Down on the Farm

Last Saturday we got to spend a perfect Autumn day at Cousin Brian and Tracie's farm in Yamhill County. The farm is in the Willamette Valley wine country, about 45 minutes Southwest of Portland.

Someday Brian and Tracie hope to grow grapes and make wine on the farm.

For now they have carrots...

Who knew they grew underground? (kidding!)

Tracie and Susan lost in the corn maze. We fired a flare and were finally rescued.

Grapes... Always share your bounty with your husband.

Apples, pears, figs, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, etc, etc, etc...

We had a great time walking around picking and eating whatever looked tasty.

This is the oldest Black Walnut tree in the Pacific Northwest!

Anthony on the big boy swing. Tracie climbed the big tree to place the ropes for the swing, and while she was at it taught her nephew how to rappel. Is there anything she can't do?

Paul was the only one brave enough to try the rope swing.

And the tractor!

Not to be outdone by Daddy, Anthony then took a turn.

We ended the afternoon with a big feast prepared by Tracie with all sorts of treats from the garden. What a great day!!!
