Thanksgiving 2007 Part 2

The Chattertons have owned this land since the 1800's. This is the "big hill" where Ryan spent many winters sledding.

Christian was anticipating his visit to the farm for weeks and he wasn't disappointed. Grampy took him for mulitple tractor rides. He's still talking about it and has been playing with his tractors since he got home.
Ryan's dad has a business restoring antique tractor. He has a ton of tractors. You could check out his website http://www.chatstractors.com/ if you're interested.
Christian loved "two doggies" and they seemed to love him. "Two doggies"
Ryan's Uncle Bob is on the right. He invited us to his farm so that Christian and his cousin Gracey could take a pony ride on Beauty.

Isn't it great to have a farm to visit? We grew up in the suburbs but my aunt had a farm and it was so fun seeing farm life in action. Glad Christian has that too. :)

What a cute little boy on such a big tractor!! He is so good to spend that long in the car without fussing at all. My kids should take notes . . .

I am so glad the trip went well, you had fun and you made it home safe and sound. I thought of you a lot all weekend!! What a brave mommy you are:).

what beautiful land! I'm sure the older Christian gets, the more he's going to love those visits! And how cool are the tractors??? My dad would love that--he enjoyed old tractors and my niece inherited his!
Great pictures!
