My Dad delivers to a company that is harvesting their fields right now and he made arrangements for Malachi to be able to ride in one of their combines! We waited until we got to the field to tell him what was going on and he was sooooo excited!!! He ended up getting to ride with Boppa for nearly 30 minutes and even got to dump a load of seed in a "big wagon" being pulled by a John Deere tractor...so exciting!!! :)
Waving before getting in...can you see how excited he is?
If you look carefully on the right side of the picture, you can see his profile. I can tell he's a little unsure, but being with Boppa makes everything okay!
While Bubba got to ride, Sapphira got to run at the next door playground. She is so steady now and runs everywhere!
Not sure what this face is about, but it sure is cute!
I see a combine! She started yelling and squawking as loud as she could and getting really excited when she spotted one through the trees.
Walking back to meet Bubba and Boppa.
He talked about it all the way home and makes sure to tell people about it when he sees them. He got invited back when they harvest the wheat and is quite excited about being able to ride again. On the way home, we asked him if he would like to drive a combine by himself when he was big, and he said, "No. I don't want to. I think I'll just be a little boy for a long time." Good plan, Bubba, good plan! :)
