Leeks and Flat Stanley (Levi)

I never put  up pictures of last Sunday, which was union meeting at Mom and Dad's. 

Talking as we left for picking leeks

For whatever reason, Hoyt liked walking around with his tummy out.

Calving season is in full swing, so lots of calves around. 

Aren't they cute?

My nephew Levi had made a Flat Stanley and sent him to us. Flat Stanley is a book. Apparently Stanley somehow becomes flat and travels the world in an envelope. And you send back Flat Stanley, as well as pictures of Flat Stanley doing typical things where you live. This is a blurry Flat Stanley and some calves.

The woods were not leafy yet. Very stark looking. And this calf had just been born a few hours earlier.

The white trillium had just started to blossom, but the red trillium were well ahead.

Elsie was very good friends with Coyote, talking to him and following him around.

Haha! Love all the flat Stanley pictures. Willow did a flat Stanley. He went to some cool places in Europe, then got lost and never made it back. Willow was quite sad. Actually , now that I think about it, Greydon did one too. We were more conservative with where he went, and we may still have him somewhere!
