Aaron, Leslie and Trish feeding the ducks.
Kris, Kraig and Mark out for a walk.
Mark feeding the goats.
I took several pictures of this emu, and he finally surprised me with a yawn. I thought he was about to take a bite out of me!
After feeding the animals, we came back for a few fun games of bingo.
We also had a balloon release in memory of the many children we have lost.

Here's Farmer Mark with his tractor.
Here's Farmer Alice with Mark's tractor.
Here's the field that Farmer Alice mowed with Mark's tractor last weekend. I made Mark trim up close around the trees, since they were an expensive purchase last fall and I didn't want to mow them down! These pictures are taken close to the site where we plan to build the log home in a few years.
Lucy is the younger Australian cattle dog. Lucy will one day be a very good dog, but she is still in her rebellious teenager years!
We took the tractor out and worked for a little while, but it was too hot this past weekend to accomplish much. After an hour or so we quickly retreated to the lake for a swim.
Gus loves to swim and will fetch in the water for hours.
Lucy is learning how to swim and hasn't quite decided if she likes it or not!
Riley also got a swimming lesson this past weekend. She's learning to dog paddle. Riley loves to be in the water.
