A Few Days Away

We've been at the Pilkerton abode for the last few days housesitting and duck/chickensitting. We came up on Tuesday night and will be heading home some time today. It has been nice to be away from the normal every day routine of being home, that lately has consisted of cleaning, purging, dump and Goodwill runs. The kiddos have been able to swim, I have been able to nap and Rick was able to get some schoolwork finished. We also celebrated Noah's 7th birthday and had dinner at Cracker Barrel. But, not on his birthday. No, on his birthday Noah wanted Costco's pizza for dinner =)

I have also done something while we've been here that I never expected to do - I picked up a chicken, more than once even. Yeah, it has been good to get away and do somethings a little different.
