Bill and I are thoroughly enjoying our new status as empty-nesters. Today we drove up to Massacusetts to attend the Cranberry Harvest Festival. If you are in the area, the festival continues on Sunday.
I've always been curious about cranberry harvesting, so it was fun to watch it happen.
In full speed, it would only take them about 20 minutes to fill this truck!
There is fun for the whole family. Check out this little cutie.
There is a lot of sand involved in cranberry farming, and they let the kids climb this giant sand pile. We passed on the helicopter rides. No SPIE rigging!
We had a great time, and we're looking forward to our next adventure.
P.S. We got our second letter from Pete this week. He's doing really well in Marine Corps boot camp. He has a few leadership billets already. He really likes his senior drill instructor. It's amazing that Pete can see the humor in almost any situation. I'm so proud of him!
