Three Farm Boys...

I took these two pictures a month ago when I went to pick up the boys after a hard day of farming with dad and grandpa.  (I can be a real spoil-sport at 7pm on a Sunday night!) 
I think these are two of my favorite photos of the year, and here's why: 
I love this picture because I played around with the color contrast and I love the way the dust from the back of the combine looks in the early-evening sunlight. 

I love this picture because it's of three great guys!  I love my dad's mustache!  I love Drew's Indiana Jones hat that he wears everywhere these days!  And I love how Danny is looking more young-man-like everyday!  He is officially taller than me, too, if you were wondering!

Somebody at our house had a birthday!!!

Yep!  Big Dave!  He's 40 now! 

Here are some of my favorite Daves:
Daddy Dave! (With two of his biggest fans...)

Crazy Dave! (Probably the most familiar...)

And my personal favorite:  Cleaned-up Dave!  Hot stuff, huh?!?!

He celebrated by sleeping in an hour (thanks, Daylight Savings time!), getting in from chores in enough time to make himself a jalapeno omelet before church (poor guy had to make his own breakfast!), combining corn all afternoon (finally-- it quit raining!), and a supper of his two most favorite things to eat in the whole world:
Pork Chops and Rice, and Lemon Meringue Pie. 

Here's to another 40 years every bit as good as the first 40!!!
