Strawberry Picking With Maddy & Poppy

Maddy & Poppy are here. Hip, hip hooray! We have been having so much fun being together this week. We went strawberry picking yesterday in between rain showers. We are very lucky to live less than a mile from a beautiful orchard that grows apples, pumpkins, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Maddy, Poppy, Grace, Jack and I enjoyed everything about our trip to the strawberry patch - our wet knees (!), the juicy red strawberries, watching Jack pick strawberries for the first time, the strawberry leg warmers that Maddy made for Grace, seeing Jack sit in the hay, the orchard's two dogs (Mona & Voscar), spoting a convertible car parked in the field, and running through the strawberry aisles!

I love Grace and Jack's earthiness,
if that's the right word. They love nature; they love to experience all kinds of sensory experiences. And they're always smiling!
Maddy and Poppy must have savored every minute of their visit, and have delighted in this trip to the farm.
Grace and Jack are again fashionably and thematically dressed for the occasion :)
Happiness is ....

What fun this was for all of us! I loved our time outdoors between the raindrops. The strawberries were so sweet and delicious. This was a day to remember---always!
Jack and Grace are sweeter than all the berries in Maine!
How I Love You, Maddy xo

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
