The dogs at work found two babies. I will say they are GREAT even at this age at playing dead. Those poor dogs were so confused. Note to self next time you see one, just to make sure grab a shovel and whack! These two got away, grrr!!

Playing opossum?

Ava asks every morning where they went she liked them.

E.B. Egg time

Backyard repair

Spring is the time for change, in our case finding our backyard. The dogs wore a path in the back yard and now the grass is gone and dirt = mud. So we are going to change things a little.

Josh rototilled part of the yard and the girls helped move the dirt. Ava thought the wagon would work better for her.

And in the front yard our cat playing dead

Boy she looks she's eaten one to many rodents Ava working the dirt
