On the spur of the moment, we decided to visit the family farm in Illinois for the 3-day weekend of the Fourth of July. Quite a radical decision, since it's 850 miles away and takes 14 hours by car.
Three us drove and Two of us flew.
My FIL was an "Ad Man" in Chicago and purchased Illinois farm land about 35 years ago. It really has become his legacy. We are so grateful to have Pioneer Farm in our lives. Here are the living areas, which were built over many years.
Pioneer Farm -Main House
Annex (garage with apartment)
It is a dog's heaven~ no leash, a pool, and lots of room to roam.
Here is coco's visit:
She learned to swim in the deep end
She learned to float
She learned to wait for us on walks
She inspected the tractor
She wandered through my MIL's prairie
She inspected the corn fields
She did an in-depth inspection of the flooded areas of the soy beans
She helped do the dishes
She enjoyed a bone in the front yard
She contemplated life on the front porch
Then she slept all the way home
I wonder if she thinks it was all a dream.
Good girl coco!
