It was nice to get out of the house today and Elizabeth was pretty good the whole trip. When we got there, there were 3 bulls inside the electric fence that surrounds the 7.5 acres of trees. So while Travis drove them out, Elizabeth & I put the insulators the bulls had knocked off of the rods back on and bent the rods back straight. While Travis walked the fence and put a gate in, Elizabeth played with the toys on her booster seat and I started counting trees for the plot map. After a few pictures for progress reports, we were back on our way home. It took us 2.5 hours to get there to do 2 hours of work, but hey, I get paid for it!! To get to spend the day out with Travis makes all of the driving worth it!

Fixing Fence & Counting Trees
Elizabeth got her flu shot this morning. She cried a little because I was holding her arms and cried for a minute after the shot, but nothing horrible. She then took a nice long nap on our way to Danbury with Travis to check on the Chinese Tallow trees he's got planted for work.
