Wordless(ish) Wednesday: Farm Day

There is a local farm that we like to visit where you can pet animals, ride on trains, do pony rides, and pick your own fruits and veggies straight from the ground. It's a 10 minute ride from my house so when Andy and my parents decided they wanted to go see a movie last Sunday, I decided to spend some quality time at the farm with my boy.

I lured him out of my parents house with the promise of riding a "Choo Choo" and that's all it took.

Apparently goats can drive cars here.

I asked him to put his head in the little piggy after I demonstrated so he humored me. That's love.

Picking some green beans that we ended up cooking for dinner. They were SO yummy.

I did find lots of leaves and stems, and not so many green beans in Carter's bag.

Lots O' Lettuce, ripe for the picking.

My favorite was the strawberry picking time.

I didn't have to worry about Carter mixing stems and leaves here, he definitely knew what to go for. Although he couldn't distinguish a ripe strawberry from a rotten one, or a not-so-ripe one. Mommy would graciously accept his pickings and then weed out the uglies when he wasn't looking. That's what we do, right?

Carter wondered off up some hill lined with avocado trees.
In 80+ degree heat, I had to go chasing him, camera, strawberries and all, only causing him to run faster.

I'm linking up as always to the Wordless(ish) Wednesday link-up on The Paper Mama.
