It’s been really quiet on the blog. The long, dark and cold winter put me in a photography rut. But spring is here and we can finally go outside again. The chickens are enjoying it just as much as the kids. And I enjoy capturing our “real” life – messy yard, kids with torn pants and paint stains and most likely chicken poop. I was just trying to take a few photos of the kids hanging with the chickens dust bathing. It was their idea to do a little shoot with Goldie, the only chicken that likes to be picked up.
