Pickn' Strawberries

Last Saturday, Gracie and I went to a farm by our house and took a strawberry tour. The tour consisted of being pulled by a tractor while we sat in the back of a wagon and the tractor would stop every once in a while and we got to eat fresh organic fruits and veggies pulled directly from the fields. I actually learned a lot such as 90% of avocados come from CA which means I think those of us who live here should get a discount for those yummy things. :) At the end of the tour, we got to pick strawberries and eat as many as our tummys could hold. It was such a blast and Gracie kept saying more, more. She ate so many that as we were leaving, she let out a loud burp! I can't wait to go back for the watermelon tour!




Gracie tried the celery which surprised me as she doesn't care for celery


Yummy cilantro


The carrots were my personal favorites

Fun!!! I didnt know you guys did that!! Mia would have loved that!I wish I didnt have to work so much-- ugg!!

My boss just schedueled a psych meeting on that monday 5-11 and I am trying ot get out of it beucae I was going to play hookie so Im gonna have to rework some things but I plan to be there.

I was thinking that maybe before it gets too crazy hot that you guys all come out to my sister inlaws farm-- Amys Farm- and we take a little tour. It would be fun for the kids andthey get to feed a baby cow a bottle. They have a petting area and get to pull vegys from the garden. It would be a lot of fun-- just really dirty- it is a working farm. I will email everyone about it.

Love the pics!!
