Freaky Friday

Found this huge black snake skin in the Mae Yard the other day....looks to be six feet long! and fairly big around too.  We had both been right through this area a couple times not long before I found this so we barely missed the snake itself. The skin was still moist!

creepy eye sockets!

took this picture the next day of it's open mouth. I know black snakes are the farmer's friend...just hope I don't come across it...this was a big snake!

Sunday near Hayden


 We took a drive on Sunday out towards Hayden.  We came across an area with a high fence and some non-native animals!  Pretty neat!


Elk in Maries County!

Oops!  ran out of county road here!
We had a nice time....good day for a drive!

Wordless Wednesday

Day with the Kids

We took care of the three youngest kids for a good part of Friday so Sarah could go with Tyler on his field trip! We had a really good day! Not one fuss or fight of any kind. Here they are playing with the Fisher-Price Little People that our girls had....Sarah has a few at her house too. They enjoyed these a lot.  










Sure was a fun day and glad we were able to spend some extra time with them!

Charlotte's Friday Night

Charlotte was very busy last night! She made her third egg sack! I didn't see it (or her) at first, but then I spotted them in the zinnia plants!

She is working so hard securing it safely.


She is still out there working on it....I will take  a picture when she gets done.  Only thing is, I will pull these plants after the first frost....but, I will take the handful this is in and arrange them somewhere so it will hopefully survive the Winter and they can hatch out next Spring.


I am thinking this will be Charlotte's last egg sack....it's number three, so she has worked hard.  I have sure enjoyed watching her..and when Sarah stopped by this morning with the kids they were excited to see it...

I will miss going out to check on her, hopefully next year I will be able to located another one to watch!
