Vay-K Weekend Update

Hello there readers!

I will do the best I can to inform you of my epic weekend.


After waking up in the early morning, doing chores and then cleaning house with Nathan, I departed for Shiocton, WI to visit my roommate in her hometown for her birthday. It was a nice two-hour drive where I got to see a lot of farm land that isn’t farmed by the Bloechls. It is truly amazing how much of a difference there is in the height and substance of the corn and beans just a few hours south of here. Corn was at least waist-high and the beans were bushing up to pretty substantial proportions. We have to wait a few more weeks for that.

When I arrived at Alycia’s, it was like a breath of fresh air. I honestly cannot live without her. After her dog tried to eat my face, I forced her to open her presents (which were hand decorated dinnerware (here’s how!))



Alycia’s birthday  was on the 20th, but her parents put on a big ole’ shin dig for her this last weekend. It was a blast! I met her whole extended family and friends from her hometown. I couldn’t have had a better vacation.


After a long night of shenanigans, I woke up early to go to Green Bay, WI. I met my godmother, uncle, his Mom, and my two adorable cousins for lunch. We then went to Bay Beach Amusement Park for a few rides. We went on the Sizzler and the Tilt-A-Whirl, both of which were as awesome as when I was little. After a while, I had to depart for home. Don’t worry, the cows were waiting, because I happened to arrive just when milking started. Dad went off to cut hay, so Zach, one of our workers, and I milked.

Today is Nathan’s 20th birthday! We celebrated with cookies and creme cake with my Grandmas. It was a load of fun and he is pretty giddy at the thought of not being a teenager anymore.

But I did get to cut another pasture while Dad and Nathan piled the dry hay bales we made last week.
