Popcorn Farm

This weekend we all took a drive to a popcorn farm in Benson, IL where I did a photo shoot for my sister's magazine. It was so nice to be away from the city and experience farm life for a day. The highlights of the day were being up close and personal with the pigs (I was actually in the pigpen!), having a warm lunch in the field with the family, and riding on the combine with the 75 year old Grandma- wow.

John's mom was in town for the weekend and was able to go with us to the farm. We all had a really relaxing, fun day. It's amazing to me that a quiet peaceful place like this is just 2 hours away from Chicago! We all felt like we were in Iowa, not so close to the city!

Memories of that sunny, fun day still sweeps over me. It was the BEST!!! And the popcorn was delicious, too. Grandpa gets to visit you soon. I am jealous! XOXO
