Back to the old Okerson farm for today's blogging expedition.
Something tells me that my 2006 GMC Envoy will not be the center of pictures and running someone's imagination crazy with stories any time in the future.  Do you ever wonder what our kids and grandkids will have to treasure from our current days?  An iPhone, Nintendo DS or Wii that no longer work? 
I hope that someday when I have kids, they enjoy walking the old farms and thinking back to all of the history.
Many happy memories,

My curiousity and imagination always get the better of me when I get to walk amongst history. 

CEO and I went camping this weekend on his family farm.  His great-grandfather was the original homesteader.  I can just see him bumping along the fields on these old wheels.  Coming home from the fields just in time to put the horses away and make it to the dinner table while the food is still warm.

Back then, air conditioning was a breeze while you road behind the horse and if you were lucky it stayed fresh.....if you know what I mean.

They were tough people back then, but also had short, hard worked lives. 

Where does your imagination take you??

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.

Stay tuned for more farm news....

We are heading out to brave the cold this weekend on a family camping trip.  I could not be more excited.  This will be the first weekend in a VERY long time that my hubby and I are taking the time to ourselves with our kiddos.  We are going back in the day for CEO.  He is overly excited to walk me through his childhood memories on the farm he grew up on.  It got me thinking about our past camping trips and how much fun we have together.  We have been on the go for months now with working on the house and volleyball, so this weekend away we go to enjoy us and our puppers.
Happy Trails to all.......
