Mother and Son on the Farm

Mother and Son on the Farm, originally uploaded by carolfoasia.

We spent the day with my mother-in-law looking at the trees that were planted on land the family owns. She fixed us a wonderful lunch (clam sauce on angel hair pasta with homemade french bread and homegrown green beans). Then, we walked up to the trailer that my dh lived in while they were building their present house. Then we looked at all the trees that were planted on the "Back 40." My dh arranged for forestry referral for the land so that the property taxes wouldn't be so high. The state financed the planting of 6,300 trees.

This was my favorite picture of the day. My mother-in-law hiked up and down the hills on the property with us. She will be 79 years old in June, and she outhiked us all!

We came back to the house and visited and ate homemade chocolate pudding pie.

I love my mother-in-law.

Oh, Carol, I really love the most recent photos here. The rich green tones in "Farm Creek" make my Pacific Northwest heart happy. And what a blessing to have such a precious relationship with your mother-in-law; may I, too, be out-hiking the younger generation at her age!
