How 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!
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. 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. 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!
