Wilbur and Napoleon

Wilbur is doing very well and growing daily.  And he has a new best friend.  Without Charlotte and Templeton he seemed lonely and so Napoleon has come to stay.  Napoleon is 3 weeks older but a lot bigger.  They wrestle constantly and charge around snorting and squealing as best friends will, if they happen to be pigs.  They are excited to be able to finally move outside this weekend.  The warmer weather has made it possible for them to stay outside the shed permanently.  Their pen is under the old henhouse and it will provide them plenty of shade in the hot months ahead.  The swimming pool is their favorite place to lay in the midday heat.
Hannah helps feed them every day and likes to sit and watch them.  All the kids like to climb in the new pen and pet the pigs.  They have to be careful though.  Eating is taken very seriously.  After Napoleon and Wilbur eat they aren't real huggable, as you can see below.

  1. Doesn't look like they are rooting up the pen yet. They have gotten so BIG I can't believe it.
