Berry Picking Bliss Pt. 2

We had so much fun at Swanton Berry Farm last weekend that we decided to join our friends for another visit yesterday. It was too much fun, so I had to share.

When we arrived, the sun was struggling to make it’s way through the fog and was offering the most gorgeous light.

Little Miss Aoiffa had a wonderful time.

The boys worked hard.

Dressed appropriately for berry picking!

Here’s the crew. Up to no good if you ask me.

The sun came out just in time for our picnic. After the picnic, Ki was the star of the show.

Can someone tell me why we bother buying toys?

Even Aoiffa got in on the fun.

We hated to leave, but plan on returning next week again. You can never eat enough fresh berries!
