This week on the farm…

Here are a few images to catch you up on all the goings on around here lately…

This is one area where we are storing the grain. The yellow auger is hooked up to the tractor and will be moved to load all the grain into the bins….

Daddy and his helpers watching the grain truck back up to the auger.

My husband opening the back of the truck to unload the wheat.

Our truck driver that day…my youngest (SINGLE!) brother-in-law…

He’s a fabulous Uncle…doesn’t this look like fun? (my poor baby…he loves it…)

And last, but not least…one of the combines working hard!!

On the farm…

On the farm over the past couple of weeks, we my husband and uncle have been pulling the harvest equipment out and giving them the once over….this led to Troy’s uncle getting a new (to us) combine! Fun stuff. It should be here later this week and we’ll be saying goodbye to this one…

(p.s. don’t ask me any details about the new one…all I know is it’s green and newer…this is how much I pay attention…)

The boys washed off the sprayer…

And this is my 10 month old backing it up. 🙂

The boys also stacked bales…..

I think the baby was “a lot” of help….

Here are a few of the bales we have for this winter…this was a good hay year!

We also got to jam in a quick trip to Kalispell and Whitefish, Montana! It was a great trip, saw lots of county and did a lot of shopping. By the end of the trip our wildlife tally was a lot of deer, several elk, 3 black bears and 1 cougar! So amazing to see all these animals out in the wild…my highlight was the cougar…it crossed the road right in front of us as we were entering back into Canada. I had never seen one before and so close! Yikes! And the black bears were fabulous too. Up to this trip all the real live bears I had ever seen were dead ones on the side of the road…

Of course, I didn’t take a single picture…but my darling mother-in-law did, so if she sends them to me, I’ll post some!

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!!
