Our final destination for our trip was the farm of Mike and Marilyn. Their farm is like a home away from home for us. We enjoy the wide open spaces, the clean air, the generous hospitality, and the company of great people. Here's a previous blog entry from when the kids were much younger. My how they've grown.
Michele and the boys with Monty and Lydia.

The crew looks on while Mike plays with Joseph.
Marilyn leads the family on a tour of the farm.
Mike checks the sweet corn to see if it's ready, and it is.
Mike walks the ditch looking for noxious weeds.
Michele and Marilyn share a moment with Fuzzer and Black Black.
Mike doesn't have the gator anymore, now the guys cruise in the rhino.
Alex gets out of the way so Mike can move the tractor.
Michele reluctantly provides me with a photo op. I tried to get her to do the karate kid stance for an interesting effect, but she just wasn't in the mood to look that silly.
