Here is a little more info on our new chicks...
Pearl is what is called a White Silkie, this is what she will look like when she is full grown.

Too cute huh? She is also a Bamtam chicken. Which means full grown, she will only be about 1/2 the size of a regular chicken. The same is true for Hattie. Although her breed is a Blue Cochin.

Both were gotten for fun! There is nothing like little chicks for Easter:) Wish us luck and hopefully no illnesses this time. Let's just say we learned the hard way!

Just a little update...

A little update on the chickens...We are now getting about 3 eggs a day from our girls! Enough that we get to eat eggs whenever we want, bake whatever I want and I still don't have to buy eggs! They are wonderful little companions when we are out in the garden and great little workers at tilling our beds! We have starting planting in our beds now though, so they don't get to go in the garden anymore. To make up for it, we let them out in the yard last week. The LOVED it. So much to scratch and get into. Here I found them huddled together pecking at the dirt for bugs. our new little additions...Pearl

and Hattie...

Just a little fun for the Spring. We missed having chicks, so we got two more:) Just a little city farm around here...Happy Saturday!
Last week Jason and I celebrated out 7th anniversary. We decided to take the girls on a 6 day boat trip to celebrate. You know you are married with kids when you take them on your anniversary trip:)

Outside of the fact that Payton hates to sleep ANYWHERE but home, we had a great trip. We went to Bremerton for 2 days and were lucky enough to see the USS Nimitz come into port our last morning! Jason was like a kid in a candy store.

The next day we were going from Bremerton to Blake Island and we came across a grey whale. It was my turn to be excited! Of all the boat trips we have taken, this was the 1st time we saw whales. We cut the engines and just watched for a while. It was quite amazing. (I didn't even dare to try and take pictures, just enjoyed).

We also had beautiful sunshine 5 of the six days with only a little drizzle and wind the other day. Talk about luck in western Wa in March:).

It was a great trip to wrap our 6th year!

I just heard about this Great website! Picnik. It is a free photo editing website. My camera does not take the best photos (as you have seen in my earlier posts:)), and I can't currently afford the camera that I want. So this works wonderfully in the meantime. Just thought I would share it with you guys. Enjoy!!!

and After...
