The Nut House

Here's something I'm looking at for my dad's log cabin! It's kind of cute for family, right? His birthday is coming up in April, too.

Another April event for us will be going to Freeman to see The Sound of Music at Schmeckfest.

Schmeckfest (festival of tasting) is a four-day festival in Freeman, South Dakota that celebrates the heritage and culture of Germans from Russia, specifically Russian Mennonites, who migrated to North America starting in the 1870s. Established in 1959, German culture is showcased through traditional food and crafts prepared and demonstrated by the local Freeman community. Schmeckfest has been held every spring since and has grown to accommodate more than 5,000 guests every year. The event is held at Freeman Academy, a grade 5 to 12 private school, and raises $90,000 annually for the school.

Yes, we're going for the food!
