All good things come to those who wait...

After sweet dreams from our first night in the tent the girls woke bright eyed and bushy tailed lol
And then once up and dressed, it was wellies on and off to see the chickens for some fresh eggs.
With the fire roaring and bacon cooking Ben and i was happy to let the girls go off and play.
Yummy hot coffee (tea for Ben) and bacon butties with brown sauce. Look at my plop of sauce it's in the shape of a heart lol no i didn't make it into one, the sauce just knew how much i heart this lovely place and was trying to tell me something too.
Up with the chickens and after lots of stroking, clucking, cooing and...

...plenty of feedLook what Daisy got...
Her very first egg. I think her little face says it all. Over the moon she was and said "Mummy, it's all warm" and "I'll be very careful with it"
I hope she remembers this special moment forever because i will.
More farm photos tomorrow.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes for Ben, he had a lovely day. Though he worked for most of it. We did go out for a yummy meal together in the evening and ate birthday cake with the girls and his Mummy, who's been staying with us for a few days.
Many thanks Viv for having the girls and letting this Mummy and Daddy escape for a little while. xxx See you soon.
Hugs.

what a lovely break away. I can just hear her little voice saying she will be careful with the egg. How very precious!

What an amazing trip and such an experience for your girls. Love the picture of them in that smashing bed. You never forget collecting your fist egg - I still remember mine and dropping it on the way home!
