I mentioned awhile back on this blog that I'm wanting to document more of the "simple" and "everyday" things on this blog....Yep, I'll keep you posted of some our "other" things in life (such as the LAST POST on the visit to the pumpkin patch), but overall, I'd like to keep this post "toned down" a bit.
So, with that in mind -- I think I've also mentioned before just how much Luke is fascinated by lawnmowers. He especially likes push mowers since that's what Daddy uses. But, he does like other lawnmowers as well.
My grandparents had a farm located a little over half an hour from here....basically between the towns of McPherson, KS, and Galva, KS (for you local readers).
My grandfather passed away not quite two years ago, but my grandmother is still living. She no longer lives on the farm as she definitely can't take care of it. She now lives in an assisted living in town.
But technically, she still owns this farm. My dad and my uncle do some of the basic caretaking of it (the house is cleaned out), and the actual farmland is leased out.
My dad (Luke's Papa) had been asking me for awhile to bring Luke out to the farm for a mower ride....Nope -- nothing real extravagant, but it certainly was right up Luke's alley.
Let's just say that watching Luke's excitement of a simple thing like a lawnmower ride was completely worth the drive.
As you scroll through these photos, take note of one thing....Can you guess what I'm talking about?
Did you see it?
Luke's hand NEVER left the cap (it was my dad's cap he had on). It was the funniest thing to watch -- just how protective he was of keeping that cap on. Let's just say that my dad NEVER once had to stop and pick up a cap.
Good job, Luke!
And, because I did mention that Luke really likes push mowers -- he did get to see on that day as well....
Ah....the simple joys of life!
**A Little Note: This event actually took place almost a month ago. It's funny because now, whenever Luke sees a riding lawnmower, he talks about Papa.
A trip back in time
