Chickens, Dogs and Ducks...Oh My!

We took a trip out to visit my mother-in-law this past weekend. She lives out in the country with land all around. She has chickens, dogs and ducks. The chickens are in pens and coops. She has laying hens and a type of chicken called a Silky. These are white and look like fur instead of feathers. She also has peacocks, but they were playing shy.

My 2 year old had the time of his life! He rolled around on the dogs, climbed into the chicken pen, and chased the poor ducks all day long! He was worn out-a dirty, stinky mess-when it was time to go home. I've never seen him so active and so happy and so tired.

Of course, we didn't have the camera or the video camera, so no pictures this time. Bummer....

Today, he received a new book in the mail. The book was all about farm animals. On the first pages, there were pictures of a rooster followed by a bunch of chickens. We read the book and I made my best chicken clucking sounds. He walked around clucking for a little while. It was so cute!

Things like this always happen. I'm sure many people dismiss them, but the book in the mail about farm animals just a day after a trip to a mini-farm? Priceless. God is in ALL the details!
