Evie and Viv in Chickenland

Once upon a time, two beautiful princesses, their mother, the Queen of Let’s-Move-Across-the-Country and their little dog, Buster, traveled from far, far away in Orange County by way of Connecticut to visit the magical Chicken Kingdom.

Viv brought her appropriately-titled bedtime story: "Chickens to the Rescue"

Buster arrives in royal style

They were a bit surprised when they were shown to their chambers and found that they were staying in the rooms formerly occupied by the Princes of Poultry.

“Hey Viv, I got the hand grenade room!”

Taylor's door still bears the traces of teen angst

We did try to girlify things up a bit for them.

I'll bet Taylor never expected to find Pink-alicious propped up on his pillows!

Chloe gave the princesses a royal welcome.

"My, what big EVERYTHING you have!"

The girls were a bit shy around the chickens at first.

"Are you sure they don't bite?"

But it didn’t take long for them to get comfortable.

And all this time, Luna thought she was the only princess in the chickenyard!

And by the time the sun went down on the magical chicken kingdom last night, Princess Evie had become the Chicken Whisperer. We were all surprised when she hoisted Hope into her arms, and even more surprised when Hope let herself be held without flapping or complaining.

"Let's be friends"

A big helping of Hope.

Just another day in the Kingdom of Chickens…

    It has been a great pleasure to watch the little ones interact with the birds and find work to do in the chicken yard. Can anyone really doubt the value of animals in a child’s development?

    Wow – Taylor’s door is NOT anything I would have expected to see at your elegant house. But now that I think about it, and what I’ve seen you allow your animals to do, I can believe you’d let your son trash his door. VERY tolerant are you. And nice to see you tailored the Taylor room to be pretty-in-pink for the visiting Princesses.

    Mostly I’m glad to see that even a horrifying toothbrush incident can’t mar Viv’s beauty or wipe the smile off her face.

    It’s a good thing Buster showed up because I think the chickens were starting to out-number the 4-legged creatures and we can’t have that.

    Hope has apparently decided that youngsters of the human kind are more interesting and far less annoying than her those of her own variety. (Plus they hand out chicken candy!)

    The blog entry was worth the wait – all those smiling, happy, beautiful faces! (And I’m not talking about the chickens – well, them too.)

    Thank you for such a wonderful weekend in chickenland!! We really enjoyed hanging out with the chicks and all the other animals who get to reside here in your animal haven. Evie especially enjoyed being your chicken-assistant and would like to attend “chicken camp” again very soon. Buster thanks you for treating him like one of your own, and now that we are west-coasters, we hope to be back soon for more yummy meals together, swimming & of course, quality chicken-time…. Xo
