“Grandpa, do you live in a zoo?”

Hurricane Thomas and Hurricane James spun through last week along with their parents and their dog, Tiny. Thomas tallied up all the animals he saw and seemed to compare it favorably with the Central Park Zoo.

Thomas was quite the helper in the chicken yard. He tuned into the rhythm of chicken-keeping, dutifully remembering when it was time to let the chickens out in the morning and bring them in at night. And he enjoyed the daily egg hunt, as well.

That's not a chicken!

We picked oranges and made fresh-squeezed juice

So relaxing with kids, isn't it?

Love the new sign!

The amazing Grandpa!

The family had an early flight on Easter Sunday so they left dark and early. Since we were up and wide-awake, the CE and I decided to go to an Easter sunrise service, which we enjoyed so much it may become a tradition. What a privilege to stand with the sea behind us, the moutains before us and worship our God above us. He is risen indeed!

The moon was setting over the ocean as we arrived

The sky cleared to a beautiful Easter morning

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

    Thanks for having us!!!!! I am SURE you are eager to have us return.
    There aren’t enough cups of coffee and vacuums in the world, are there?

    Yes Thomas, as a matter of fact, we DO live in a zoo. All we are missing is the pair of orangutans and red-butted monkeys. Fortunately, the Chicken Lady cannot obtain these due to zoning and sanitation reasons; otherwise, you could see them here also. Did we mention that the flea circus is now in rehearsal, with twice a day performances scheduled on Sohos belly?
