With dairy farmers and busy schedules, my family rarely spends a whole weekend together. This past weekend was the first time in six or so years that we attempted it.
But it was so worthwhile, even though some were coming and going throughout the weekend to take care of the cows back home.
Our camping destination was a little mountain farm about an hour away.
We hung out in the barn for most of the weekend.
A perfect place to enjoy meals, games, and just gabbing.
I woke in the early morning to hear the sound of the basketball on the barn floor hours before breakfast. After staying up late, I couldn't believe the youngsters' energy level.
Those with endless energy (that wouldn't be me) biked,
took walks in the woods,
and played cornhole (plus soccer and football).
Pipe cleaner glasses are great assets for the cornhole spectators.
Or you could just hang out with cousins in the leaves.
And of course, we ate.
When my family is together, food is always the main event.
Each family took turns planning a meal, so we had a constant stream of good food.
And if the November chill got to you, the barn's coffee and snack bar was always available.
What are you enjoying this November?
