Destination

The Corn Patch – or The Farm – whatever you prefer

Where the corn is more than knee high this 4th of July

and the dirt is plenty. (1 clean, one not)

And the family is awesome.

The Way Home

A little bit of rain coming our way as we drove…my 80 MPH couldn’t outrun the clouds.

Our view while driving…so we stopped for a small little session of “hope that sound isn’t a tornado; but just in case, there is a deep ditch right there.”

Never been so happy to see this town – and I am always happy to see this town.  But they had no power, so we continued.

A few trees snapped in half here and there along the way…

The fireworks stand we stopped at on the way down to grab some sparklers;

Semi #1 blown in the ditch (also our detour #1);

Semi #2 blown into the ditch (also our detour #2);

We couldn’t even go see that town…nope, denied.  We kept going.

And then the clouds got all cool

And the sunset was neato

And we made it home with a fun story to tell.  Pictures all courtesy of my kids.
