Blackberry Farm

Yesterday morning, I woke up to Elsie's plea, "Let's get up, Mommy." I shuffled myself out of bed and down the hallway while the pleas continued..."I'm thirsty, I'm hungry, I want waffles." I made my way to the kitchen, opened the freezer, and turned to find the stove clock staring me in the face. 10:34 it said. I can't even believe we slept in that late. What I can't believe even more is that Claira slept until 11:54! Yeah, I checked her breathing a few times.

When we were all finally up and ready for the day, we met Stefanie with her girls, Lydia and Mya at Blackberry Farm. There are trails to walk on, and the girls always enjoy endless rides on the carousel, ponies, train, and wagon. It was a great afternoon for it...the sun was warm and the breeze was cool.
