Strawberries at the Farm

We went to a really neat farm while we were in California. In fact we liked it so much that we went a couple of times and I would have loved to have gone again. There were lots of fields with different fruits and vegetables to pick, animals to feed, fun little rides, different play areas, giant slides, a singing chicken show and yummy fresh snacks to eat. It is such a blast! I think Daisy would have been content to pick fruit the entire time. Once she figured out how to do it she couldn't get enough. She loved grubbing on the fresh strawberries and didn't mind the juice pouring down her face.  Her hands got sticky, her clothes got dirty and she enjoyed every minute of it and so did I. 
Hudson and Maddie were so sweet with Daisy. I haven't seen them in almost a year and a half and they have grown up so much since then.
Cute little hands cradling a precious berry and a messy little face...proof of the fun being had.
Melissa and I have been friends for about 8 years now and I am so thankful for her and her family.  It is such a blessing to have such a great friend to visit when I visit California.  We spent a couple of days at her home and I so enjoyed the fellowship.  Miss you Melissa!  She snapped a few pictures of me when I was pulling the kids around in the wagon.  I made up some silly stories to tell the kids to try and keep their interest while we walked around so I was being as animated as possible but, I was also cracking up watching Melissa snapping away on my camera like the paparazzi. LOL.  Fun times. 
Isn't this a beautiful horse! HE was by far Daisy's favorite animal at the farm.  Well, him and the peacock.  She learned how to imitate the sound a peacock makes almost perfectly!  Pretty funny.

It makes me look forward to our trip we are leaving on in a week. The kids are looking forward to some time with grandma when we go on our yearly visit to see my family. They are excited to go on a roadtrip however I'm not looking forward to the three days it will take to get there. I'll talk to you soon.
