Another day that started slowly. Girls slept in a bit, and then we were treated to a nice breakfast from Miriam. Afterwards it was straight to the mules and back out to Kenny's farm to play with cats. Kristine showed us her horses and talked about them, girls helped out the feeding of them and cats. Then with Kendra and Kenny in one mule, and Jasmine and I in another, we drove through the woods, and through creeks for miles. Finally we had to return home to Miriam's for lunch. Jasmine broke a tail light when she backed into a gas tank, so after fessing up to Adolph she and I drove to Calmar to find replacement. When we got back we were immediately off to Jenny's to hang out by their pond. The girls swam, the adults chilled and trap shot. A great BBQ dinner of buffalo and shrimp with potatoes and salad before returning home.
