Strawberry Pickin'

Yesterday we went to Kings Orchard in Plantersville. It was a very lovely drive. I decided to take our own personal wagon to make things easier on me. Thye do provide the small old fashion red wagons if you don't want to bring your own. You pick either a 5lb box or 10lb box to take with you for pickin'. The nice things is you get to decide how much you want to fill up your box since they weigh your fruit at the end anyway. After deciding which box you make a somewhat long haul out to the field of strawberries! It was so beautiful to see the rows and rows of fruit. I was amazed by how much fruit, vegetable. and other foods that they are growing on their personal property. It is a big property so they have the room and staff for it! It was very inspiring for this very inexperienced "gardner." I don't think gardner is the right word if you have only done it for 3 years and are still learning to keep your vegetation alive! We are back in pots for awhile until things bet better. Sorry to get off track! My son loved picking the strawberries! He did not want to leave. Here are the pictures from our little adventure together! The pictures are not that great since I was trying to keep up with my active 2 yr. old!

He was really upset about leaving and having to wait to eat his favorite fruit! lol

Birthday Party

I know it has been awhile but I have been one busy momma with birthday party planning and all. I had family from out of town come just to see my lil man turn 2! My brother and sis-n-law came all the way from Montana. Anyway, the cake turned out good. I was even told that it tasted good. So, thank you Daicia and Carly for giving me the courage I needed to do something I always wanted to do! We had a great time just visiting with friends and family. I think the kiddos enjoyed the egg hunt as well. I was told that the blue icing on the cup cakes made the parents think of the smurfs(lol). So, here are some pics from the big day. Thank you to my friend Molly for taking them for me!

This is my favorite picture of that day.

A fork is very important for an egg hunt! lol

Lil cuties!

The Elmo cake!

sweet boys

The big gift!

Having the party at the clubhouse with a park area close by was GREAT!

Of course balloons are a must at a party!

I really enjoyed the day! It was so much fun watching the kiddos play on the park area, eat blue icing, hunt for eggs, and seeing friends gather around just because of my son. That to me just makes my heart sing with JOY! Thank you to all who helped me make this day a great one! God bless!
