Before we can think about vacations, barbecues, and berry-picking trips to the island, we have to deal with the once-a-year H word first.
Since summer doesn't begin until July 5, haying season begins on July 6. You never know how long a stretch of dry weather will last around here, so it's best to jump right in.

We had seasoned "pros"...
|Tanner packing a rogue bale that fell off the truck|
I may or may not have been responsible for the hay bales jumping off the truck. Oops.
|Son-in-love, Ben, showing he has a farmer side ~ even though he denies it!|
We had 1 who graduated from rolling the bales, to being able to lift the bales.
|Matt finally weighs more than the bales!|
We even had a first-timer. Poppa let her drive...
...but Maddie's real passion was honking the horn.
Which she did every 5 seconds.
The Mister built a nifty hay stacker with supplies he found around the shop. It made easy work of getting the hay up into the loft.
As the sun sets on another successful hay season, we can finally start the resting and relaxing part of summer.
Well, at least until Friday when our blueberry season officially begins.
It's a good life.
