More than one person commented on the eclectic combination of people at our family's annual hay ride. Over a hundred people showed up for the event, which included pressing apple cider, dipping caramel apples, roasting hot dogs, sharing a potluck dinner, and, of course, riding on a real hay wagon (though we actually sat on straw bales). We had church friends, work friends, school friends, neighbor friends, and friends of friends. We even hosted a photojournalist student who is working on a counter-cultural project. 


  1. wow....that's a record number isn't it? Will we see more hayride photos here this week? Did the fresh doughnuts next nixed this year?

  2. counter cultural? I think of hippies when I hear that....not the Cooks! ;)
