Breakfast on the Farm

Today we spent the morning at Breakfast on the Farm. This required us to get up at 6:10 AM to head out to the country for a wonderful breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausage and strawberries. I was not thrilled with the incredibly early wakeup time and wasn't sure how the kids would do. But they did surprisingly well. Callie was thrilled to be going somewhere and Wyatt was pretty excited about going to a farm. Sadie was her usual laid back self and slept until late morning.

The breakfast was held at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion in Rollag, MN. It was a beautiful drive to get there and there was so much to see and do once we were there. Wyatt participated in the kid's pedal tractor pull. He won a terrific door prize. We were able to see many steam tractors, old engines, and a variety of farm animals. The two older kids had a great time (as did their parents). I suppose next year I will be reminding myself of how much fun it is when I have a hard time rolling out of bed in the wee hours of the morning.

Oh, for something fun, I am including a picture of our breakfast last year so you can see how Callie has changed in one year. It is absolutely amazing!

Wyatt pedaling hard.

He didn't get a trophy, but he won a door prize - a die cast metal Ford 8N tractor with a flare box wagon.

Our family - Jason, Kelli, Wyatt, Callie, Sadie, (and Shika the dog) - and an Allis Chalmers WD45 tractor (the first Allis Chalmers tractor available with power steering, you know)

2010 - we've come a long way in a year
