We went back to visit our families in Indiana over Labor Day weekend, and I thought I'd share pictures from my in-laws house. They have a hobby farm, lots of vegetables, an orchard, and chickens. Oh chickens. Sometimes I have romantic ideas about having my own hobby farms complete with chickens running around the backyard. And then I visit my in-laws and remember just how gross chickens can be. These pictures will not convey the grossness. You will just find them more romantic probably. And they kind of can be, but only if you can leave them to someone else to clean up. I do have to say that the chicks were pretty cute. I'll give those dirty birds that much. They make cute chicks.
The littles really love seeing the chickens, the tractors, and their cousins. Brian really loves playing in his dad's woodshop. And I love taking home bushels of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and apples.
