Welcoming September With A Weekend of Fun

We had a perfectly perfect holiday weekend.
A weekend with no plans quickly morphed into one chock-full of fun.

The cool, autumn-like weather of the preceding week was quickly replaced
by the return of hot, humid summer days.

Just a quick note about vaccination day on Friday.
The pigs didn't were in rare form and caused quite a ruckus while getting their injections.
They did not make me proud at all!
Thankfully it was all over quickly.

And the sheep did not allow us to catch them.
We'll have to sneak up on them in the next few mornings in order to vaccinate them.

We spent our weekend with a good mix of farm chores and family fun.

Saturday was freedom day for the young hens that we raised from just-hatched chicks.
The door to the chicken yard was opened...

and within a few minutes, the first of the teenagers emerged.

Getting them back in that evening was a little challenging... but Hubbs succeeded.

I did a little cheese-making Saturday morning... queso blanco (queso fresca)...
(this cheese is super simple and quite tasty)

which we used on top of homemade carnitas tacos...

I also baked these Lime/Coconut cupcakes....delicious!

Hubbs and I had a "date" on Saturday evening and had an early dinner out...
