My Grandpa Ed, Auntie Debbie and Uncle Danny live on the family farm up in Northern Minnesota. My aunt and I were texting the other day and she informed me she had a 25 year old Italian sourdough starter that she'd share! We took a look at our schedule and blocked out a day for an impromptu visit. It takes about three hours to get up there, so we got up and hit the road to make it for an early lunch.
All of my kids (Kolachi included) had a BLAST! They were all able to roam, run and explore. Danny and Debbie kindly put their own dogs away so that my 'city dog' could experience farm life without sticking her nose in anyone else's territory. She was even allowed inside their log home.
The gorgeous sourdough--
After a nice lunch, we went on a walk down the looong road to the gravel pit. Kolachi was SO excited to be off-leash she got a little rambunctious.
She had her first swimming experience when we reached the gravel pit. She wasn't quite sure what to think at first, but soon was hopping in and out of the water like a pro.
We had a wonderful visit, and were all a little sad when it came time to head back to Woodbury, but we had a three hour drive ahead of us. Next time we'll try to coordinate an overnight tenting adventure!
