April 2014 – A Month Of Photos From The Red Double Wide

April was incredibly busy, but full of amazing cuteness. 😀

We started off the month with our spring break.  I figured it was a good time to bring home our first batch of chicks for this year.  The girls want to take bantams to the fair in August so they picked out four bantam chicks at the feed store.

PeepThis batch of chicks brought with them a lot of firsts for us.  Our first bantams, our first brooder in the house, and our first time using a EcoGlow Brooder instead of a heat lamp.  This was also our first time picking chicks that we didn’t know the sex or the breed.  The only thing we were sure of was that they were CUTE!

DandelionWe bought 10 blueberry bushes. We weren’t ready for them, but they were too cheap to pass up. (I LOVE blueberries!)

Spring with a photo bomberOur old mower was unable to be revived this spring so Digger and Jade brought home a new one. (well, new to us)  It was great to find something local that we needed just in time that’s in great shape for a fair price!  Little Chef was super excited to get a new mower; she does lots of the mowing.

Last years green onions starting to bloom.  I thought they were beautiful.

Tilling the gardenWe had a wonderful Easter celebrating our Lords resurrection with family, friends and great food!

Easter EggsThe girls and I got to take a trip to Newport, Oregon with my mom and a few of my siblings.  This was the view from our beach house!

Newport, ORWe visited the aquarium and the science center while we where there too.  What fun places!  This was perfect for Jo as she’s doing a report at school on Orcas.  🙂
