Emma and her daddy at a little waterfall in one of the state parks. I thought they went to Turkey Run...but I am not sure. Liz got this picture of them but wasn't in any herself. :(
This is in Liz and Matt's yard. The chicken run free in the daytime and get locked up at night.
This is a pretty red hen. They eat bugs out of the yard.
If one chicken finds something, they all seem to come running to share whatever in on the meal.
Max and Luke watching the chickens come to the front door. Luke gets excite to see them.
These are some of the sunsets, before our rains came this weekend. The sun was a fiery ball here.
This sunset had lots of pastel colors. The lightening bugs come out about this time too. So peaceful. Hope all of you had a great weekend. We did indeed get lots of rain. It rain and misted almost the entire day Saturday. We needed all that rain.
All the talk of school starting soon...doesn't seem right. Kids are not getting a full summer out of school. Wishing all of you a great new week ahead. XO
Hi Susie...I would love to have chickens but in Baltimore county you need an acre and we are just under that. Great that the children are able to have this experience.ReplyDelete
Pat, I am amazed at the homes that I see chickens running around outside. Not in town though. But when we were kids, my neighbors had chickens in coops. and they just had a city lot. :):) The little ones love watching them. I think Luke thinks they are pets. Blessings, xoxo, susieDelete
Oh, I love all your pictures! You captured Summer so beautifully. The children standing at the door watching the chickens is precious...priceless! Every day life is filled with sweet moments and memories!ReplyDelete
Hi Honey, Haven't heard from you for s long time and to be honest...I don't think I have been to your site either. I do love seeing children looking out doors and windows. Since the boys see the chickens , I know what they must be thinking....but most time, I wonder , "What does a baby or toddler think when they are looking out"...just always makes me wonder. LOL Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
those chickens are wonderful entertainment, Emma and her Dad at the waterfalls is a beautiful photo!! I'm glad you got some rain too!ReplyDelete
Laurie, Our state needed rain so much. I hope everyone got a bit of it. Our lawn should be shaping up soon. Ted has even put off mowing because it was so dry. I am so glad that Emma and her parents had a wee adventure...what with school starting soon. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
We were just talking about school starting for our grandkids. Still seems like summer but they will start back soon! Love your photos!ReplyDelete
Thank you Diane. I am glad Emma and her parents had some hiking in the park. I like for her to be connected to nature . That is one of the reasons I love seeing the chickens running around , so the great grands get to see them . Blessings to you, enjoy your week. xoxo, SusieDelete
Max and Luke are so cute looking at the hens! And I agree with you wholeheartedly, Susie, it's not right that kids don't get a full summer's worth of vacation.ReplyDelete
We've had gentle rains all weekend too, and it's so welcome!
Dewena, We needed our rain too. At last our lawn is greening up from the previous rain we had on Monday of last week. Ted will have to mow soon. We put it off since the lawn was crispy. LOL. There's something about little ones looking out windows and doors that tugs at my heart. My daughter, who teaches, and I need a day together before school starts...seems we are having less and less one on one days...because time flies by so quickly. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Great pictures, Susie. I can't believe how big the boys are getting. Seems like they were just babies yesterday.ReplyDelete
That park is just gorgeous!!! We always had chickens roaming free at the farm, too, that got locked up at night. Love to you- xo Diana
Diana, Too many coyotes for chickens these days. LOL Of course hawks get them every now and then. Luke is walking ! makes me know that my time goes by way too quickly. Max is a good big brother to him since he was born. Lynzie quit her job of nursing to spend this valuable time with the boy, before they are of school age. I was glad she and Mark decided to do this. I love when Matt takes Emma and Liz on a hiking trip. Our schools start around here next month, the first week !! Not like the good old days when we had all of June, July, and August out for summer break. Blessings to all of you, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
That picture at the waterfall is gorgeous! We are getting rain every day this week. We need it but I wish there could be some kind of a break so I can get out to the yard to do some weeding. Being in the city we are not allowed to have chickens. If we could, I would have a couple just for the eggs.ReplyDelete
Kathy, I liked that waterfall photo also. I like for the kids to get Emma back to nature...but I can see her phone in her hand in the photo. LOL. Chickens are fun to watch. It's amazing what a racket they can make too. I just got back inside from pulling weeds and trimming some things back. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Brings back fun memories of helping grandma with her chickens when I was very young. It is a busy week with getting ready for school on the 25th here. Kids seem ready to go back though. Loved your pretty photos.ReplyDelete
