Summer Fun Part 4

Here are a few more things that have been keeping us very busy this summer.......

Rub a dub dub...three chickens in a tub!! We butchered our first batch of meat chickens....thanks to Nathan & Christa Miller who spent the with us showing us how it's done! 14 birds in 3 hours start to clean up...not bad!! Next time will be faster because we can keep them all as whole chickens and put them in freezer bag!
I completed this quilt top a could weeks ago. It will either be Zach's or Caleb's we haven't decided yet. One will get this quilt and the other will get a quilt with X's on it. (Once I actually start on it that is!) This was my first time to machine applique, and I was happy with the results.

NEXT: We head to the zoo last week so squeeze one more trip in before our membership expired July 1st.....ohhhh what fun we had!
First stop was the sea lion feeding/chat.
No matter how many times you see them this close they are still amazing
We listened to several chats and then headed for a picnic lunch.
I let the kids ride is Caleb!
Zach was so stinkin' cute to watch!
 Julia's pony kept trotting around instead of walking...she thought it was great and giggled the whole time! Then a helper had to walk beside her the rest of the!
Then we went to the aviary chat and then everyone posed on the frog.
Lance apparently confused this frog with the horses we rode earlier :)
One of our last stops of the day was the aquarium.
We listened to this diver talk about cleaning the tank and she told us about some of the fish swimming around.
Here are a few other animals we saw that day....
Coming up VERY SOON is the county fair! Yet another thing on the schedule to keep our summer hopping!!
