May 2006: Memorial Day: Tractors
Memorial Day 2006 just happened to fall on Owen's 4th Birthday. Memorial Day for the Johnson Family means a day on "the estate", as Mike calls it, his sister Kristin's home. They have a lot the great things a family should have, including Owen's favorite thing: a tractor and trailer. He pretty much sat in that thing all day, mostly staring at the parts trying to figure out how they work. Kristin introduced their family's new favorite activity: getting dragged by the tractor. Of course I tried it. Lots of the "adults" tried it. It was sooo much fun. A great ab workout and massage. The tough part was to stay on while our nephew Stockton tried to peel your fingers off the back of the trailer. Here I am with my sister-in-laws Jenny and then Lynnie. Karen was the queen though; she held on with one arm and flexed the other.
