country living

On Friday I went to Eddisbury farm to do a bit of fruit picking.  The farm was beautiful and I had a really great time.  I think the kids really enjoyed themselves and knew exactly which ones to pick and which to leave behind.

All of them gobbled up the yummy sweetest largest raspberries I have ever seen.  I think they ate more than they kept but isn’t that the point of picking your own fruit with children?

I think my favorite bit was sitting down and watching them eating apples with the trees in the background- carbon footprint 0 (except that we drove 45 minutes to get there so uuum I guess we did have a bit of a carbon footprint but lets just forget that).

    I used to love doing that as a kid. That last picture is just idyllic isn’t it? Squidge is going to have such fab childhood memories.
