Jess sent me a text this morning that said, “am I going to get to see you this morning”. Unfortunetly, I had plans to walk with a couple of my mom friends, so no, we weren't going to walk up to see him this morning. We did however, plan to walk up there this afternoon. After the kids napped we headed out. When we got there Jess and Jim (the other hired hand that does the picking with Jess) were just sitting out in the middle of the bed on their picking machines. Bob, the back hoe driver, and Kevin a dump truck driver, were standing on the dyke just visiting. Hmmm, what was going on? We walked down the dyke to talk to Jess. When we got there, he jumped off his machine and came over to the edge of the bed and climbed out. He told us that they were just about done picking this bed, but there was a tour coming through and they wanted to see the picking process, so they were waiting for the tour to show up. So Jess had a few minutes to play with the kids.
They headed back to the shed with the picking machines and the picking for the day was done. We headed back home.
We didn't get to see a lot of harvesting going on today, but the kids got to play with daddy out on the marsh and that was worth the whole trip up there. They had so much fun. It was nice that Jess had an unexpected break in his day!!
