my grandpa is a social butterfly. he knows a lot people in his town and likes to take us on field trips. in the past, we've been to a cricket farm and a training center where golden retrievers are taught to be assist dogs for people with disabilities. but this time, he brought us to a dairy farm.
i need to start with the story of how my grandpa met the owner of the dairy, rob, who is a dutchman just like ben. he is also a Christian and incredibly kind. rob restores old farm equipment. he got his hands on a feed trailer my grandpa built in 1963. he figured it had about a million miles on it. to finish the restoration, rob wanted a "miller built" sign that my grandpa (whose last name is miller) put on all his machines. so he gave my grandpa a call to see if he could have one, and thus began a beautiful friendship.
and a shot of hannah and lauren for good measure.
i think i have enough pictures for two more california posts: the orange grove and my grandpa's shop.
thanks for reading! happy new year's eve!
