IMG_9354How much fun can you fit in a day? Well we found out this weekend when my parents, sister and Aunt and Uncle came to visit! Pond swimming, critter visiting, horse riding, canoe paddling, animal castrating, monkey bridge crossing!

Keagan is a city boy. He had a great time doing all things "farm"!

Wait, did I just say animal castrating?! Yes, definitely. How can you fully experience farm life if you don’t get to castrate at least one breed of animal? And, luckily for them (ha!) or not so luckily, we had 4 little calves that needed to be banded.IMG_9120 At least we didn’t ask them to help “snip and pull“! This was a relatively easy job of herding the little guys into the milking parlor, and holding them down while Jeremie put a tight band on them.IMG_9118 We have not seen my Aunt and Uncle in years and it was so good to catch up and hear their news. And my kids just absolutely soak up their time with Mitna and Bompa and Meg. Their visit was too short, but we will see them again soon!IMG_9386

  1. Looks like a great visit! Are those guys actually herding the calves? It looks more like they are trying to challenge them to a game of Red Rover! 😉

    • Your Opa was a little queasy thinking about castrating calves, but he was game to help herd them into the pen! We had a wonderful visit with everyone and are looking forward to a time when you and Brian can bring your kids out here! 😉
