As parents of an overly active, curious 3-year-old, we’re always looking for family-friendly activities. And, being a nerd, I like to throw in a little education when I can.

Mission: Tractor Daze at the National Agricultural Hall of Fame.

You couldn’t have asked for a more family-friendly event. Kids of all ages explored Ag Hall’s outdoor offerings on a beautiful summer Saturday, with plenty of room to roam. We rode the narrow-gauge Union Pacific train around the pond, then visited the hatchery, general store and train depot, all full of period artifacts.

In the blacksmith shop, we watched area residents Chris Dennis and Melvin Rice reshape a handle.
