Memorial Day Weekend

We enjoyed another Memorial Day Weekend at MaryKay’s farm in Pennsylvania; lovely space, quiet and fun. There is something that just slows down when we hit the farm. We sleep in (unless our dog, crazed by the new house, goes around and wakes us each up), prepare large meals, talk about doing work around the farm and sometimes even do a little work. And then we nap!
This year Royce cleaned the barn for awhile and all kids threw rocks from the creek to the shore. This is their standard chore, half getting wet and cooling off and half helping stop erosion. There is some tubing down the river with adults laughing at the tiny tubes the kids used ten years ago when we first visited. The dog jumped in, got carried by the current, managed to get out of the creek- and then jumped back in and did it all over again.
The only change to our routine this go around was driving. The twins, both new drivers, wanted to take loops around a very quiet road on the farm. We all did that many times. A driving loop at 20 miles per hour takes about 10 mins. So all licensed adults did a few loops with various twin drivers. Not as relaxing as the rest of the weekend but all the other downtime helped gear us up for it!
