Party Down at the Farm

We were able to participate in the yearly party/potluck out on our CSA farm. We have been looking forward to it for awhile and it did not let us down. We had a really great time.
There was food, hay bale rides on the tractor, music and dancing...and lots of great company. I think the contra dance was my favorite. Mitchie was my dance partner, and Avery was Chris'. They both did a great job following the caller and doing all the moves. We did not get any pictures because we were so busy dancin'!!
We ended up taking two hay rides. We thought about not going on the second one but then i figured why not? We are not going to get a chance to do this again. Thank goodness we did! Farmer Brian took all the kids to the potato field and let them dig up their own potatoes to take home. They loved it!! Ruby the farm dog was the highlight of the hay ride. The kids loved it. Avery is even writing about Ruby and her adventures on the farm. Seems we were both inspired by the farm.
It was a perfect day, with perfect weather, great company(i love my little family) and a great party. While digging in the dirt and riding a tractor may not sound like a rolicking good time to some...we are a simple family with simple pleasures and this was a really fun time. I was soaking up every moment, wishing it could go on for longer.

That would have been my kind of a day too. Digging potatoes is fun.

Fun! I can't believe how chilly it looks so early...you guys must be in the swing of fall--but your trees look so green still.

Looks like fun Les. I wish we could have been with you! I bet you Avery and Sofi would have a lot of fun together! I have Sofi writing about our Disney trip right now. I'm going to correct it for her so she can copy it into her scrapbook. Very fun!

We were out pulling potatoes this week, too... out at the farm in Palmer~ where you visited us that one wonderful March. I found potato-pulling to be very soul-satisfying.

And WOW! Avery's hair is long and BEAUTIFUL! You have beautiful children, dear friend.
