Spring is Here!

The weather is warm, the wildflowers are blooming, and my baby just started giving me little taps. I am a happy girl! Oliver and I have been making the most of this glorious Spring weather. We went to visit the goat kids and lambs that were recently born at Rinconada Dairy. We haven't yet picked out our kids as there are many more to be born by the end of the season.

Here is a picture of Oliver being mauled by the lambs.

The lambs in this part of the barn had lost their mothers and loved to suck on everything. (Photo credit: Oliver)

Here are a few of the adorable goat babies. The two boys below had the most friendly personalities.

Oliver and I have also been fishing, taking pictures of flowers and hiking with Grammy. Life is great!

You may have wondered, "Where is Glenn?" "Has he been enjoying this lovely Spring weather as well?"

Glenn and Pop have been out in the front pasture for the past couple of months installing a fence, putting in a water trough, and building a shelter. Yes, it has been difficult, back-breaking work. But, I'm sure both men are thanking their lucky stars for getting to spend so much quality time together. How many men get to spend hours upon hours with their father-in-law? Just look at the loving look Glenn is giving my dad as they hammer at the shelter.

(It is possible Glenn was making that face because Pop just stole the hammer from him and said something like, "Get out of my way, boy.")

Thank you Glenn and Pop for all of your hard work. The alpacas (who are being delivered this Tuesday) will appreciate their new home!


  1. And where was Glenn when I had my storage building put up? Great pics and always, Jess. Glad you're all doing well. And happy SPRING!

  2. Thanks for the laugh! I enjoyed the "get out of my way, boy" part - yeah, that's the face for it!
    Your photos are fantastic and Oliver's getting really good with his camera. I'm impressed!

    I just love spring green - the color is so vibrant, almost unreal, like a cartoon. Life sure does look good for you and I'm so glad you're doing well, Jess.

    I think farm yard animals are just so adorable. (By the way: What are you doing living my life?)

    Kind regards,
    Doris :-)
