Heading to Colorado

I didn't post the day after getting home with the tractor, or the rest of this past week about the tractor. I don't know if it was jet lag, or the wine, but I felt miserable the following day. 2 days later, I still had a tiredness and soreness behind my eyes. Iwas better by Thursday but still tired. The weather had changed about every day this week, besides the traveling that we had done, and I think my head couldn't keep up with it. I finally took some Sudafed, and the ache went away.
The tractor got off the trailer, but it was too muddy to drive it around. I hope to have pictures up sometime in a week or 2. I may not have time this next week, as I'll be preparing a vendor booth for the Nebraska Horse Expo in Lincoln, March 11-13.
Yesterday, we drove another 7 1/4 hours to Colorado to visit Sara, Jake and Makenzie. We are bringing 2 year old Makenzie home with us on Monday and her mommy is coming Thursday. They are planning on helping me at Expo. Wish hubby and I luck with a 2 year old in the house again. It's only been about 22 years since our 3rd child was that age!
I wished we would have stopped and got better pictures of the Sand Hill Cranes. They were every where there was a pond in central Nebraska. Huge flocks!

You guys are on the road so much, you just need to be truck drivers so you can make money at it! I love the pics, particularly the one of the antelope. That came out really nicely! They are so hard to photograph, at least that's been my experience!
