Thursday was the 30th. After a last barn check at dawn, I headed off to work. Kevin, suffering from some of those dreaded "flu like symptoms", went back to bed. Later, he texted me a couple of time during the day - the last being "Echo outside, Vinca inside, just laying around." I arrived home shortly after 4:30 - changed clothes and went to the barn and... there they were, fluffy and almost dry.
One buckling 11 lbs, one doeling 9 lbs. We are calling her Violet - officially she will be Flowers Ole Lake Violet, and he is Garrus (Kurt named him - something video game related).

|While I was milking this evening, the kids explored the general area of the barn - This is Violet checking out Roye|
|And Garrus, splints off now|
|This is Vinca's "I've had about enough of this" look...|
Spring is such a great time of year! Welcome back birds! The little plants in greenhouse are coming along and I'll be transplanting the little lettuces in the bed in there - probably next weekend. There is a lot to do out in the garden - things that should have been done last fall, but I am happy to see that the rhubarb did survive the excavation efforts of my hens.
So with that I will close. I hope to have more and better pictures of Vinca's kids next post, and maybe Echo's' too... but I have to confess I have no clue when she is due. Until next time (next week? in two weeks?) be well friends.
