Apriltoberfest 2009

We couldn't have asked for better weather this past weekend. It was beautiful, sunny and warm in the afternoons and cool and calm in the evenings. The cousins all had a great time together, especially John and Gabe. Those two played throw-and-retrieve a ball every day, with Gabe erupting into giggles constantly.
We took a trip to a local creamery and the kids had their first close encounters with cows, roosters and turkeys. Gabe did not care for the turkeys. There was much pointing, ooh-ing and ahh-ing, playing in an enormous hay pile and sliding down a makeshift tunnel slide. We also discovered that I am allergic to cows. Not too surprising considering my severe allergy to horses. But fortunately all that resulted were a few small hives, sneezing and runny nose which a shower and some Benadryl took care of nicely.
