We love family time at this pig pen

As I've told you before holidays do not always mean rest when you are a farmer and this Labor Day weekend is no different.  Although we haven't started harvest yet, we are busy getting ready as it will start any day.  Additionally, when you are livestock farmers, like we are, there is always something to do as the care of our pigs always comes first.  

Although it is a very busy time of year on our family farm, we have been able to sneak in some quality family time the last two nights of this Labor Day weekend.  Due to the Labor Day weekend, Big Sissy and Bubby didn't have any soccer games this weekend so they snuck  in a game of football on Saturday night. 

Little Sissy even joined in on the fun.  


Last night, we were able to have a family cookout at my in-laws that included The Farmer's brothers, Uncle M and Uncle K.  Auntie E, Uncle's M's wife, and Cousin N  and E were there too.  Unfortunately, Uncle K's girlfriend had to work and couldn't join us.  Big Sissy, Bubby, and Cousin N were devastated as they love playing hide-n-go-seek with her. 

After a delicious meal of pork burgers, french tomatoes, BBQ green beans, and other yummies made by mother-in-law including a chocolate cake decorated by Big Sissy, we headed out to the pond for some fishing.

Although the bites were slim, everyone had a great time.

 Hope you and your family are having a great Labor Day weekend!!
