Trying to get a picture of these 2 girls on Easter morning did not go well! Typically Nyla has no desire to cooperate with what we want her to do, and Easter was no exception. ;)
Spring is a perfect time to celebrate Easter - the change in weather, flowers blooming, new life appearing all around us - a great time to celebrate the new and everlasting life God has given us.
This new little life was born 2 weeks ago at the exceptionally small size of 25-30 pounds (most newborn baby calves weigh 80-90 pounds). Nyla named this special baby calf, Strawberry.
Strawberry is bottle fed due to the fact that he couldn't reach to nurse and and was not strong enough to suck effectively. His spine curves in multiple directions, but he doesn't know the difference.
The weekend included lots of family fun and outdoor activities...
Easter egg hunt at my parent's church
More egg hunting in the front yard
About to get goosed
I think Strawberry might be getting a lecture about getting too close to the Easter baskets.
Fun with Daddy
Grandma Earlene and her sister, Shirley - Hopefully someday Hazel and Nyla will get to be this age together, and get to sit and chat like this.
