A Revealing Weekend

The suspense leading up to the big reveal party on Saturday
was almost more than I could stand.
I have so loved these past almost five years being Grammie to Tyler...
and am so excited to have another grand baby to love!

In preparation, I shopped for adorable baby items, 

baked and decorated these...


and made this with Amanda's help...


What a chubby little baby!


Andy and Ashley graciously hosted both of their large families for an afternoon party
to reveal the gender of their baby due in August.
The weather cooperated, and the party spilled out onto the back deck.


We patiently waited for the big moment...


It's a girl!!!

Oh, what fun it will be to have a granddaughter...
oh, the sewing and knitting I can do!


Thanks to Andy and Ashley for hosting this wonderfully fun party 
and sharing their good news with all of us!


Sunday brought us another beautiful sunny day
and gave us a chance to spend some time with the animals.
We played ball with the dogs and the pigs.


Ginger learned how to pick up the tennis ball and carry it around.


No matter how hard she tried,
MaryAnn just could not fit that ball in her mouth.


She tried and tried....
to no avail.


The afternoon was warm enough for me to open our beehives and feed the bees.


With the cold weather finally behind us, I was able to finally remove the black tar paper
from the hives.


Happily, the bees were buzzing all around as I tended to their hive.


I'm sure they are just as happy that Spring has arrived
as I am!

Last, but certainly not least...
I have two pictures of our new lambkins....



Babies, babies everywhere!
