Nope, on any Friday night (and really any night of the week) we load up the kids and dog and head out to go check cows, check crops, go do some irrigating or a hundred other things that need to be done. We take this time to be together as a family, but do get our work done and teach our kids.
Putting out mineral is just one of the many things we do together as a family. We irrigate, we seed, we hay, we move cows, we work cows, we harvest, we play, we fight, we hug and we love. Its just what we do.
The kids, though they are young, have already learned you can't go check cows, put out mineral without checking on the water! And maybe so mom can snap some pictures.
