Wrapping up the fun

We had a great time on our annual trip to see my parents and other friends and family members. These are some random shots from that trip.

Just some of the bounty from the land. Everything on this plate was grown on the premises. Little G cutting the corn out of the beans. This is a slightly dangerous occupation, but he is pretty cautious and got the hang of it an

  1. I am so envious! you're a blessed woman to have such great parents who not only WANT you to come visit, but have such neat things for the kids to learn and do.

  2. Looks like the kids had a good time, quite the education for them!
