Ok, so it's not too much of a flashback...only about a month. David and Devin entered the lawn tractor pull at our county fair, and I'm finally getting around to blogging about it!
Devin had lessons on the tractor and he was ready to pull! He was a little bummed that only single cylinder tractors were allowed to place, but they said we could pull with our 2-cylinder tractor just for fun. You should have seen the other tractors! We were the only people there with a bone stock tractor that you could actually use to mow the lawn. Others there had dedicated pulling tractors with special wheels and tires, engines, etc. We got a lot of comments from older men who said their sons started pulling with a JD 318 just like ours. :-)
Devin pulled 2 times and David walked along side to help out if Devin needed help. He didn't really need help since our tractor isn't all souped up. The other kids needed their dads to push the clutch pedal in when they stopped pulling.
Then David pulled. I love this picture below...love how Devin is running along with David.
And I love this picture. It was a long night but totally worth it. Devin had a blast and really wanted a trophy. It's too bad they didn't give trophies for "Best Actual Stock Tractor". Hehe.
