...While the Sun Shines

Friends called last week, with hay in the field and a storm on the way.


The boys are up for an adventure, especially if food is involved.


Time to load up...


Little hands work too...

... somehow Hans looks doubtful.

If they can't lift the bale, they can roll it to the truck...

... while bigger hands load the wagon.

And some watch the show.

Do you think they can?

First load, almost ready...

... room for a few more bales.

And a quick nature break.


Time to head for the barn.

A sharp eye on a blind hill.

Reason to hurry...

.... to get it in the barn.

Bales in one door, kids in another...

... and slowly, the barn fills.

Back for more...


and getting some serious attention. ;D

One more ride to the barn... 


...one more sharp eye, watching out for us...

,,, one more ride back to the farm...



... and one more beautiful sunset, before the storm.

WOW - what a cool afternoon! I love farms. Getting all that hay in was hard work, and good job on getting it in before the storm hit! It is amazing to see the snow on your mountains. We don't really have mountains here, so our summers are completely snow free - not a sign of it until October!

I shared this post with the girls. Years ago we had friends with hay fields who "hired" them annually to help bring it in... You post brought back fond memories for them!

I LOVE this post! The farmers around here talk about times when friends have surrounded them and helped in a pinch. That community is beautiful!
