Trail Mix Cookies

Today marks the first day back to school for my kiddos so I decided to make an after school treat that plays ode to summer and is fun to help celebrate the new school year: Trail Mix Cookies.

O'Brien County Family Weekend Getaway

This summer our family went on a road trip to Northwest Iowa to explore O'Brien County. We loved our weekend getaway and will share all of our recommendations of things to do, places to eat and where we stayed so you can plan your own trip!

Knee High by the 4th of July

The 4th of July is a great time to celebrate our country's independence, show off your patriotism, spend time with family and friends, shoot off fireworks and check crops. It's been tradition for decades that farmers check their crops, especially corn, to see if it is "Knee High by the 4th of July." Now while knee high isn't the benchmark for farmers anymore due to hybridization and improved genetics, it is still a fun tradition for our family to benchmark our corn (and family's) growth every year. In fact, our family has been taking an annual "Knee High" photo for the last decade (see 202120202019201820172016201520142013 and 2012).

#sleepwiththecows at New Day Dairy Guestbarn in Clarksville, Iowa

Our family is always up for an adventure and we were excited to head east from our farm to our friend's Dan & Lynn's farm to experience a one-of-a-kind overnight stay at their vacation rental Guestbarn that overlooks their dairy farm. From 24 hour cow gazing, to helping Dan with chores, to eating lots of delicious dairy products, and making friends with lots of cows, this is a road trip our family will always remember!
