We made it out to the farm this weekend, all four of us...a sweet little family outing that left us berry-stained, bellies full and rather exhausted.
Vijay 'helped' us pick raspberries and blackberries, although they all ended up in his belly, and our carton remained empty! I eventually had to shoo the boys off to the tractors so that I could properly fill our carton.
I'm still trying to figure out what to do with all our bounty- we've been having peaches and raspberries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don't really have the time or energy to can, and the kitchen is just a bit too hot for that, anyway. Although...my mouth waters every time I think about peach jam, so we'll see...
On the way home, both boys fell fast asleep in the car. My husband and I looked at each other with a mixture of pride and exhaustion. A successful outing comes with a price...we were both in bed by 8:30pm, a minute after we put the boys to bed!
p.s. I wish I had sweet baby pictures to show you, but I was wearing my
little one, and taking the pictures...so alas. But I assure you, Vik
was along for the ride, and although he slept soundly strapped to mama's
chest, he quite enjoyed his first taste of the farming life!
