One of our new family favorites.....

Our new "cabin"

We went to go visit our good buddies, the Holmans, a few weeks ago in Bellingham. They just purchased this amazing home on gorgeous property, and we had an absolute blast! We joke around that we now have a second home to go to in Bellingham whenever we feel like it....our own special "cabin"! :)\
This home that they purchased is truly beautiful. They own some acreage and the whole atmosphere is completely serene and calm. It really was like a vacation! We didn't do much, just hung out with our buddies, fed some chickens, played with the donkey and goats, and skated across the ice filled pond. Our whole family had so much fun!
 While we were there, our buddies went over to a friends house to pick up some chickens for their coup. It would seem a simple thing, just going to pick up a few chickens and bring them to a new turned out to be quite a little adventure for all of us! It was quite the scene, four adults chasing chickens all over their friends' property like crazy people! It was pretty hilarious actually!!!
Their friend also had a parrot that he brought out to show the kids. He asked if anyone would like to hold it, and all of the kiddos shy'ed away right away. Well, all except Emery. This girl is fearless! She just held her arm out there like she was a pro!!

The pond on their property was completely frozen over, so all of the kids went out and skated for the longest time. It was truly freezing out there, but they didn't care! They just kept going back and forth, back and forth, having so much fun!!

 I love how the Holman's kids and ours just pick up right where they left off, even if they haven't seen each other in a long time! It took them all of about 1 minute to get re-acquainted and then off they went! It was so much fun seeing them together!!!!!!!
Thank you so much Holman family! We absolutely LOVED having a mini-vaca with all of you!!!! We are so grateful for the time we were able to spend at your amazing house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
