singing.

Ikea road trip during April vacation. Everyone ate the meatballs and loved laying on all the beds and chairs like Goldilocks.

We went to the crappy beach covered with trash across the street from the Ikea in New Haven and found crabs making weird bubbles and lots of baby crabs hiding under bigger crabs, shells and many horsehoe crab shells in pieces. It felt like no one had been there in forever.

Easter at our house this year, which was a first.

The bunny was good to us. The girls made these sweet bunnies out of bendaroos. I love the carrots.

Easter morning and then Easter day spend outside making a safe chicken pen for the chickens (We lost another one to a loose dog. My chicken. Cupcake. Don't want to talk about it.)

Georgia and frog and chocolate bunny. She did not get her hands confused and bite the wrong creature. Thank goodness.

Pear blossoms

We made a new chicken pen so that we can keep the chickens safe and contained. Hmmmm See that they have escaped and are wandering. Sigh. We think they're flying out, but they are very sneaky so no one has witnessed it yet.
