This weekend we went to Bahama (a farm town just outside of Durham) for a department party for Duke Radiology.
The party was at one of the Attending's houses. He lives on a 35 acre farm! He and his family have cows, chickens, horses, goats, ponds for fishing, beautiful gardens, a basketball court, a volleyball net, a tractor for hay rides, a swimming pool, an adorable little cabin (in addition to their big beautiful home) and much more!
We had a great time exploring the property, feeding the horses, taking a hay ride and eating good old southern barbecue.
Too bad Fernando's fellowship is only one year because we would love to join in on this annual event next year too. ;)
My memo to wear blue and white got lost in the mail.
A little conversation from this moment to show how well she knows her animals and how much we frequent a certain chicken establishment:
Rachel: Lucia, what are those?
Lucia: Uhh horsies
Rachel: No... Lucia, what are those?
Rachel: No. What are those??
Lucia: Chicken nuggets!
At the end of our hay ride we got to watch them feed the cows!
When we were checking out the cows on foot (before we took our hayride) we noticed that every time the tractor came by the cows started mooing like crazy. We didn't know why at the time. Then when we saw them feed the cows from the tractor we realized that the cows thought they might be getting fed every time the tractor came by!
