Building the Run

The first completed wall...
Keith after all the walls have been put up and connected checking to make sure it is level. Double click on the picture and check out those awesome triceps.

The human door to the run and my finger.

Miss Piggy checking out everything.

The frame work on the run is complete. We just need some wire, older chickens and a roof and it will be finished.

Chicken -n- Dumplings

My sister was coming home so we decided to have a nice family dinner. Keith and I made chicken -n- dumplings. They were so good and I burnt my tounge really bad because I could not stop sipping the flavorful juices. Anyway here are some pictures of the process and also a picture of some flowers that my Grandma received as a gift for her birthday last year. She got them potted and then decided to plant them by her front door and ta da they bloomed and are very pretty.
