And then there were four.

He's here!

His name is Zander to most of us, Peanut to Ainsley. She's still frustrated that that isn't on his birth certificate.

He was born at 1:30 am on Memorial Day - all of 8 lbs, 7 oz. He's beautiful and squishy and kissable.

We're all in love.

Lovely spring day.

And then ten more cold spring days.

It's been the cycle we've been going through this year.

See how happy I am about it?

We're still a family of five. I think this baby, smart as it is, is waiting until summer to join us.

When is the first day of summer?

Aw, crap.

On the good days, we're never inside.

Grayson has been declared Ainsley's 'cowboy hero'. He keeps the chickens away from her when we're in the garden.

That way she can eat her rhubarb in peace.

The girls didn't get any rhubarb last year because we'd just transplanted it. They aren't getting much this year, but it's more than none.

We did get lots of daffodils this year. We're finding bouquets everywhere, which I'm loving. This one has a signature Hannah note on it. The 'H' and 'D' on the top are to say it's from Hannah and it's for her Daddy. 'I love you'.

Bella keeps trying to figure out what I'm digging for when I pull out all of those dandelions.

My starts are doing well this year.

All except for my tray of basil that the cat tried to turn into a litter box. She's on my crap list right now. Pun intended.

And my kids? They just want to go camping.
