sock puppet show

This is Fred!
Chloe is really into putting on puppet shows. She writes the scripts full of jokes and her sweet humor. She puts on two shows a week. One at the end of our bed and one in her playroom.

chicken coop

The frame is made out of old ikea bed slats, scrap wood around the house and flooring from the old landing. We made the front of the coop out of an old window.
the sides are constructed out of 4 salvaged picket fences
and of course a little help from mae...
and voila! All it needs now is a roof and chicken wire! Then the little chicks can move in!

cherry picking

We went cherry picking in leona valley this weekend. It was fun even in the 93 degrees heat! We learned that when you pick the fruit, you leave the stem on the tree so fruit will grow again the next year. By the end of our picking we had picked 9lbs of cherries totaling $27. Now what to do with all of those cherries... maybe some jam!
