Drizzly Day

Today is Ben's 22nd birthday!  Happy Birthday Ben!

And to make the day special for him, Emily made him a delicious cake from scratch.

It was yummy and the frosting was divine!

It was a little drizzly today and I didn't really want to go outside to work, but that new row isn't going to build itself, so out I went.  Carolyn joined me and we pick axed 2 more loads of refuse.

 Success!  Another big rock dug out!

I keep trying to back up the 4-whieeler and trailer to unload, but each time I get jammed up further and further away from the edge!  Since it is a bit wet out I also got the trailer stuck.  Oh well.

Make sure to check out the duck log...a couple of new baby ducklings made their appearance today!
