A Saturday Away From The City

Yesterday we went on a rural adventure. Gretchen & I spent the day with my gramma & her boyfriend. It was so gorgeous outside & of course, my little baby slept through most of the excitement.

First we went to the farmer's market where I bought some tasty Stickling's organic dark rye bread. Have I ever mentioned my love affair with rye bread? It's continuous & delightful, but that's a whole other story.





After the market we went up to Hiawatha for breakfast. Gretchen woke up long enough to eat while I ate. The lake was thawing & beautiful.



After breakfast we traveled just north of Lakefield to McLean Berry Farm's Maplefest! The goats were rather adorable if not completely gluttonous. Either way, very cute & very friendly.



I took Gretchen on her first wagon ride...



... which she slept through.

(Thank goodness she'll have this photo documentary of her life -- without it she'd never believe we did anything.)

There were so many little one's there -- even a couple younger than Gretchen. It was also fantastic to see so many dad's babywearing! Out of the at least 20 babies that I saw -- 1/2 or more were being worn by dad. I love this.



Hopefully we will return to the berry farm later in the season when there are more berries to be had. I've never had the "pick-your-own" berry experience, but I think this might be the year for it. We're also definitely going to head to a pumpkin patch this October. I really love spending time on farms.

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. Yesterday the weather was gorgeous, but today we are spending a very sleepy, blah, rainy Sunday indoors. I can't complain about it being 10 degrees though!

Spring has sprung in the Kawarthas!

Happy Sunday, my friends.

That wagon ride looks brilliant! And oh - berry picking! Last year we went strawberry picking and it was fantastic! You can sit in the field and eat and pick and it's so much fun. Incredibly enjoyable. :)
