We have been blessed with such a beautiful summer to date. The girls and I have been soaking up as much sun as possible and taking advantage of a more relaxed schedule.
Today we met up with some girlfriends and littles and went to one of my favourite summertime locations, the Robinpick Berry Farm. It is about 15 minutes from town and has a corn maze, petting zoo and some play equipment. It is a family run business and where we had Abby’s 2nd Birthday party.
We got there a little after 10 after a necessary coffee stop and turned the kids loose. Gracelyn loved the animals but wasn’t keen on feeding or petting most of them. It was so neat to watch Abby this year, because she was so brave with the animals and let them eat out of her hand.
Gracie and Abby were most in love with Pork chop, the pig. They giggled and fed him forever, and made two return visits.
Gracelyn also made several requests to see the “baybee goats” and fed the baby only out of her hand.
The girls also enjoyed a ride on the cow train (I was actually a little shocked Gracie went on by herself) and Abby conquered the slide that bucked her off last year with no trepidation.
After snacking on some treats and visiting with our friends, we hit the road. Naturally, the girls fell asleep on the short ride home and Gracie didn’t even wake up to be put in the crib.
Days like today remind me that I have all the time in the world to make more money and work more hours. While there are so many areas of our lives we could put more income, I cannot put a price on spending time and making memories with my precious girlies. I am so fortunate to have a career that lets me have the best of both worlds.
