Living Large

Life with the tribe has been quite large lately.

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!

I am so jealous of that water heater! (and the free field trip too, looks fun!).
