Cousins on the Farm

Date December 20, 2010

It’s not Christmas yet, so I’m not going to feel too bad about my delinquency on Thanksgiving posts. We went to Julie’s dad’s farm for Thanksgiving and both of her brothers and their families came out as well. For one evening, we had 14 humans and 4 dogs! Julie, Benton, Carson, and I slept up at the hunting cabin, which is Benton’s preferred sleeping spot, anyway. A (large) handful of shots of the aunts/uncles/cousins at play:

But, wait. I don’t want to give the impression that Meg is 100% nurturing and snuggly!

Patti DRIVES the Tractor
(imagine a thought cloud over Bob’s head: “If I can get her back this summer and hook up the brush hog, I do believe she could mow the north 40!”)
