Where on earth....

has this chick been?

Things have been busy...

We attended the Northeast Poultry Congress Show in Springfield, MA on January 26th.  Chicken stuff like this is usually reserved for just Pappa Chick and I, however we decided to make it a family day so I also dragged my husband and my 14 year old. I did have to bribe my 14 year old with the promise of Chicken and Dumplins at Cracker Barrel on the way home.

Let me just say, there were A LOT of chickens in da house! My little Pappa Chick wanted to go up and down every row of poultry.  Now I enjoy chickens just as much as the next chick, however I also have a very short attention span.

Being the bad mother that I am and seeing my husband and 14 year old's eyes completely glazed over.  I tried to move things along. I told PC that some of the rows were closed for judging and we had to skip them.

There were some really nice chickens...

there were these cuties, I just love any buff chicken.

Then the traditional Reds...  
and who doesn't just love a prize winning turkey?

This chick has also been cheering for the AFC champion Patriots.  Go Pats! In honor of the AFC game and the party we had, I tried my hand at a little chalk art(mind you on a good day I can't draw a stick figure)

I was pretty happy how it came out and super excited to be able to leave it up for a
couple more weeks while we await the SUPER BOWL!

Being the Cub Scout mom that I am, there was scouting involved as well.  Our Cub Scout pack always has a museum 'camp in' every January.  This year we camp in at Old Sturbridge Village. We had 84 scouts and parents attend.  We slept in different areas throughout there educational building. 
The educational building is a really fun building. 
They have all different areas for hands on activities from
cooking on an open hearth to weaving, games of the day, printing and art. 

We explored the village in the dark by candle light. 

The boys made cookies for their evening snack. 

Lights out for the boys was 10pm and then the staff let us use their lounge for a late night trivial pursuit game.

It has been a busy few weeks in my neck of the woods.  Hope things have been good in yours'.

Go Pats!
