On Saturday, we went to the Fall party at Oaklands Farm where all the McIlvaines live (about a mile down the road from where I grew up.) The highlight of Lydia’s YEAR is riding around in the barrel cars. Many of the McIlvaines are welders, and the barrel cars are homemade. Seriously, that is BADASS. We also visited the chicken coops, and petted the turkey. And made apple cider. And rode around in the vegetable wagon, towed behind one of the antique IH tractors on display.
Kate’s a McIlvaine. It’s a formidable family.
