Here are the newest members of our flock! Yesterday we welcomed chickens to the Stamps house. The boys are so excited. They want to be out in the coop all day chasing, holding, petting, and feeding them. They just can't get enough and honestly it's hard to resist just watching all they do, especially the mother of the chicks. The breeds we got are white silkie, a black jersey giant, a mixed silkie and an aracona-silkie mix. I can't remember what the momma hen is and her 6 chicks are yet to be determined. The chicks are just a couple days old. So FUN!!! The eggs will be brown and blue. We should get about 5 eggs a week from each hen and then the chicks will start laying eggs in about 6 months. We thought this would be a great adventure and, needless to say, learning experience for the kids. I'm sure mom and dad will learn a little too.

We had a fabulous time in Utah this weekend. It was great to see loved ones!!! We met Nate and Darli at Ikea and got a good shop and visit in. Sarah got to hang out with the girls for a bit. Just like old times but now with more babies in the picture! Thank you everyone for a great time!!!
The reason for the trip was to see Jim Lamb give his great farewell. It was great but we failed to get a picture with him. Even still, we got a photo of the better looking part of the family- Karen and Sid...sorry boys.

Cooper is wearing his Yoda cape that our friend Kellye made. He goes nowhere without it.
Fox's class went to the zoo so we met him there and walked around with his class. The boys loved it. The weather was beautiful.ahhhh spring is wonderful! And yes we took a picture of A fox but he was too sly and it didn't turn out. I guess you could say we couldn't get either foxs to sit still for the photo.
