Back from the tractor show

Well vacation is over and it is back to work.  We got back monday and had lots to do the last couple of days, funny how we have so much work getting ready for vacation, during vacation and when we get back home huh!  Anyway it's all good!! We had a wonderful time and the boys loved camping.  This was Bruno's first tractor show and I think he had a great time.  Buster has been goin with us since he was a pup and he is 10 now so he is quite the experienced camper.  LOL  they enjoyed seeing all the people and love to lay on our bed to look our the front of the 5th wheel and see everyone and everything goin on plus they all go for rides on the golf cart around the campground.  

thursday night was our annual tractor cruise where we get a police escort into town and drive down to the beach.  This year I think they said there were 60or so tractors? the last couple of years it was well over 100 tractors and doodlebugs too.
It was windy and really cold outside that night so maybe that kept a few away.  This was the view  from the front of our H tractor.

A dear friend and his son in the cruise.  He just got this pretty Allis Chalmers done in time for the show.  LOVE that orange!!  GREAT JOB!!

On sunday a few men from the American Legion came over and did a special memorial with the boy scouts for 9/11 and that was very touching!  Seen alot of teary eyed folks attend it was something special.
