Steamed Up!

The ice cream!!!
We found this cool old jeep with something special in the window!!
There is a parade and every loud tractor that came by Hayden got excited and pointed!
We got to ride on the really cute little train!
This weekend Larry thought it would be fun to take the kids to the "Great Steam Up." They do this every year in Brooks. We have gone before but it hasn't been since Amelia was about 6 months old. The boys love it and are so excited to see all the cool old tractors, trains, trucks.... But I think us girls were there for the old fashioned ice cream. They make it right there with steam powered ice cream makers. More then anything it is really yummy!!! It is always very loud but fun. At least this year it wasn't 100 deg while we were there! I think my dad and brothers would love this place too. All the cool old farm stuff. One guy told us it takes about 2 1/2 hours to get the tractors all steamed up to pressure so they will drive! Pretty amazing! Now they turn a key and off they go! Aren't we lucky.
