Tree Hunt 2010

We went this Saturday to cut our Christmas tree, and Cory was along for the adventure. Beautiful sunny day, 2 of three involved had cameras, and the pine smells oh so good! We headed off to one lot of Wiggen’s Tree Farm to find our perfect tree.

Playlist for the drive, a combination of Jonathan’s ipod on shuffle and his tweaks dependent upon the mood of the adventurers. I thought this would be entertaining, especially after thinking about it later in context to our adventure.
