Father’s Day 2012- Q-town

This year Father’s Day was slightly different, because hubby had to work, so we decided to split up the celebrations on two different days.  It was so nice to be able to celebrate all day at both parents homes on two separate days.  It is an hour between my parent’s home and hubby’s parents home, so when we go to either it is typically an all day affair.  On Saturday we were in Q-town celebrating.  Because we had two days of celebrating, I have a lot of pictures to share- did you expect any less?




First thing we did was get on the “tractor” as little man says, and ride. A few weeks back we had a really bad storm come through the area and a tornado spun off it on the farm. Thankfully not a whole lot was damaged in the storm, but there was a HUGE tree that was uprooted.  I have heard about what tornados can do but to actually see it in person was pretty amazing.

Headed to check out the tree.

I’m telling you this thing was massive.  The root-bed had to be at least 30 foot tall.

Scale picture for you, they are around 5’7’-5’9’…nothing compared to the roots on this bad boy.

We had to get a family picture in front of tree.

She was amazed at all the dirt.

And it quickly became yummy in her tummy.

After we explored the tree for a little bit, we rode over to check out the garden.  Daddy is explaining to little man that the peas he likes to eat are growing right there.

This is what you do on a Friday night on the farm!  Fun times Smile

Then we played in the corn for a little bit, it was a bit too much “children of the corn” for me. 





Playing in the fields are always fun and it makes for a really pretty sunset.

Baby girl was enjoying the sunset so much she pulled up a seat for a good view.

Little man got to pick his first peas, he thought it was the coolest thing.  We told him in a few years he will not think it was that cool.

On Saturday, we hung around the house.  Played in the pool and enjoyed great company.

Before we headed home, Daddy got a chance to swing the babies and just soak them up!

That is a proud look on this daddy’s face!  Makes me smile so big Smile
