little surprises

Some good, some not so good. 

We went up the the lake for a long weekend. We had two fabulous days which we spent on the beach. Followed by two rainy days spent catching drips from a now leaky cabin roof ... the not so great surprise. It's definitely been the year of cabin headaches. On our way back home the weather was nice enough to get a quick hike in up at Tony's Grove. Ryan's sister and her kids joined us. It was really nice and that area is full of trails to explore. Ryan and I could have hiked all day. The kids, not-so-much. They were great though and had a blast with their cousins.

The best surprise came when I put the chickens into their coop tonight. I checked to make sure all 4 were in (they put themselves in and immediately go to their nesting bar, I just close the door) and low and behold a cute little egg was sitting in one of the nesting boxes. Giddy excitement immediately swelled within. Seriously, so cool. And it's the prettiest little egg ever. It's hard to tell in the pics, but it's a sea-glass green color. Yippee! Can't wait to check and see if there are more tomorrow.
