Horse Pull / Old Fashioned Farm Day

For those of you who don’t know my parents very well, they are from the west and have always tried to keep the more laid back ways in our family. Dad used to dress in the western duds and mom used to ride in rodeos…she has trophies and everything. Well, the other day dad saw a sign for an Old Fashion Farm Day and Horse Pull. The last couple of years have been really busy and we haven’t done a whole lot of our usuall random events…but we all decided it would be great fun to try watching a horse pull. We showed up too late for the molassas making and the running steam engine mill, but the Horse Pull was great. The horses were massive and the heavy weights were pulling between 13,000-14,000 pounds. It took me a while to figure things out, but after that it was quite exciting.

They had these huge blow up slide (10-12ft) things for the kids and after walking by them several times I thought…what the heck…I’m still a kid, so I took take Ben, Abbey…we didn’t realize we were supposed to go down at different times…we ended up landing on top of eachother. It was a memorable experience.
