Back On The Farm........

We love the Farm, South Dakota and Grandma & Grandpa! We took a last minute trip back to the Farm. You can't beat a $29 flight on Allegiant Air-SCORE! What a beautiful time of year to visit and to get out of the desert heat. I tell so many people about the farm and I just can't describe it in words, so this time I hope to capture the feel and vision of the amazing Dakotas on film.

The Wonders & Likes of Visiting the Farm.......

This is the road that I love to run on leaving the house. I love breathing the fresh air and racing the cows.


The corn fields tracing the road way, almost ready for harvest.


Seeing equipment and gadgets set aside for retirement on neighboring farms & wondering the history they once knew.
Watching hard working Farmers at work.
Little girls who make my passion possible by letting me practice with her & our surroundings.
The wide open spaces & autumn colors popping out in the fields and trees.



Plethora of veggies and fruits for canning, jamming and eating fresh from the garden. ( Lond's is helping Grandma with the wild plums for jamming)

Little boys who bring so much joy.

Little girls who play contently and are clean for this very moment.

The dirt that makes a little girl happy to dig in and run freely on. This is what London looks like the moment she walks out the door to play... she plays hard!
The road I run on that leads me back to the farm where my little bugs are waiting with Grandma. The road that takes us to the railroad tracks on the four wheeler that London asks to ride to. But best yet, it is the road that takes you away from the crazy city life and back home for my cute husband. Enjoying moments like these with with his parents , my in-laws & Grandma & Grandpa Lueck! More moments to share, coming soon......

AMAZING pictures!! Love them. As a fellow "photography enthusiast" I know how rewarding it is when you take some AWESOME pics...but it's even better when people let you know they appreciate the shots you captured--I just wanted to let you know they're great! What editing software do you use? Looks like you can do some really fun stuff with it!

Marsh your pics are looking good. Londs is getting so big and is such a cute girl. Glad you were able to get away for a little vacation. The farm looks so beautiful, you are lucky you have it to escape to and to learn how to can, jam and all those fun things.

Hi Marsha! We just ran across your blog. Your family is so cute! It seems like forever since we saw you guys. We're still out in Overton and it would be fun to catch up some time. Check out our blog, we just added boy #3!

Wow! It is so gorgeous that you forget about how hard it is running a farm. The Thompson's own 3.5 acres in Placerville and it's non stop. So pretty and a great place to visit! :)
