Strawberry Picking, Ice Cream and Petting Zoo

Yup, you read all of that correctly.  Last Saturday, 6/2/12, our family did all of the above mentioned things and everyone managed to be happy and have a lot of fun!   First, went to Oley Valley Organics to pick strawberries.  Gwen and Cole grinned from ear to ear when they found out that they were allowed to eat as many berries as they wanted while we picked.  I think they each picked a grand total of two strawberries and Gwen at one strawberry.  Both kids were interested and Cole kept chanting:  "I love strawberry picking!".  After Mommy and Daddy finished picking the strawberries we went down the road to the Oley Diner for lunch with the Brown Family.  We ate and then enjoyed some ice cream before heading outside to the free petting zoo.  The big kids had fun feeding the goats, pigs, alpacas etc. and then they ran around on the playground for a little while before we headed back home.  I love family outings because it is very nice to have Andy there to share these experiences with me and the kids and it is also helpful to have him with us.
