Harvest 2010

Harvest started early this year. My dad said it's the earliest he can ever remember. Two weeks ago we drove up for his birthday, to sit in the combine and grain truck with him.

Happy birthday dad!


This is totally his element.



Driving the grain truck.


Riding in the grain truck.


Getting ready to get in the combine.


Big tire.


We squished into the cab. It made for a cozy ride.






We saw 4 deer run out from the rows. Can you spot them, in the top of the picture?



Dancing while the corn unloads.



I love, love, love harvest. Somehow hours go by while you're riding in the combine, and it only feels like a few minutes. The fall weather, the smell of the dry stalks, the togetherness...perfection.
