Tractors and animals are what most people think about when they think about farms. That's what I mostly saw when I photographed the recent Touch-A-Tractor event hosted by the Kane County Farm Bureau.
Tractors, a calf and combines were all on display for kids and adults, who maybe aren't around farms all that much.
But my interest piqued when I saw a tire swing out of the corner of my eye. It was so great to see kids enjoy the sunshine and outdoors as they escaped for a small moment and swung on the tree.
