So...milking it!

A few days ago we were fortunate enough to join in with an outing to a local farm that follows organic principles and we had such a lovely time.
We were taught how to make our own ricotta cheese and butter.  Then we all got a chance at milking a cow and collecting some eggs from their hens.
The children had time to play together while we relaxed outside, had a few snacks and just enjoyed the outdoors.
And when we left we made sure to take some of their delicious products home with us.  I'm so please we were able to visit and learn a little more of what it is like to have animals on a farm and how to make some of the products we usually would only buy at a store.  I'm also very excited to have found a local supplier of raw milk!

So...marriage is like a picnic

 We were lucky enough to be invited to celebrate the anniversary of two people we love a lot who have loved each other a lot longer. 
We had a lovely long and lazy picnic at the botanical gardens, it was so nice none of us wanted to leave and we reluctantly trailed out of the gardens just ahead of the sunset. 

Congratulations and thank you for inviting us to share the day with you!

So...Easter happened

just the other day...
...so here are some snaps of the hunt.  The older two were moving so fast the camera was unable to focus properly on them (rather blame the equipment than my photography skills) , however the littlest was overtaken with awe of the shiny chocolate, and kept lovely and still.  He enjoyed his first easter egg immensely :)
