Road Trip: Lennox, South Dakota

The purpose of this road trip was to go and meet Luke's relatives out in South Dakota. After being together for 8 years, I finally had the chance to meet Luke's Grandma Ruth, Uncle Steve, Aunt LouAnn, and cousins Kyle and Justin. We had a great time on the farm visiting and making trips into the small town of Lennox. I even had the chance to drive a tractor while I was there. Here are some pictures from the trip.
Welcome to the farm!
The farm house was built in 1918, and Luke's grandma has lived there for 60 years. The house was originally built by Luke's great-grandpa.

Luke finally jumped in and taught me how to park.
I was a little calmer when this was taken.

I was glad to be back on safe ground.
Luke's Uncle Steve farms both soy beans and corn.
Here is a shot of the soy beans at dusk.
