Five on Friday!!

Happy Friday everybody!!! 
Hope everyone has a fun-filled weekend planned!  Here are my top five things from this week:
It's Spring Break!!!!

You'd think with that excitement that I'd be going on vacation!  But, I'm not.  I am, however, looking forward to playing outside and getting things done around the house.  Both inside and out!


The weather!!!!!!
We had a couple decent spring days here in Michigan this week.  They were oh so welcomed.  I was able to grill out two nights this week and play with the kids outside.  We even spotted a couple frogs in our little fish pond.  Talk about excitement!
The Hayes Homestead grew by eight this week.  That's right, we brought home eight baby chicks!
When we bought our house last summer we knew that we eventually wanted to raise chickens and, considering we go through 2-3 dozen eggs per week, we decided that we should do it now.  Keep an eye on the blog for a full post on these cute babies and progress on our chicken coop!

I got this beautiful new toy this week!
Not the fanciest of cameras, but definitely an upgrade.  Now, to figure out how to use it.....
(and, so what if the baby chicks are the only things I've taken pictures of yet.  The kids were napping when I opened it!  I swear!)
I am still loving my kitchen makeover.  Love love love how the red paint looks.  Wish it could just stay clean.  ::sigh::

Hope you're week has been wonderful too!  Any plans for the weekend?  Redmond and Ashlyn are anxiously awaiting for the Easter Bunny!
