Strawberry Fields Forever

Don doesn't like strawberries. Neither do I. But what did we do today??? We went strawberry picking! Why? Rainah likes strawberries! And every little one should have the experience of picking berries. So we headed out in the morning to Krupp Farms. It's a pretty popular place to go, but wasn't too busy for a Saturday morning. It was a beautiful morning and when we got there and started picking, Rainah immediately started eating them. I don't think she actually picked any... just stood there and took them as I handed them to her. I have no idea how many she actually ate, but I think it was quite a few. We didn't pick too many since Rainah's the only one who'll be eating them, so it didn't take us long.
We went up to the main farm and they had a small petting farm with some chicks, bunnies, pigs, sheep, goats, and a cow. Rainah loved it and we got some food so she could feed them.
Then she got her first ice cream cone ever! She's always mooched ice cream from Don and I, but today we got her her very own cone complete with sprinkles and she LOVED it. She plopped right down in the grass and ate away.
We had so much fun and she fell asleep in the car on the way home. She's already eaten a good portion of what we picked, so we might just have to go back!

First of all, I have never met anyone who dislikes strawberries, and now I know 2 crazy strawberry haters that are married to one another!

Rainah looks like she had a blast :)

oh, and way to confuse the her goat food in an ice cream cone. next time you go, you know what will happen don't you?!
and is her hair getting lighter?! weird.
