We had a delicious long weekend visiting our dear family. It was full to the brim of goodness. And lots of firsts. First time milking a cow, first time riding a pony, first time mucking out stalls, first time travelling by night. For the record, all our firsts turned out to be wonderful experiences. (Whew!)
By the way, raw milk is everything it's cracked up to be and more! It's so creamy and rich and delicious! Tastes different than the store bought kind, even the 3%. And when you're the one who's milked the cow, you know pretty much all you need to know about your milk. :) The kids drank lots of milk. They even had homemade frozen yogurt. Yum! I think that was one of S's favourite parts.
This my farmer boy. And what a funny sight for me as I find that usually he won't go near the source of any bad odours. Not so here. Did I mention how much I want a farm? A mama can dream. Although the bug situation was absolutely incredible! So many bugs! Flies, mosquitoes, you name it! All around. All the time. Poor M got eaten alive.
With all the fresh air, space and love, the kids were really in heaven. My heart was so full there. We all seem to find a sort of inner rest in Panagia's garden.
We drove back during the night and the kids conked out for at least the last 2 hours. And I must admit I did too. Thank goodness D was our trusty driver. He never disappoints. I feel blessed to have him around so much.
Hope you had a lovely weekend too!
