The sun finally came out

I have been feeling uncharacteristically unchatty recently (blogwise, at least), but I was inspired by the (finally) fantastic weather to take some pictures of my weekend:

Friday I took Ada and Monkey Boy berry picking with Debbie and her son.

Notice that with a tub of strawberries behind her,
my child chooses to snack on dried cranberries.

chicken and berries
Answering that long standing question,
the chicken crossed the road to get to the berry-filled wagon

I think I love pigs because they appear to smile

On Saturday Chris, Ada and I went for a walk at Smith and Bybee Lakes, which has paths that are about the perfect distance for toddler attention spans.

Can you believe a week ago people were referring to this as Junuary?

Later we ate hamburgers on the back patio, after Chris and Ada read a few books on her porch.

On Sunday we celebrated Father's Day with Ellen and Jiro. Two of my favorite dads, grilled food and rum drinks - who could ask for more?
