Let’s celebrate!

This past weekend, my cousin and her family came up for a visit. It was their sons birthday, so we had some cake and celebrated, then later on in the day went over to Knoebels. There was a ton of people there, but in the kiddie section the lines weren’t too bad.

The happy birthday boy!

After some yummy cake, naps and a thunderstorm we headed to Knoebels.

They were laughing hysterically on this one

These two were like two peas in a pod!

We loved having them stay with us for the weekend.  It was great being able to catch up and have a good time together.  Kids and all.  We did get away in the evening just us four adults.  Thanks to Micah’s mom for staying with the kids after we put them to bed.  By the way, Micah’s mom, Darlene, went home Monday.  It was nice having her here with us, the girls really loved having Grammy here to play with them as well.

The farm

We also went to a milk farm, which is where they raise cows to milk them later on when they are grown.  The kids really enjoyed walking around seeing all the cows and calves.  We even arrived just in time to see a calf being born.  And no, we didn’t milk any cows, but we did get to see them do that.  They clean off the udders and hook them right up to the machines.   I think they give tours pretty often, so if you’re interested, email us and we’ll give you the info.
