A Weekend Of Joy And Sorrow

Over the weekend Hubby's brother, his wife and their 18 month old son came and stayed.  It was lovely to spend time with them and our nephew loved all the animals.
He is just learning to talk and while he can say dog he mostly calls dogs Ba.  So all weekend he was pointing at Jessie and saying Ba Ba and while he is very interested in her and spent all weekend following her and wanting to throw things for her, he is still a bit scared and if she gets to boisterous he likes to be picked up.

Where's Auntie Fee?

Hanging out with Uncle Randall
Then late Sunday we had this guy and his partner come for a visit.  They are very tame and if I had to guess  i'd say they get fed by different people around our area.

I gave them some chicken food and they pick through for all the sunflower seeds and leave the rest which I scoop back up and give to the chickens.  It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful they are.

But we do wish they would leave our banana alone.

But sadly this weekend we also lost Hubby's aunt unexpectedly.  She had been unwell for the past 6 weeks with a terrible flu and just could not get better.  She was rushed to hospital over the weekend and passed away at age 71, so very very young.  It made us even more grateful for the time spent with family over the weekend.

Have you spent quality time with your family recently?  When you do remember how special it is and make the most of it.
