We made a stop along the way to let the kids play on the church playground. I know it looks like the bigger kids were the ones playing, but the three small ones are hidden in there as well.
That's a backdoor look at our home across the fields and taken from the church parking lot.
My SIL Aaron and my youngest GB Connor - He's upset because he wanted to ride up front on the tractor with Gramps.
Mom and my 2nd youngest GB Lexi - Lexi is very particular about having her picture taken, so although she looks very serious here, she returned to smiles once the camera was not focused on her.
Some of the color we are seeing on the Mountain...can you tell we live in a valley? We live close to the east side of the valley and are nestled right up against Suck Creek and Signal Mountains.
Farms dot the countryside, here in our valley.
Almost everyone has moved to the round hay bales and they lay haphazardly in almost every field along the way. I've taken up hay many times with the square bales...driving the tractor and wagon across the field and hefting the square bales, weighing about 50 pounds each, up on the wagon. That will wear you out real fast. With the round bales, there is a long narrow attachment that hooks on the tractor and it gets speared right into the center of the bale and raised up on the wagon.
I hope you enjoyed our Hayride through the country. Thanks to Susan at Southern Daydreamer for hosting this fun weekly event. Please visit her here, to see other Outdoor posts for this week.
All the best,
