Until December 23, 2010, I was a city girl. I had daily lattes, shopped a little too often, relied on public transportation, and rejected the thought of ever living in the country. When my husband and I decided to leave it all for West Texas to farm, life changed completely. Read my “Farmwife Confessions” to learn about the transition.

When Russell and I lived in DC, we got a fairly steady stream of visitors who were passing through the city and wanted to see everything in a day or two. With so many world class museums, all of the monuments, great day trips, fabulous restaurants and bars, and lots of cultural activities, it was impossible to tell our visitors how to see everything in just two days.

Well, we just had our first visitors to West Texas. It was a slightly different experience.

My dear friend Nicole and her husband came to visit while making the drive from Florida to California. In the week leading up to their visit, I racked my brain for things to do with them. And this is what I came up with:

Tractor rides.

First, they went up the field:

And then they came back:

And then we toured the White House and ate at a really trendy Indian food restaurant. I mean, we toured a dairy and went to the local diner for steak fingers. That’s almost the same right?

    Oh my word I love your blog! First off thanks for commenting on mine, because I *adore* hearing from my readers, and now I found your blog, too! I will gladly send all of my rain your way, and seeing as I am a city girl myself, I would also gladly take a tractor ride if on a farm. 🙂

    We successfully managed to make that tractor cab look small haha. Must have been the steak fingers…
