Strawberry Fields

Last week Clara’s preschool class had a field trip to pick strawberries. Clara thought it was pretty darn awesome.

After a quick hayride, each kid got a small basket to fill up with any ripe berries they could find.

The trip actually got delayed a week because the strawberries weren’t ripe enough yet. There were still a lot of green berries, but it made the hunt for the red ones more fun. Plus, there were weird mutant ones in there too. Woah.

For Clara the strawberries were really secondary to getting to hang out with her pal Sam.

So it was fun to see their budding friendship with our own eyes.

I mean, c’mon. How cute are they?

They probably would’ve stayed out there all day had we not had a class picnic starting back at the farmhouse.

I’m not sure if this was a “this is so much fun!” and “I don’t want to leave!” face. Either way, it perfectly captured the trip.

And as if the berries weren’t enough, there was straw to play in. Maybe the next field trip could just be to a haystack…

We all enjoyed strawberry smoothies when we got home too. Yum.

Every Girl Deserves Her Own Wind Machine

I don’t know why I love this video. It was a fairly ordinary moment (it was hot in the car, so we rolled down the windows). I guess it’s the first time we’ve done it since Clara had any hair to speak of so it was a whole new experience for her. I love watching her go from being slightly confused by it to totally loving it – especially somewhere around 30 seconds in when she gets all “shampoo commercial” on us.

Atta girl.
