Harvest {Family Vacation 2015}

While we were in Kansas the kids got to experience their first wheat harvest. It was a brief harvest, due to some cold temperatures last winter, but the kids loved riding out to the field to deliver meals and of course riding with Papa in the combine.

a lasting image from our time in KS…my heart in a wheat field
Amber waves of grain…ready for harvest
The kids loved learning how to extract the seeds and chew on them…they may have eaten other parts too ;) On the last night of harvest Sawyer was riding in the combine with Papa. Mema went to pick him up and bring him home. Sawyer's response, "No Mema, we have more wheat to cut!" So he went around one more time ;)
