Miss Songbird had a birthday - SIX!
She asked for a big pink cake and she helped bake.
She really loved that large cake .. and she had a great birthday.
A large family requires large cars ....
And finally ....
A large water heater.
To load this big tank in, of course, Jerome had to turn all the water off to the house. So, I took the kids for a field trip today.
We set off for an 1880's farm. Only about an hour away and totally free it was a wonderful day.
There were chickens.
We learned that the farmer is having trouble with Coyotes getting the sheep. He tried a lot of things, but putting a donkey in with the sheep solved the problem.
We visited the original family graveyard.
And the old equipment graveyard. When farm machinery was no longer usable it was left in a convenient place and then was used for parts. Now it is fun for boys.
It really was a great day on the farm.
As for this old guy ... he's gone and we are looking forward to living large with our new water heater!
