Mike’s parents own a large chunk of rural land about 45 minutes from us. While it is called the “Pea Viner” land by some (yes, there used to be a machine there for separating peas from vines and pods), it is known by all of the grandkids simply as “Grandpa’s Farm”. Mike’s parents don’t actually live and “farm” on it, but it has become the place for most family outdoor adventuring – whether it be shooting bb guns, riding 4-wheelers, or paddling around canoes.
The combination of blue skies, purple mountains, brush and reeds, combined with kids having such great dirty fun makes taking pictures impossible to resist – I generally come home with 200 or so. Thank goodness for living in the age of digital photos.
