Our littlest grandson was here yesterday . He was all excited that Papee was going to bale hay . The hay will only be used for bedding. We have had rain , rain, rain and more rain !!  This hay got rained on way too many times to be fed to our animals.  Papee got the baler and wagon all hooked up to the tractor and away they went. I walked up later to check on him. He was watching Papee bale the hay. I took my Kindle along and took some pictures of them . 

Some of the hay bales didn't make it on to the wagon. So our grandson was helping out. We got the hay baled and had about a load and a half. We took the wagons to the barn and decided to unload the hay then . And of course our grandson had to help . 

Here he is all ready to help unload. He was a big helper to Papee and me. He pushed the bales to the front of the wagons. Papee put them on the elevator and just tumbled them in to the hay mow. For as little as he is , he is a good little worker  !! 
Our oldest grandson  JP  just graduated from Bellefonte High School. We are so proud of him. He had some struggles , but he worked hard and made it  ! He is helping his Dad with his lawn care business right now. But he has plans to enlist in the Marines. We will worry about him , but will be so proud of what he is doing ! CONGRATULATIONS ....JP !!

Papee's Helper

Our little Grandson loves being on the farm and helping his Papee. He was here  the other day and went to the barn to help. Papee had to feed the steers chop and hay . So Landon got to help and he was so excited. 

There is nothing better for kids than to be on a farm !  Playing outside  and enjoying that fresh country air  !

Grandson's Bestest Birthday !

Our little grandson just turned 5 this month and he was so excited to help out his Pap with hay. He got to help drag the hay bales out of the barn. Then he got to help load the hay on the truck. And also got to help deliver it to our Amish customer. Then he got back to the farm and got a tractor ride. He said it was the Bestest Birthday ! LOL ! 
He just loves being here on the farm . He always wants to know where Pap is and what he is doing !  He will look out at the shed and see what piece of equipment is missing . He will say ... I see the baler isn't in the shed ....where is Pap ?  Then we will walk up to the field and see what Pap is doing. And of course get a tractor ride !

Hay , Hay and More Hay

Our old barn is filling up with lots of hay , some for us to feed to our steers and some to sell  . We have probably unloaded at least 30  +  loads of hay . My husband and our one neighbor, who is in his 70's usually do the baling . Then they bring the big wagons down to the barn . When they are all done we start unloading. So far just my husband , our neighbor and myself are doing the unloading. We did have some help from the family the week of the big Anniversary Party. We make sure we have plenty of water to drink. Especially on those hot and humid days. I DO NOT like unloading in that kind of weather. But when you have hay ...you unload it whatever the weather  !
Our one old wagon partly unloaded. I much prefer this wooden wagon to the HUGE , metal red one we have . That red wagon hold way too may bales  ! LOL  !
Tomorrow we have hay to bale and unload again. There could be 3 or 4 loads. We only have 3 wagons. So they will bale the 3 loads and we will unload one . They will take the wagon back to the field and bale the last load. We may not get it all unloaded tomorrow. 
The hay mow filling up . I just realized I also got a picture of my husband's cup of soda . It is amazing how fast the hay mow fills up . I will take more pictures with each load we do.

Double Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Last night we had a Wonderful night with family and friends ! We had a party for my Mom and Dad's 60th Anniversary and my husband's and my 40th Anniversary . It was such a special evening. There was loads of food . We had ham platters, meatballs sandwiches , pasta salad, tossed salad, macaroni salad , relish tray and dip, fruit tray and dip, wine, soda, beer and cakes. There were  some of the family up from Florida. They stayed at my Mom and Dad's house and camper.  We have been having lots of picnics and had a campfire here on the farm the other night.

For years my husband always teased my parents promised them $10,000 to take me off their hands. He told them he was still waiting to get paid. So my parents had a huge check made up for him in that amount.  LOL !  They presented it to him at the party.

                                                       Me and my husband

My Mom and Dad 

We both danced to Alan Jackson's REMEMBER WHEN ~~ Such a Beautiful Song  ! It was a night we all will remember for years  . Thank you to all our family and friends who came to join in the Celebration !

Planting the Fields

My husband has been busy planting in the fields. He has all the oats planted. He got it all in before we got this rain. Today was so nice. Sunny and breezy . I hung clothes on the line. I can't wait every year til it is nice enough to hang my clothes on the line outside. There is nothing like the smell of clothes dried on the clothesline! Especially the sheets !

Our 4 year old grandson is all excited it is finally getting nice enough for him to play outside. He had his tractor , fire engine  and wagon all in a line on the sidewalk , ready to go .

Took some pictures the other day of my husband working  in the fields.
