Yet another busy weekend for the Kreifels family – I’m pretty certain I can just assume every weekend from here until forever can be classified as “busy”!. We lined my mom up to watch the kids Friday night and decided to hit up the Scotty McCreery concert at the Washington County Fair. It was a much needed night out without the kids- I can’t speak for the quality of the performance as we spent most of the night in the beer garden and couldn’t really hear the band at all. Still nice to have adult time!
Saturday morning Joe and I were up early and took one injured pig that we aren’t going to be able to show at the fair to the butcher, ran to Omaha and ran a few errands, and then went and got the kids. We all took naps in the afternoon (I apparently am useless on 4 hours of sleep!), and then I tackled projects around the house – cleaning, helping Danika with a 4H project, etc.
We’ve been dog sitting for our neighbors this week, and two of their dogs are lab puppies with a lot of energy. The owners gave the kids spray bottles to spray the dogs so they don’t jump – the kids spent more time spraying each other than anything, so Saturday night we let them go crazy and have a spray bottle fight. They loved it!
We spent some time working with the pigs and went for a Ranger ride, and then I decided to tackle a late night project and make Danika some pig signs to hang by her stalls at the fair that she can write her pigs’ names on. She’s been having a rough time with her favorite pig being gone, so I thought it would cheer her up. It helped a little at least!
Sunday, we got the camper ready for the fair and then headed to the lake to swim with cousins for a couple hours.
We got home from the lake and Ashton snuggled up to Joe and not long after he was passed out!
We had a picnic with our 4H group Sunday evening at the fairgrounds and got home in time to get everyone showered and to bed…long day made for cranky kids! This week is our county fair, so we’ll be camping most of the week/weekend. I’ll do fair recap next week sometime….should be a fun/busy week!
