Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


It's Monday

Today the girls and I headed out early for a field trip to the creamery with some new-found friends from soccer.  It was a beautiful day for a drive through the mountains.

Someone is not looking too well in this photo....

After we all donned our hair nets, we were greeted by the owner who shared with us all about making cream.

It was not a large facility, but it did have a rather strange smell.  I guess it was the smell of thick cream.  Regardless, Eva showed her disdain for the odor during the whole tour.

It was all so interesting to see how the bottles moved along, how the milk filled the bottles and then capped by the machines.

We moved on to the butter-making area.

After the churning, they place the butter here to be pressed into the molds for packaging.  It looks so good.

Next to the butter section was the ice cream area.  They were in the process of making Peppermint Ice Cream just for the holiday season.

 Before it is frozen, they put it in containers.

The peppermint goes in right before the ice cream is finished.

The girls were not too fond of the freezer.  It never gets that cold in Virginia.

There were some small animals for petting and feeding.  The goats preferred chewing on my fringed purse, though.

After our tour, we got to taste regular, chocolate, strawberry, and orange milk.  And we all got a cup of our favorite ice cream.  It was a fun time!

After we got home, Joy promptly took a nap at my suggestion.  She's just is not feeling well.  She is our family's first cold victim this season.  Poor baby!

It looks like you had one fabulous field trip. I would've loved to join you! It looks like so much fun!!!! And so very yummy.


Such a fun (and yummy) field trip! Hope Joy feels better soon!
(On a side note, my husband's job is to design machines like the one you saw filling the milk bottles. Fun to see one in operation! :))
