Tractor Mac - Way Back

It has been a long, long time since I posted Way Back Wednesday. This seems like a good time to post a before and after of my boy, Ben, at our popular area fair. This fair is a annual fall tradition. And the last couple of years we have been pulling the kids out of school a little early to make it even more special and exciting.

So the 'way back' part relates to a red tractor which Ben was very excited about back in 2003 (he was 2 1/2 years old) because the tractor looked just like the tractor in the book Tractor Mac. In 2003 we took this snapshot of him standing in front of Tractor Mac.

The same as every year, Tractor Mac was again set up outside the building with the cows, sheep and llamas. We had Ben, now 8.5, pose for another picture. I guess we've been feeding him well. Look how this boy has grown.

So we did our fair thing....got food...went on lots of rides....looked at some animals. I had my Canon ELPH and I can't stand the quality of the pictures compared to my other Canon. But here are some highlights.

The whole crew posing

Luke and friend Jessica on the bumper cars.

The ride Chris went on. Jack went on earlier and wouldn't go back on with his Dad when he wanted him to. Chris was right in the front.

Chica and Dad on the merry-go-round. She wasn't much of a daredevil. She wouldn't even go on one of the moving horses.

Jack, Ben and Jessica on "Niagra Falls"

Coming out of the haunted house.

Jack being a trooper and taking Chica on the train.

Milking the cows....

Me and Chica.

And one of my highlights....the Belgian horses pulling competition.

All in an afternoon's fun.
