During our trek to Maryland, we stopped by our friends, the Trouts, who operate a dairy farm in Sedila, Kentucky. Twice a day we enjoyed the new experience of learning how to milk cows.

In the evenings and between chore times, we enjoyed games of volleyball. Winners were privileged to more sleep the next morning, while the rest woke up to undertake the 4am milking. :)

We thank the Lord for the gift of friendships, fun times, and sweet memories!
