Fun with the Valentines!

Our Friends Chris and Meagan Valentine came to visit us on the farm this week. It was great to have the extra help feeding our cows! (thanks guys) We took em around to see the sites- it was a ton of fun!

The Cattle Business


Yay! Ezra and I finally finished another semester at BYU I-da-ho.I have to say it was the hardest semester I've ever had and now it's over! woot woot! Anyway don't worry we haven't wasted anytime. We are back on the farm and we have nine baby calves. Don't let the word "baby" fool you- their strong little moo-ers! We had to teach them how to drink their bottles- sounds easy right. Not exactly- if you don't believe me- come visit us on the farm and try it out for yourself. Basically we pinch their heads between our knees and try to keep them still while he swap at the other calves to keep them from stealing bottles. Doing this morning and night every day has given Ezra and I quite the workout. In the end we're both covered in poop and slobber. Surprisingly.....I love it!
We have named each cow and we can even tell them all apart now......
"You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comit and Cupid and Doner and Blitzen, but do you recall the most famous reindeer of all.....Ruldolf the red nosed cow-oww!"
Anyway we're doing great and looking forward to having a wonderful summer!

Evil Squirrel

Okay, I am not making this up- If I would have let it this squirrel probably would have attacked me......

So I'm walking by this tree not really paying attention and when I look up this little guy is 6 inches from my face. I scream because I'm so startled. Instead of running away the squirrel advances toward me standing it's ground. It was so weird!

When Ez got home I showed him the squirrel he was just as shocked at the strange behavior. Must be rabies!
