Today is Daryl’s birthday and what a fun weekend we had!
We had a wedding on Saturday in Des Moines, so after all the animals were fed really well and had gotten checked twice before we left, we headed south to get to the hotel where the wedding was being held.
We did get there a little early with the hope that we could check into the hotel also early, and with luck on our side and were able to get into our room and settled in before the wedding.
This wedding was a son of some good friends of ours and with the service, reception, and dance all at the hotel that we are staying it, we knew that the day was going to be fun and we were right!
Then on Sunday – Daryl’s birthday, we headed home to get a couple of things done around the farm and house before we talked to the kids. Daryl checked out the field that he wanted to plant this week to see if there were any more rocks in there and then decided to wait until tomorrow to get serious about planting corn. But he spent many trips back and forth to the farm to have all the equipment lined up and ready to go!
Well with that plan in mind, we took the Cheville out for a drive and supper at a local hangout. We laughed because we weren’t sure if we should order a medium pizza or large an to give you and idea on how much we had leftover, this is our ‘To Go’ box AFTER we had eaten! Maybe we should have ordered a small instead?
On the way back from supper we could see more neighbors in the fields than we were expecting. So when we got home Daryl decided to change clothes again and see what the fields actually look like. I didn’t see him again until it was time to talk to the kids. Not sure what he was doing, but I’m sure it had something to do with planting corn.
Now with our kids not always able to be together for family birthday’s we do what we need to for everyone to get together to celebrate. So usually Skyping is on our agenda and let me just say that it works really well for our family when we can’t get together in person.
With Daryl blowing out the candles while the boys sang Happy Birthday, and presents were unwrapped, it’s time to cut off a piece of birthday cake before we head to bed and start the next week that’s ahead of us.
I’m thinking that it’s going to be busy
