CHICKS, man!

After months of discussing and researching (and some begging by Esther), we got us a couple of chicks yesterday. We found a coop (below) on Craigslist and plan to build on a chicken tractor for roaming. They will be free range once they are big enough.

Esther just loves the little cuties.
The one on the left is Eleanor and Georgie is on the right.
We will keep you posted as the little ones grow, make their move outside, and eventually start laying eggs. Peep, peep!

Stone Mountain

Esther has been begging for us to take her to Stone Mountain for a good year. I'm not sure what took us so long, but we finally got there last week (Ben's spring break). She made it to the top of the mountain with very little help from us. She had to climb and hop over every large boulder there was. And don't forget checking for fairies...

Ben was never two paces behind her - so nervous she was going to bust it.
Pretty windy up there!

Going to Stone Mtn brings back fond memories for us. Ben and I both spent much of our childhood around there. We also had the majority of our dates at the park once we met - lots of hikes through the surrounding woods, frisbee throwing, swimming in the lake, and laying under the trees on the lawn. As our 7 year anniversary is tomorrow, it seems a good time to reminisce :)

Hakuna Matata

I recently discovered I hadn't uploaded a bunch of movies from the last few months. Here is one of my favorites. I'm pretty sure this is when Ben had his appendectomy. Esther had him covered in her blanket and was reading to him - don't want him to get bored, you know. I think some of the words are made up or what she calls 'spanish', but otherwise, you can follow here storyline pretty well. So sweet, that girl!
