...to the company that employs my husband, 2 of our brothers-in-law, my retired father, and my retired father-in-law - John Deere!!!
"I will never put my name on a product that does not have the best that is in me." -John Deere
The company is going all out and truly cherishing their employees in helping them celebrate their 175th birthday. Today was the celebration for the branch of the company where Neil works. The food was great! The activities drew my kids in so much that they didn't want to leave - bouncy houses, cotton candy, crafts, snow cones, carnival games, popcorn, etc.... and we didn't have to pay a thing!! It was one of the fanciest birthday parties we have ever been to!! We all walked away feeling blessed to be part of a such a wonderful company, who not only works their hardest to put their best into products, but also cares for their employees. Here are some pictures from our celebration today.... (note - the blurry pictures.... it was sprinkling when we got there, so I purposely left my camera in the van for fear it would get poured on. We had our phones with us though to take pictures, although not the best quality)

Happy 175th birthday, John Deere!!!
