corn picking

Yesterday Levi and I went out to pick corn.
We weren't picking sweet corn from the garden this time.
This was serious corn picking.
And I'm pretty sure it might have been Levi's best day ever.

Every time Levi sees his dad his arms start pumping up and down wildly.
It is pretty funny.

But when he saw his dad AND this huge combine he was REALLY excited.
It must be a boy thing.

He sat on the floor of the cab and checked everything out.

He really liked looking out the window.
I think we left a few finger prints behind too.

When we were dumping the corn, Levi got to drive.

This was his favorite part.
He tried to touch EVERYTHING.

Seriously, this child never stops moving.

And he doesn't stop talking very often either.
I think he might talk as much as his dad.

Levi didn't like sitting with me quite as much.
He kept lunging across the seat to touch all the controls.
He really wanted to drive.

There is nothing better than an evening of combining with dad.
Can you feel the excitement?

Super duper cute photos. Michel just asked me yesterday if you all had harvested yet. This would be harvesting, right? Hahaha. (Aren't you impressed with my farm knowledge?)
Hunter is going to think these pictures are awesome. He might suffer from a tiny bit of jealousy though!

I have a feeling Levi might share a certain love of tractors (John Deere, of course) with his daddy. Gotta love the genuine smile -and sheer happiness- on both he & Joel's faces!

Levi just keeps getting cuter and cuter and cuter!

It really is a boy thing! We live in the city. But my brother-in-law is a farmer down south (independence). Every time we go see them (my family), all my son wants to do is go look at the combines/tractors! It is too funny!

My baby (3) is STILL talking about the time he got to ride in the "tombine".

And now his entire bedroom is being decorated in John Deere. ;-)

Levi is so yummy!! He's getting cuter by the day.

How adorable is your baby boy!?!? It's just too much! He looks so much like his daddy and so happy! My boys don't sit still either--they've got ants in their pants. :) You're already harvesting corn? We're probably a few weeks behind you up here. It's been so wet that it's too soon yet but the boys love to help combine and look forward to the day when they drive the truck to the elevator! My husband's family still farms and we help out at harvest. It's a great time, busy, but great!

Seriously LOVE this post. My kids always looked forward to rides in the combine with their Dad and this brought back so many memories. You can tell Levi was loving EVERY minute!!

Corn harvesting is my favorite season on the farm. Big days with a wonderful sense of accomplishment. However, you are way ahead of us. In SE NE, our harvest doesn't typically start intil the end of September. You've really got me looking forward to it now!!
