Family Day at the Farm
A while ago John, Jack, and I packed up at headed 40 minutes north to Underwood Farms which is one of Jack's favorite places. It's got a ton of animals, hay stacks, a mini-train, tractor rides, and pick-your-own vegetables and fruit. The summer is a great time to go if you want to pick-your-own because there are so many great crops to choose from. We picked tomatoes (so so many kinds!), zucchini, squash, peppers, cilantro, and, of course, STRAWBERRIES. Jack's favorite. He and his daddy worked away picking all the best strawberries. Jack loved to make sure to remind us "not the green ones!"
Of course, Jack enjoyed far too many samples while picking. But I guess they'll never know.
After picking it was back to the main part of the farm. Jack refused to ride in the wagon...he just wanted to push it.
Then it was time for playing on hay towers, in tractors, and on swings.
So much fun! Of course, no trip to the farm is complete without some bouncy house time. Still Jack's favorite.
I love family outings like this. Can't wait to go back in October for the Harvest Festival and their giant pumpkin patch! (I'll be enormously pregnant but I'll still have fun with my little guy...as long as someone else carries him.)
