Husker Harvest Days

Tuesday, we had the chance to finally make it over to Grand Island, Ne, to experience Husker Harvest Days. Christian has gone the previous years we've been here, but this was the first time we had the opportunity to go. Husker Harvest Days is a HUGE, by huge I mean it sits on 1,000 acres and has 500 to 600 venders there, farm type expo that is all outdoors. It was rather impressive...we were there for 3 hours and only made it around about half of it! It's full of seed and chemical companies, car delerships, tractor dealers, and just about anything else you can think of related to agriculture. They each set up amazing information booths that the public can come and learn more about the products they produce. I wish I had taken pictures from up on top of a tractor so you could get the idea, but I wasn't that on top of things. Anyways, it's a kids paradise...especially for little boys who love hats...every company gives out different types of items that advertise their company and hats tend to be a very popular item! We had lots of fun walking around looking at the tractors and cows. I didn't really know what to expect, but I was really impressed. Next year we will plan on getting up there earlier so we can spend more time before the boys poop out on us!

The company Christian works for's booth (there's was pretty low-key compared to some of them...I'm sure some of them spend 10's of thousands of dollars on their booths!)




Carson taking a second to pose in one of the tractor tires! This was just before he decided to jump in a puddle and get mud all the way up his pant legs...crazy boy!!



This is my FAVORITE picture! He was posing so cute!
