Ryan and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on the 5th by doing more pond clean up.  We did have a nice kid free night out too, thanks to my mother in law!  This week was pretty busy, with our jobs so we didn’t get much else accomplished, other then mowing 8 of the 14.33 acres and starting to clean up a landscaping stone graveyard.  Saturday was way too hot to even work outside, so we spent the day with family at the pool.  We ended the weekend with some more pond clean up.  Just taking it a section at a time, but boy does each section we clean up make the pond area look amazing!

Aubrey had gotten stung by a bee about 10 minutes before this picture was taken!  Thankfully, she is NOT allergic.

Only way to clean up.  We burned for 6 hours, and still have about another 2 days to go.  Behind the fire pit is a huge mound of stuff to burn.

We are now 30 days out from the arrival of our turkeys and 37 days out from the next round of baby chicks!  Lots of excitement coming up in the next month!!
