Picnic at the Farm

Last night we had our first meal at the farm.

Ethan wanted to drive the tractor from our house to the land so we could be more set up to start doing some work. He hooked up the hay rake to the tractor, took off, and we followed 45 minutes later. It was pretty good timing. He arrived about 5 minutes before we did.

Ethan raised the loader a bit, and then we all sat down for some sandwiches. Afterwards, we took a bit of a walk around the land. Caleb had a great time poking the ant hills, I enjoyed scouting out the blackberry and raspberry patches, and Hannah sang and held flowers while Ethan carried her.

It was a very enjoyable evening. The only thing I could have done without was all of the ticks that we flicked and picked off. Everyone had at least one left on them when we checked at home. I will gladly take a few ticks each evening, however, in order to be able to enjoy more evenings like we had.
