Holiday at the Bells Farm

The boys and I have just returned from a
mini holiday at our good friends, The Bell Family.
They live on a farm about 30km out of town,
it was so much fun.

The neighbours had a new baby born a while ago,
A baby donkey!
Not sure what a baby donkey is called,
I don't think it's called a foal.

How cute!

Everyone had a turn of leading mother donkey around

There was even a pony with a foal

Back at the Bell Farm, the little people spent a good hour
jumping on the silage rolls,
they were like giant lillypads.

My boys had such a great time,
we saw Angora Goats, kangaroos, emu's,
sheep, cows and calves, bulls, dogs, donkeys
and ponies, tractors and motor bikes,
the chooks were fed many times
and nests checked for eggs many times.

We went for a drive around the paddock to check
the cows and the calves.

Simone and I even had time for creating.
We sliced up her fabric for a quilt for one of
her daughters, set up our 2 machines
and pieced it together.
This was a great quick way get the quilt done
I would recommend it.

It still needs 3 borders sewn on,
Simone text last night to say she had done 1 1/2 borders
Well Done Simone.
She had better get cracking as she also has to do another
quilt for another daughter.

Thanks so much to the Bell family for having us stay!
We had a fantastic time!
