A Day on the Farm

For the first time since we moved to our new house, this was the first weekend during which the whole family was home for 2 days in a row. We spent the weekend working and playing in and out of the house and enjoying the early spring weather. What a treat!

The girls are leading us through the Oregon State pasture across the street from our house. There are two bulls who live in the next pasture. I think Penelope is making sure the bulls aren’t coming our way.

Apparently, there’s a herd of about 80 elk that meanders through the valley now and then.