Karen, When I was a kid, the neighbors had a big rooster and he would chase us if we got in their yard. So mean. LOL. I think it's good for kids to know where they can get eggs in their own yard. :) Oh my goodness, that is very early. Savannah and Emma go back the 6th of August. I think my daughter will be going back a day or two later. So sad for the young kids. I always loved having the entire summer off. :) Blessings to you friend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi Susie, love these fun chicken pictures! And i love ANY WATERFALL pictures! Love to see those. so glad you enjoyed the post about the old plantation, so neat you've been there too!! I love it there. Hope your weekend was nice, it sure rained alot here!ReplyDelete
Debbi, We had a whole day of rain and then two days of on again off again rains. Our lawn still has dry spots. LOL Oh yes, I love the plantations there in Charleston area. That is just a totally beautiful place. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Those chickens reminds me of my mother's She always had them running around. Love all the pics. Love and Hugs.ReplyDelete
Thank you Susie. I like seeing those chickens and Luke gets very excited with them so close to the porch.LOL. Lizzy gets their eggs from her chickens and give eggs to others also. They got rid of the big mean rooster and have a new one..he's not as big . :):) Blessings to you, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
Love the chicks! You are having a wonderful summer, I can tell!ReplyDelete
Jeanie, Family time is the best part of my life...so seeing the little fellows makes me happy. The chickens were an added bonus of fun to watch. LOL Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Love the picture of the kids watching the chickens :) too cute. We were dry here but no more. It's raining inches and inches....and flooding some places. And still raining =0ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day!
Oh please be safe Doris. I worry about flooding when the rains keep coming and never move along. We had enough rain to get the grass growing again. But those brown spots in the lawn look awful. Blessings to all of you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Cute kids..I'm sure they love the chickens..Lots of rain here!! Flooding too..ReplyDelete
Missy, I hope you do not get flooding. We were lucky enough to rain for the crops and lawns and it's let up for today. Our children are all off on a vacation now. Hope to snuggle them when they return. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Where do you chickens go for vacation???Delete
Missy, I think Brock comes by to tend the chickens. I do not think they run free while Liz is away. LOL. She loves those chickens. I always wondered why chickens never ran away. Someone told me they know where their roosts and their food supplies are. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Max and Luke look so cute looking at the chickens! Glad you all are enjoying Summer!ReplyDelete
Pilar, You've been in my thoughts and prayers. Hope things are looking up for you honey. I love seeing the children looking out windows and doors...but it tugs at my heart. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Lovely summer post, Susie! We are enjoying eggs from my daughter's chickens, too!ReplyDelete
Linda, Our children give the eggs to family and friends also. That is nice to share. I love how excited Luke gets when the chickens scamper around. LOL. So cute. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful photos. I agree about school, sports have already started here in Wisconsin.ReplyDelete
Carla, Hearing of schools in our area starting soon ...then the talk of metal detectors for school..it makes my heart heavy. I remember when we worried if we got into trouble in school, our parents would find out about it. Then we'd be in real trouble. LOL Prayers for all our children. Blessings to you honey, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'm so glad I found your blog Susie. Love all the photos of your family, sunset and chickens. So cute how the two little ones are watching from the door. Have a day of blessings ahead.ReplyDelete
Thank you Toni. I hope we can visit each other more. I love family time , and enjoy sharing my fun. Aren't chickens fun to watch too. I had a little red hen when I was about 9 years old...it last long enough to grow up and be a Sunday dinner . LOL Hunger always won over pet chickens. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Thanks for taking me back in time.I can relate to all you shared. I was born and raised a country girl. My favorite things were gathering the eggs and going to the mail box. I had to work and help my dad in the fields as soon as I was big enough.ReplyDelete
I remember when country kids worked hard along side their parents. Even us city kids had plenty of chores..to stay out of trouble. LOL My daughter Liz just loves having the chickens around and of course gathering eggs everyday. Her twin sister lives across the road from and uncle who has chickens and he gives them eggs too. It's a sharing thing with chickens. LOL Hope you are doing well this summer and please stay cool. It wears me out this heat. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
The waterfall picture is breathtaking!!!ReplyDelete
But the chickens at the door is my favorite. :)
Such pretty pictures! I especially love the chickens - after the ones of the boys, of course! I remember when your Emma was little....how fast time goes and how quickly they grow!ReplyDelete
