Mama Hen Takes Her Chickies to Lake of the Ozarks.

Life isn’t only about chickens and gardening.

(although that would be pretty close to perfect!)


(A great book)

Once a year we have a family get together – it is this Mama Hen’s Christmas present to the family.

Life is hectic so we can’t always be together but once a year we cram fun and games and tons of LOVE into a looooooooooooooooong weekend.

This is only our third year doing this ( I hope we can continue for a long, long time), but it is our second year in beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.


My daughter-in-law calls it the Midwest’s Paradise.

Since there are 16 of us we rented two three bedroom cabins side by side.  We can cook meals, hang out, enjoy the pool and deck and play games when we are not off doing some other fun stuff.


Here are some pics of my chicks!

No chicken keeping or gardening went on so there isn’t too much to write about.

I did get a great chicken-sitter to watch my ‘gals’ but that is for next week’s post.

I didn’t get many photos because we were busy eating, drinking, swimming, boating, tubing, fishing, shopping, go-karting playing games, going for ice cream – well you get the idea.

To me it is all about making memories and we made some good ones!

I hope you are having some summer fun and making some good memories with the people you love.

I am already looking forward to next year!017My flock.

    Such a great idea…we have started doing this the last 2 summers, in Sedona 2013, Branson 2014. So relaxing and yet love being able to hand out and cook for ourselves. Have fun! See you soon!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
