Reid checking out the cows up close. However, he was calling them horses for the majority of the time we were there. I guess these city kids need more country time!
When one started Moo-ing, that would get Reid laughing. He was scream..."AGAIN" over and over again. He thought this was too funny.
My Ellie taking time to pose for the camera.
The scowl face. I think he was wondering where all the tractors were. He had had enough of the horses....I mean cows at this point.
See that little mud streak on his left leg? Well, that mud turned out to not be mud at all. Reid decided that it would benefit him if he held his shorts up on that leg in order to not get them dirty. Really? My son worried about not getting dirty? This was a first. We did have to bring out the wipes and clean him up because he was not happy about the cow "stuff" on his leg.
Ellie and Brooke held hands much of the day. New friendships are so fun!
Combine time! Reid was definitely having a panic attack at this time....there were so many tractors and equipment that he didn't know where to begin!
Jerry (my friend's husband) was nice enough to give Reid a ride, which he LOVED more than words can even express.
And there he is...in his glory. I think he would have sat here for 3 hours if I would have let him. He thought this was the ultimate!
Chet and Reid making "vroom vroom" noises in the combine. All boy for sure!
Can you spot Reid in his bright green shirt? Look how small he is. Or, rather...look how BIG that machine is! Reid again in his absolute glory.
Now inside the machine. Buttons, knobs, levers, and switches. I am sure when Jerry goes to use this piece of machinery something will be messed up from all the "work" Reid was doing!
From afar I took this picture of the girls happily balancing along the boards near the cow barn while the boys sat and "drove" the combines. How different my little girl is from my farmer boy...and I am so blessed to have them both. What a fun day of farming and friendship. So glad summertime has arrived!
