They had barely got out of the car before our girls were showing them the pigs and chickens.
Country Boy made an amazing peach pie for dessert, so after dinner the kids had some with icecream while we watched Funniest Home Videos. We put all the girls in the one bedroom, and were expecting a lot of late night chattering, but surprisingly, they were all asleep fairly quickly. That combination of lots of fresh air, and excitement was exactly what they needed!
Later we went over to the dam, to hit some floating golf balls into it (always brings out the competitive streak in the adults), and chuck some rocks into it – such fun!
After an afternoon snooze, we lit a bonfire on an old tree stump that we want to rip out, and toasted marshmallows. The kids hung around for a while, but once the marshmallows ran out, they headed off for a game of hide and seek, leaving us to
channel our inner pyromaniacs tend the fire.
