At long last, summer has arrived. The last 2 weeks have been down right perfect, and O and I are trying to get out as much as possible!
A week (or so) ago, we joined our friends Chloe (4) and Olivia (21 months) at Fox Hollow Family Farm .
It's a private home/farm that is open for special events and limited hours during the summer as a play area for kids. I hear their sponsored Easter egg hunts have a wait list.
The farm is out in Issaquah, WA, one of my favorite mountain towns. Can you imagine if this were your daily view?
This is the view from the backyard. Rumor has it salmon run down this stream during peak season.
The farm had these adorable John Deer tractors for kids. Chloe and Olivia took off for these immediately. Andrea (their mom), and I were cracking up. After Chloe got bored and went to the next best thing, Olivia tried to drive it herself. This baby #2 has no fear, and she keeps her mama on her toes!
Chloe 'planting' and digging in the vegetable garden.
This garden makes me 'green' with envy. I do dream of this some day. Until now, I'll have to keep attempting my lettuce and zucchini vegetable starts. (You'll notice they haven't been featured on the blog.. that's for a reason).
Olivia chased these chickens for 20 minutes. I don't know why it's so fun to watch toddlers toddle. She's got a quick toddle though!
Andrea snapped this pic of our little O. This is the first time I let him play in the grass, and he loved it! His nails were caked with dirt and he had the time of his life. If only I would have let him eat the grass...
Here's to my little boy becoming a little boy. I am sure I'll need to let go of some of my germophobia..
