On the Farm

We went to my mom's this weekend. J and E love going to visit Grandma and Grandpa, especially during harvest. My step-dad is a wheat farmer and, after this weekend, there may be a strong chance that J might want to follow in his footsteps.

Grandpa started harvesting the day after we got there. After his ride on the combine, J excitedly told me that he was going to work with Grandpa tomorrow. I'm not exactly sure if Grandpa knew that but this is what happened the next morning:

Watching the men get the trucks ready for the day
J couldn't wait for breakfast. Grandma was kind enough to bring it to him. E wasn't quite sure what the rush was all about. After the trucks the kids and Grandpa decided to give Gunnar the horse a little morning snack.
Grandpa gets side-tracked. 
Gunnar was anxious for his carrots!
After feeding the horse, J set off with the men for the fields. A little before lunch Grandpa radio-ed in to the house to let us know that J was getting a little restless.

Somebody was NOT pleased that he was done "working" on the combine.  But he got over it when I told him we would be back later that week.

 Along with helping out on the farm E and J also had a blast playing with my sister's and my old toys.

In case you were wondering, the above pictures are documentation of "Mr. Tom" and his cat "Rose."  Mr. Tom is a snake hunter and was recently bitten by a rattle snake. But Rose ran and got help, so he lived. The rag in his hand is his precious "Snug" (aka best friend since birth. There is always drama when we can't find Snug).

I'm thrilled that J is exploring different career options. Farmer and Snake hunter are way better than his previous choice. 

Last year he wanted to be an ELEPHANT.
