Mother's Day on the Farm

After waking up very early on Mother's Day (June was so excited to celebrate, I'm sure), a cup of coffee and opening cards and gifts, our little family headed to Schnepf Farms to enjoy the Peach Festival. JP and Kai met us there bright and early and we enjoyed some fairly comfortable weather before it got too hot. 

Let me tell you, this place has SO MUCH to see and do and explore. We're already planning on coming back in the fall when the weather is cooler and we'd be able to spend more time wandering. First we hung out in the kid area. There was a coop with a few beautiful peacocks in it.

There was a track made of bales of hay that Kai loved riding through.
And all kinds of things for June to climb up and crawl through and slide down.

Man, June these days! Basically she is little Miss Independent Wiggly Wander Woman. She didn't want to be held at all, she wanted to walk but didn't want to hold our hands, so she would just charge off into the crowd and leave us to scramble after her.

My boss and her husband also happened to go to Schnepf on Sunday! We did quite a few things as a group, including riding the train little train over the grounds and through the orchard.

After a long wait in line, we got our pancakes, peaches and sausage. Everything was delicious!
We also took a hayride, which is the usual mode of transportation to get out to the orchard to pick your own peaches. By the time this rolled around, though, it was getting hot and we were more in the mood to just keep riding. So we stayed on and I managed to take about a billion pictures of June being so adorable.

The others went off to ride some roller coasters but June doesn't quite meet the height requirement, so we headed off to the petting zoo.

It was such, such a wonderful day. I am so happy to be a mom, to be able to celebrate this day with June and her dad.
