Work With Me
Lily loves visiting my parents farm. Every time we’re there she gets to ride on the tractor and see the cows. However, this past visit was extra special.
It started out with a little hay baling. Usually baling hay this late in the year is unheard of, but not this year. My dad was going to finish up one field and then off to bale some cornstalks. He asked Lily if she wanted to ride along and she was very excited. We went for a ride in the tractor, made some big round bales, and Lily talked farming with grandpa Tom.
Lily and I had fun building a marble maze tower. We didn’t have any instructions, we just built it bigger and bigger. It wasn’t the most stable of structures, but it was a lot of fun.
Seconds after this video was taken the tower was destroyed.
We had a lot of fun carving pumpkins again this year.
Lily’s is pretty cool. It’s the second daylight one down on the left side. We used cookie cutters and then gave her a plastic poker that came with the carving kit. She poked a lot of holes in it and scratched the outsides. At night, it sparkles and glows pretty sweet.
Christi did the cool one with the pumpkin eating a pumpkin.
Mine was supposed to be Frankenweenie and it kinda turned out.
When you first have a baby, you get introduced to car sets. They are big, heavy and complex.
You have to secure them to those little hooks buried in the seats and pull so tight you think you’re going to break something as the can’t move more than an inch in either direction. Your kid is so secure that they can’t move.
Then you get to a booster set.
Booster seats are light, very light. They don’t have clamps and it doesn’t have to be in tight. You just toss it in the back, put the seatbelt through one side, and you’re done.
