The Western Farm Show was this weekend in Kansas City, Missouri. Did you attend? Or did the snow, ice and/or cold keep you home?
It was beginning to look like we were not going to be able to attend either. The snow came in on Thursday and lasted most of the day blanketing us in a lot of snow. Seth started blading that night because he was due to the Farm Show early Friday morning. Gpa finished up on Friday and even bladed in the pasture so that he could unroll hay for the cows. This makes it easier for the cows to eat and gives them a place to lay down so that they are not right on top of the snow.
With Seth gone and school cancelled, the kids and I hung out, played in the snowed and hoped that the roads would be cleared so that we would be able to keep all of our weekend plans. We were able to make it to the bull sale on Saturday, so that meant that we would then make it to the Western Farm Show.
The kids and I have never attended. I know, I can not believe it either! Seth has been the past four years for work, but it just never worked out for the rest of us.
The kids were not for sure what to expect, but I think they enjoyed the day. A highlight was the escalator. Yes, it really was. Apparently I need to get the kids to a mall/convention center more often.
We did stop in and see how the guys were doing at the Burrus Hybrids booth. Saturday was a very, very busy day for them and the show in general. Sunday was slower, but still a good day. Many of the Missouri customers were in attendance and know to look for the guys and the popcorn that they hand out.
If you were able to get to the Western Farm Show, what was the highlight for you?
Blessings to you,
