My Nephew & Tractor Tires Make for Lots of Fun

This weekend I took my nephew Jake to his first big farm. Yep, this is the same nephew who learned so much about farming when we did the Flat Stanley adventures last year. He’s given me blog fodder for a long time to come, but I couldn’t wait to share a few photos at least! These were all taken as we “helped” a friend refuel a couple of tractors so they’d be ready for the coming week. I’ll put a couple of my favorites here…. then more in a slide show. :)

      It was like great playground equipment to him (since the keys weren’t in it, I agreed to fun & games). :)

    What a perspective! Kind of frightening too.

      I think he was surprised by how big they were too but it didn’t worry him long! You can see it in his smiles!

    Cute nephew! It’s amazing how big farm equipment tires are – and frustrating, when they take up the whole road and I’m trying to drive around them.

    Yep, those are some huge wheels! Our farm isn’t big enough to have one of those.
