Sweet Berry Farm

This morning, g-daddy, mom, and I woke up with a sense of adventure and a clear calendar, so we drove out to Sweet Berry Farm. We took the scenic route which was a lot of up, down, and around.
The farm has goats, chickens, horses, and donkeys. And on this particular day, 600 elementary school kids who rode in on super cool buses and quickly took over the entire picnic area. We ate lunch in the back of an old horse trailer. I lost my juice box somewhere in the pumpkin patch. We searched behind the first million pumpkins and gave up. I should have worn a fanny pack.
I'm not kidding when I say that there were pumpkins all over this farm! There were even different colored pumpkins in bins together. I took a few minutes out of my day to reorganize some of the pumpkins for them. White pumpkins in one crate; orange pumpkins in the other. It doesn't take much to give back to the community. Pay it forward.
If you know g-daddy and mom, then you'll appreciate that we only spent $1.50 for our morning of fun and that was for two pumpkins. Heck I would have paid more than that just to ride the school bus. I gave the farm a thumbs up and hope to go back next year during berry picking season.
On the way home I practiced my ABC's over and over and over again, so I'm sure g-daddy and mom both know the alphabet now. Since they were so well behaved at the farm, I suggested that we stop by Brushy Creek Park on the way home. I slid down the slides for about 30 minutes before coming home to crash. It was a pretty good morning.
