Spring is coming !

This was one day last week - as you can see, the snow is melting FAST !  Thatcher thought he'd try out the scooter on the dry patches. 
And give Lucky a belly rub - Lucky LOVES it, and practically rolls over whenever he sees Thatcher. 
A quick haircut/neck shave before a run.
Yup - he's started up running again, and Treyson and Tagg are going with him. 
Thatcher likes my phone camera...........
He loves to take selfies................
....and then he leaves it in selfie mode, and I'm totally startled as I go to take a picture, and there is by big face !!!
We were running out of hay for the goats, so Roger had to buy some from a guy in Layton.  He and Zac and the boys went down early last Saturday morning to pick it up, then they came back, and ......
Landon came up to help unload and restack.  He (Landon) tried to show Treyson the finer points of throwing they hay bales. 
Landon would throw them over the fence, and Zac and CJ would carry them in the barn, and Roger would stack. 
It was a family affair, and the boys helped where they could.   I made them stand for the requisite picture when they were done. 
Later in the day we went over to the Property.  I wanted to see how it had faired during the winter.  We walked down, and Tagg and Thatcher walked along on top of the snow.  It was still hard enough that they didn't break through. 
The creek was still frozen over, although not hard enough that you would want to walk on it.  
Near the edges there was a little water, and the boys had a fun time poking holes with sticks. 
On the way back to Grandpa and Grandma D's, they caught a ride on the Ranger with Zac, CJ and Grandpa D.  Me and Grandma D walked back up, getting our exercise ;)
More selfies..........
I got my Quilt Kit in the mail.
It may take me YEARS to complete.  If I do a block a month, it will take me 2 YEARS.
I'm pretty intimidated.  I can't even understand the instructions !?!?!?!
Saturday evening we watched Payson and Brightyn, and Krois and Harper.  We had breakfast for dinner.  Here they are stirring up the pancake batter. 
Cheese !!  Such cute kids.  They were so good !
The only sadness of the evening is when Grandpa Roger took away the spoon that Brightyn was trying to "eat" her chocolate milk with.   She wasn't happy - poor thing :)
