{Day trip to Oklahoma}

This past Saturday the Hall family traveled to Oklahoma to visit family.
It had been a while. Like Fall of 2010.
Long overdue!!!
The trip wasn't too bad, except for Mason and that whole carseat thing.
Oh and we got a flat tire.
But the boys changed it like champs.

We visited for a while at Nate's Grandparents house.
Mason put on quite a show!
Always a ham.

Then Frankie & Paula came by for a visit.
They offered Mason a ride on the "Big" tractor.
I think Mason was putting his shoes on before they even got out all of the word, "Tractor".
He was so excited.

We loaded up in the trucks and drove to the Ranch.
Mason was so anxious he could barely stand it.
The boys were in one truck and the girls in another.
But Nate told me he said, "Look dad a BIG Barnnnnnnn" and got so excited.

He could barely contain himself once he saw what awaited him behind the barn door...

They wasted no time and climbed straight up into the tractor.
Mason was in tractor heaven!!!

Frankie lifted the fork implement on the tractor and Mason's jaw dropped.
Nate and I both saw it at the same time and then looked at each other.
There is nothing in this world like seeing your child so excited.

Frankie let Mason drive a little on his own {since they were in wide open spaces}.
Then he took him to lift some hay bales.
Mason loved every single second of it.

It's so pretty out on the Ranch.
Makes me want to live here. {kind of}
I know Mason would love it. He's our little country boy.

After tractor rides we went to see the 4 new baby cows. 
They were adorable.

Then we went back to Papa Johnny's to visit a little more before we had to head back to Texas!!

We love getting to visit family and can't wait to go back.
Hopefully this time sooner rather than later!
