A little boy and girl have headed to the farm to visit their grandparents, but it doesn’t take long for them to get into mischief! As kids will be kids, these two end up stepping in manure by accident, trying to carry a huge bale of hay by themselves, spooking a hen while looking for eggs, peeling apples all wrong, and lighting a very smoky fire. At every turn and with every problem, Grandpa and Grandpa could react by reprimanding the kids or doing the job themselves, but they don’t—they patiently and kindly help their dear grandkids, and everyone works together to get things done.
