labor day picnic

Not a picnic at the park or at the lake, but a picnic in the corn field.  Joel had to work on Labor Day, so we partied in the field.  Ruth made a delicious "tailgate" meal.  Not quite like a K-State football game tailgater, but still lots of fun!

Papa and "Bammy" (Grammy) joined us for the picnic.

Joel loves his new combine.  He says it is awesome, but if you want to know more about it you will have to ask him.  (I know I am the farm wife, but I am not one of those wives that can tell you all about the farm equipment.  I'm learning SLOWLY.)

Joel's brother, James, has been driving the grain cart.  It looks like such a hard job!  Joel says that I will have to learn someday, but I think I am too chicken.

And here is the grain.  The corn is looking good this year!
