On Monday we went down to Creston via Nelson and the ferry. This seemed like a fun idea but in reality took a million years and we were all a bit grumpy by the end. On the plus side, we were on the ferry for golden hour and it was amazingly beautiful.
The purpose of our visit was to help butcher a cow. My parents have a farm and generously raised a cow for the family. I remember helping butcher when I was younger and just being so grossed out all the time. Now, I'm just incredibly grateful for a freezer full of beef!
It was a day and a half of work, and we were all grateful that the kids are old enough now to not need constant attention (or be worn in a carrier while working). They got in some good cousin time (and a little bit of fighting, of course).
Love these girls.
It's Ria's birthday on Saturday (5! Someone hold me!) and my grandma came down with a gift for her. Ria was showing her how she could make a heart with her hands.
