We made many trips to the field this year taking suppers out in the "supper van" as Maddie began to call it. Her and Ben both loved taking out supper because that also meant getting rides in the combine with grandpa, and the truck with daddy. Ben even managed to get several rides in the tractor and auger wagon with Uncle Brad. (Thanks Uncle Brad!)

This is how Jay Dee spent his time during bean harvest while waiting for the truck to be filled. Thank goodness for technology!

This was on the last day of harvest. The guys were close to York, so my sister-in-law picked up lunch for them in York, and they sat on the tailgate to eat. We all managed to get to the field about the same time for one last ride for all the grandkids.
I also happened to only have one daycare child that day, so I brought her along. She is the same age as Maddie and loved seeing all the trucks and combine. Grandpa Royce was nice enough to let Riley have her first combine ride as well. She really liked it. And surprisingly, this is the only photo I have with Ben in it. I don't even have any combine photos this year. Guess I was preoccupied with keeping Maddie in one spot.After harvest...its cleanup time! I don't usually help with this, but I thought this year we would, so I got Ben and Maddie to help me wash the supper van. As you can imagine, that only lasted for about 10 minutes, and then they were cold and tired of it. So I washed the entire thing myself. It was a good harvest, and we're happy its over.
