Then we went back to dad's and all crashed! On Sunday morning, those that came from New Mexico and Arkansas came over and the wives and kids spent the day at Dad's while the guys and the oldest two boys went golfing. We had a scavenger hunt, played about 15 games of hide-n-seek, took the 4-wheeler out twice, and played croquet. We actually also got to meet and play with my in=laws amish neighbors. The kids wanted to ask them if their kids could play hide-n-seek, so we let them and they all came over! The little girls played and the parents talked with our adults that were not playing.
They even invited our kids over to see them milk their cow! It was great! most of the kids were from the city and had never seen a cow be milked and were completely amazed! The amish were so nice and were more than happy to answer all our questions. They get about 6 gallons of milk a day from one cow. They have a spring that runs in their root cellar to help keep it cold and they make cheese, butter and cottage cheese just to name a few from that milk. They speak Dutch until they go to school where they learn English. So sometimes it seems like they are "slow" but they are translating in their heads! It was great and I am so glad they got to experience it! Emily, our niece, is the same age as Amanda, the amish girl, and they quickly got over the language barrier and had a wonderful time together!
We had such a fun time and can't wait to see everyone again! Lisa and I are constantly texting each other and already planning another visit! Probably not for a few years, but sometime sooner than 8 years! And seeing Keith with his new family and baby girl was wonderful! A great time was had by all and we can't wait to see each other again!
