Friday was a chaotic day for us. After work we just wanted to go somewhere quiet, far away from the city. We rented a car and drove out to the country, three hours to John’s hometown in Huron County.
There, we managed to accomplish thirteen things on our list in one weekend, including hand-milking a cow, driving a tractor, chopping down a tree with an axe, using a chainsaw and a wood splitter, filleting a fish, wearing a rope belt, GT’ing on the back of a motorized vehicle, plucking a chicken, throwing a spaghetti fight, driving a back hoe, cooking on a rotisserie fire, and making butter from scratch. (You think I am joking, but I am so not joking.)
We’ll be posting these to-do’s chronologically, as they happened throughout the course of this randomly perfect weekend, staring with Saturday morning, bright and early, 6:00am at a dairy farm where Dave works.
*Thanks to everyone who made this whole weekend possible for us, including big brother Dave, sister Liz, John’s Mom & Dad, John V. and his dad Doug, and Steenbeek Dairy Farm — we love your cows; they make great butter xox
