I spent a few days with the nieces at their farm. Then loaded up a majority of them and brought them out for a week with Aunt Bonnie. I look forward to their visit every year and try to come up with new and interesting things to do.
The oldest three came with me. We spent the day feeding fish and playing in the creek at the Spearfish Fish Hatchery and park. Complete with a picnic lunch.

I try to help the girls with 4-H projects when they come. Taylor always makes jam, but we also try to make something using wood working or painting skills. This year we combined them. The two older ladies made birdhouses, while the youngest made a walking stick.
After the serious work was done, the fun began and they painted the houses to suit their taste.
The littlest two came and we immediately went for a hike. It is a five hour drive to Aunt Bonnie's so getting out and stretching ones legs is important.
Any ideas for projects next year?
