Took my son to Pioneer Power Show in Yakima Washington on Saturday.  The show had all types of tractors, demonstrations, and a tractor pulls.  The event is held as the Central Washington Ag. Museum. 

 

We had a great time looking at all of the tractors and visiting with people.  One of our favorite places to visit was the ice cream tent.  The ice cream is turned by steam engines which are power by a 1906 stream engine tractor.  It was a big hit with people because it was 95 F.

The demonstration included a saw mill, thrasher, and wheat cutting.

This is the ultimate motorized recliner. It's driven by 2 hydraulic motors and turns just like a zero-turn lawnmower.

I figured this show could use some free advertisement and maybe get some more people interested in attending it next year. 

It was only 95 with a breeze and 20% humidity.  Yakima's moto is "Yakima, the Palm Springs of Washington."  It's on the eastern side of the Cascade mountain (Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainer are the 2 most famous mountains) range.  It has a lot of cherry, apple, and peach orchards.

My son wouldn't stop talking about it all night long when we were visiting our friends.  It created another great memory for both of us.  Loved it for that reason more than anything!
