One of the local berry farms - and there are dozens (over 70% of all the raspberries and blueberries in the US are raised in our county) has a special Raspberry Festival and we took our grandsons.

Ben in his car seat with his "punkin" berry picking basket. He has used it for the Easter Egg hunt, and now berry picking - it is his favorite bucket.

There were barrel-train rides, wagon rides, ice cream sundaes with raspberries on top - face painting, balloon animals, good fruit and vegetables to buy and just general fun.

Jahn took his favorite bunny on the barrel-train with him - my grandsons seem to confuse their holidays!

Jahn getting his face painted - he was some transformer or something like that - Grammy seems to not know about things like this.

Ben preferred his ice cream "just white" - also Grammy's favorite!

Two boys riding on the hay wagon. The farmer stopped and picked us each a big bunch of carrots right from the fields. He washed them off and we snacked on the way back to the berry sheds.

Jahn ate 7 carrots.

Then there was the raspberry picking - Ben loved running up and down the rows with Grampy - we did get some berries in his punkin.

Jahn got his balloon just before time to leave.

The day was perfect - sunny but not hot at all - and everyone had such a good time.

You had said that you were going to participate in Thankful Thursday, but I notice that you didn't. So I was just wondering if you've changed your mind? Please let me know because I have you on the list.
Hugs, Rhondi
