Yes, chicks--four "assorted bantam chickens." We were attracted to the "fancy hair" on three of them and the smallness of the third. I'm a little worried about the assorted part--with our luck they are roosters. We'll see.
Notice that the little one gave Sadie a "present" this morning. (It was quite comical.) I'm pretty sure saying, "Sure, Daddy won't care." Gives me some more points for Mother Of the Year.
UPDATE: The gray one, Chloe, passed away last night. The other three seem to be doing well--they are developing nice wing feathers.
After supper the kids and I made cakes for our cake ball project. I didn't get any pictures of the girls making theirs. (sorry girls)

So, we took the kids to the picnic area at Washington on the Brazos (the birthplace of Texas) and played for a while. We didn't attempt the historic part of it (we know our limits), but did point out the Brazos River--chocolate milk according to T.S.
After surviving the gravel-throwing-unattended kids at the playground, we set off to take pictures in the bluebonnets. Sadie was promptly bitten by fire ants.
(Part 2 of Day 2 to follow--it ended up being quite an adventure-filled day)

You are welcome (again) for not posting all of the identical pictures of the field of flowers. And, no comments on how haggard we look--remember 4 kids +1 car+no tour+mean playground kids (not sure what it equals, but I think Jen and I handled it well--we are smiling after all and we did get home with all 4 kids.)
Mom, I have a scarf on my head.
Me: A what?
You know a scarf. I scratched my head. See?
Shows forehead. Me: Oh yeah, a scratch. We'll have to put something on that or it will be a scar.
No, even Harry Potter has a scarf.
I'm guessing that a "scarf" is somewhat like a badge of honor. I asked to photograph it, but surprisingly he said no.
I took the following pictures Tuesday, but I just wanted to give you an idea of what we were dealing with all week--4 cousins and all I wanted was 1 good picture. This series kind of summed up the week for me--lots of fun and kind of crazy. Notice the footwear or lack thereof--this will be a recurring theme the rest of the week. You can click on the pictures to make them larger and get a better view of the facial expressions.
