Mega Easter Egg Hunt

We spent the afternoon picking up rocks in one of our fields. The girls decided to make a game out of it and pretend like we were hunting for Easter eggs....sort of the same shape, just a little harder and a little heavier. I would consider that a Mega Hunt--an 80-acre field full of rocks of all shapes, sizes, and colors. I just asked my resident farmer how many square feet are in an 80-acre field. The answer? 3,484,800 square feet. Man! Now, I'm REALLY tired!!!! We didn't get quite halfway across the field, so we'll finish tomorrow...hopefully.
And, yes, that's a mourning dove in Erin's hands. She has a broken wing. Kara found her shortly after we started, so Erin carried her all afternoon. She is now comfortably settled in a cage here in the house. We can't believe how calm and tame she is. She seems quite content to sit in the girls' hands. Erin is quite the animal rehabilitator!
