Leaving Minnesota, and entering South Dakota...
We didn't do much interstate driving during this leg of the trip. Consequently, our garmin landed us on a dirt road. Kickin' up the dust...
Now entering Nebraska. I loved riding on the "back roads". Stopping was so much easier. Of course, that made our day much longer...we didn't arrive in Colorado until many hours later than we expected.
On the next day, after sleeping in a bit, we went out to the Yuma Dairy. Mitch's cousin Jeremiah gave us a tour.
Kathi and Tirzah looking into the tank that holds the freshest of fresh milk...
In the milking room. Love those cows! What's that smell???
We got to see a brand new baby calf.
Obadiah was all tired out from the tour!
Jeremiah showed us some of what the cows eat. It was VERY interesting. A lot of good science here. I was impressed with how much thought goes into the entire process.
This is the room where the milk is stored until it is picked up by the trucks. There are 3 tanks in here, Caleb is standing on one that is through the wall.
A very, very old rocking horse. Many grandchildren have been on this one!
I left the room when Obadiah was on his back, and I came back to find him on his tummy. No one will admit to helping him, so I can only assume he is strong enough to roll over both ways!
It was SOOOO hot there. Grandma doesn't have air conditioning. Tirzah laid herself down in front of the fan and fell asleep!
In the evening when it was cooler we went back into town to play at the park.
Kathi helping Tirzah.
Eden and Caleb are dragon riders.

Can you find all of them (minus Obadiah)??
Grandma bought us these great shirts as a gift!
Out at the farm...
