From the Cab of a Tractor

I got woke up this morning at 7:30 because Luke was going to go put out hay. I looked out the window and saw that the sun was already starting to shine and it didn't look too cold outside, so I decided to go put out hay with my valentine... since this evening we have reservations at one of our all-time favorite places for Valentine's Day. If we got this stuff done early we could have plenty of time to goof off in Matagorda this afternoon.

Turned out to be a great day for photos.

My chariot awaits!

Luke cutting the strings.

The cows in the front pasture at my parents house fording what is usually just a ditch... but has turned into a river! But they wanted the hay so they took out across the creek! If this was Oregon Trail, their wagons probably would've tumped over!

I had to get out of the tractor to open the gate for Luke at the oats pasture. There were a few cows who thought about being crafty and running out of the gate. Luke overheard me telling them how it was going to be and thought it was really funny... I told them, "I run a tight ship around here... you won't be getting out on MY watch!"

My favorite picture of the day, taken first thing in the morning right before I got in the tractor.

Muddy tractor mirror.

The cows are pretty interested once they see the tractor and hay headed their way!

Cutting the strings is probably the worst part.

My view from the gate that the cows tried running out of.

Some curious calves first thing in the morning.

The early morning light was the best.


  1. Love all the pictures, they are great:) I think it is great you went out in the tractor with your valentine:)
