Had to take a few photos the other day of my boys out playing in the snow. It was a treat for them, since it’s supposed to be back with wind chills in the -50 range tomorrow. Brrrrrr…need to stay warm!
Although they had homework to get done, this Mama had to give a reprieve. It’s not every day that we have perfect conditions for playing in the snow!
Our semis don’t just haul crops, they’re multi-functional!
That’s probably the biggest 9-year-old snow angel you’ll ever see!
Playing in the snow can be hard work, but no one complained about bed time!
Last weekend was Applefest in our nearby town of Ellendale. The festivities for the day kicked off with a parade in the morning, followed by a Salute to Veterans and the crowning of this year’s Little Miss and Little Mr. Ellendale.
Check out the pics:
Nothing beats a great band in a parade!
Our military were honored throughout the day.
The 2011-12 Little Miss and Mr. Ellendale!
Our cute little neighbor girl, riding on the Little Miss and Mr. float!
She’ll kill me for this!
A few of the new cheerleaders, and our school mascot.
What parade is complete without a segway?
Our church’s float…love this, so much.
You never know what you might see…even on a dental float.
Even our crop consultant got in on the act!
He may not be Little Mr. Ellendale this year, but he’s definitely the “apple” of MY eye this Applefest! Love you, EJ!
First week of summer break is almost gone…we’ve been busy! I’ll catch up more later, but take a look at my boys enjoying a taste-test of sweet corn shipped to us from down south. I’d like to thank Monsanto for the chance to have an early bite of this delicacy…and can’t wait for our own to be ready!
The long-awaited cooler! Smelled so good!
Boiled up and ready to go!
This little boy was enjoying his first on-the-cob experience with sweet corn fully!
EJ gave the corn two thumbs up! (And was looking for more!)
Even Big Bro was excited about the sweet corn!
Our corn isn’t knee-high yet, but we’re up out of the ground…and that’s a great start!
The taste of sweet corn and the seed we planted was provided to our farm through Monsanto, but the thoughts, ideas and photos are my own.
