My wife was gone from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon at her youngest sister's bachelorette party, so I spent the weekend hanging out with my boys. On Saturday, us dudes spent a few hours at my parents place in southern MN. Here are a few pics:
My Dad got a go-kart for the grandkids. Oh boy. But all the kids LOVE it.
These 2 pics show about 1/2 of the sweet potatoes my sister and I dug.
Henry and his cousin Bree running up to the combine in my Dad's field.
The 4 grandkids all rode with Mark for a 1/2 round. Thanks Mark!
Mark (and the kids) heading down the field. This is the "home" field,
and that's the farm where I grew up on the left.
GOODIES FROM MOM: 3 spaghetti squash, a honeydew, lots of apples and gourds,
some onions, some sweet potatoes, and some regular potatoes (not pictured).
More goodies in the cooler: peas, green beans, brocolli, brussels sprouts,
a cut up honeydew, LOTS of carrots, and a gallon of fresh apple juice.
The car ride back from Mom and Dad's was QUIET.
A "before and after:" a few hours after we got home, I cooked up some of the sweet potatoes!
