Summer in the burbs

Wow - it's been one crazy summer here. Between work, family, and the animals..I've been busy. It's been way too hot for Maryland this year and I'm seriously considering moving to a higher elevation in the
I've missed being on here posting and I need to get back in the swing of things. The kids have one month of summer vacation left and the heat is making it hard to enjoy. I can not wait until Fall.
I did go out and get 4 more chickens and they are soooo cute. I got 2 Welsummers, a Buff Orpington, and a Cute little Silkie! They are in my room in their brooder now, peeping and playing. I just love baby chicks :)
This summer my hubby and I decided it was time to expand our backyard, so it's been a slow, hot process. We're making headway though and by the Spring of next year - we should have a HUGE yard for the kids and animals! I am definitely getting a hammock to relax in. That will be my gift to myself for all the hard work :)
Anyway, I'm off to make dinner, but I'll try to keep up with my blog. No promises since summer is always hectic for me, but I'll do my best!
