What a beautiful day it was, in Idaho, this 4th of July. We enjoyed a good, long weekend. My guy was home, and would be home for the entire weekend! My son was also home, but he had to work most of the weekend, so he missed out on some of the fun...
We ventured out to the little town of Melba, Idaho, about 30 miles from home...
We found a bunch of real pretty TRACTORS, in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes...
Now, what would a 4th of July celebration be without a tractor pull? This was my first time at witnessing such an event.
Plenty of folks found it lots of fun to be out in the dust, thrown by the gigantic tires of the tractors as they dug down into the soft, resurfaced ground, pulling "The Mule," a pull-sled sponsored by good ol' John Deer.
Like the tractors, folks came in all shapes and sizes.
The littlest of folks caught my lens and I couldn't resist getting this shot. One of the kids had something the rest of them wanted.
Melba was lots of fun... There was a rock climbing wall, an antique car show, arts and crafts, hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks.
Before we arrived, they had their patriotic parade down the center town.
Going to Melba truly was a lot of fun!
Back home, we had our dinner and got ready for FIREWORKS! At dusk, we took the motorcycle and found our town's aerial display. We haven't ridden the motorcycle in over a year. There's just something about the wind in your face when riding.
