A thousand reasons to love life

This weekend was the perfect amount of hard work, laziness, and fun.

We woke up Saturday morning and scrubbed, dusted, mopped, straightened, and mowed.
Why is it that doing chores always sounds so dreadful?
It is never as bad as you think its going to be. 
and it sure is great when the house sparkles with a lemon scent afterwards!
Remind me of that next Saturday ok?

We train 'em young around here

Later on, we had some good eats as a family

there was lots of giggling and silly-ness involved 

We also met up with Jalene and Lincoln.
If Spring was a place, it would be here.

 the weather was perfect
a million yellow sunflowers blanketed the hill,
and baby chicks and ducks clucked around after their momma while we had a photoshoot.

our own little chick clucked a bit too

It is moments like this that remind me why life is so wonderful.

If you want to capture spring in a photo yourself call this talented girl!
You gotta hurry though, before the sunflowers start to wilt!
