Yesterday we wanted to find something fun and outdoors to do with the girls. It just so happened that the local weekly paper had a great suggestion. A local farm was having it’s Mater & Tater event. Sounds like fun so off we went….
The girls made cars out of potatoes that we intended for them to race. But the heat and a Brynn meltdown prevented that part from happening.
The girls also got to decorate a T-shirt with potato stamps. They both had a really fun time designing their own shirts. More than that they are really looking forward to wearing them to daycare tomorrow.
After that we decided it was time to pick blackberries. Everyone had a fun time searching for the big black ones. We picked just under two pounds! We came home and the girls were more than happy to dig into them after lunch. I froze about two cups worth so they can enjoy them again in a few months when it’s cold out and we talk about how much fun it was to pick them ourselves.
I foresee some apple picking this fall!
