I've been a little jealous when I've read about my friends visiting their near-by farms and berry-picking or veggie-picking. I thought, "I WANT TO GO!!"
So, last week, my husband took our family and it was SO wonderful. The farm was an hour away and we didn't pick any vegetables...and I'm pretty sure you almost can't grow berries in HOT Tucson, but we spent most of the time in the pumpkin patch and had a BLAST! It felt so good to be outside and alone, with each other!
Our little grump (a.k.a. Gwendolyn) complained the whole way there, instead of resting, but she enjoyed being carried by us (her favorite thing) and actually passed out on the way home (VERY rarely happens).
Oh, and the ERGO...BEST purchase EVER!!! Very comfortable and easy to use...even with little chunky ones.
YEAH for the Lord's creation...and for the leisure time to enjoy it!
