Patterson Farm

Today Susan and Kathy brought the girls, and Zack, up to pick strawberries at Patterson Farm.  This is a great place for the kids as not only are their strawberries to pick but there is a petting zoo, playground and ice cream.  We started off picking the strawberries.  Some of us (Samantha) did more eating than putting in the basket.  Virginia on the other hand was pretty serious about finding the good berries.

This picture is too adorable.  I think it will have to be printed and put up at my office at work.

Susan brought baby Zach.  Boy is he getting big and he is the spitting image of his daddy!  He was a bit cranky.  We were just carrying him around.  I held him for a brief (and I mean brief) bit.  He started crying pretty good and I passed him off like a hot potato to Kathy.  It was very stressful.  Susan did eventually go and get the stroller and he was a happy camper the rest of the day.

Next it was off to the petting zoo.  Both girls fed the animals through plastic tubs.  

Pretty awesome huh??  

After a stint on the playground, they'd worked up an appetite for some ice cream.

I don't know about them but I had a blast today.  They really are fun little kids to be around and are both very loving.  It's always a good time.  I love them to pieces!  Can't wait until Zach is big enough to chase the girls around (and to not freak me out when he starts crying).

P.S.  I must say that Blogger has upgraded and it is a million times easier to post!!
