Okay, so my title was a little sarcastic. This has become something we do regularly, but it's really not all that much fun. We farm some ground over in Jasper County that has a lot of rocks. They manage to work themselves to the surface, and we have to pick them up so they don't damage the equipment.
We cover the field like a grid and load rocks in the bed of the Ranger and the loader bucket of the Puma tractor.
I don't know how many loader buckets full we picked up.

Laura got "promoted" to Ranger driver after her finger lost the battle with a spade. We made a trip to Lafayette to the urgent care for 5 stitches. When we got back to the field, Laura stayed behind the wheel of the Ranger.
Laura's finger is all healed now, and she is doing just fine. When we were finished with the field, Dad took us out to Dairy Queen for supper and blizzards.
