Watch out Hammer! Connor can't see you there.
The donkeys had been nervous around me the whole time we had been on the farm, but on potluck day they let me feed them. If you'll note that in the back left of the image there is a cow lurking; a cow named Mouse.
Mouse got in on the action. Imagine if you were feeding Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars. That is what feeding a cow feels like. Its tongue is so hutt-like. I did my best to drop the carrot on top of her tongue, but I still got cow spit on me.
In the evening all the cousins went searching for fireflies so I could see one up close. I'd only ever seen them once when I was really, really young. It was the end of firefly season, but there were a few out. Logan caught one for me, but it refused to light up after we put it in a bottle. After releasing the firefly, Connor and I spent some time taking pictures of the cows.
Snowball was an excellent model
The next day a bunch of us went on an 11 mile (18 km) canoe trip. It should have taken four hours, but it took us closer to six.
I'm really glad I got to be part of this trip. The views were amazing and I enjoyed everyone's company.
Just around the river bend!
Make no mistake, though. By the end of the trip, we were all pooped out.
But as we drove off, the fireflies came out again to share their magic with us. I can't wait to go back.
