Quick Picture Update

We visited another farm on Monday and had so much fun! So, of course, I have to share a few pictures. The farm only had a few animals (bunnies, a chicken, goats, a donkey and horses) but it was a blast! I didn't post all the pictures, it was surprisingly hard to get good pictures of her and the animals.

This photo does not capture her true feelings about riding horses.
She hysterically laughed the entire time, except when I took pictures.

Playing with Ambree.

Watching the other kids ring a bell non-stop for 30 minutes.


And then today she dressed herself for the first time.

Inside out...

...and backwards!

That's it for now. I told you it would be quick!

Sweet Berry Farm

We visited Sweet Berry Farms again this year. Ramona had a blast picking (and eating) strawberries, or "Dobbies" as she calls them. This farm is great! If you have never been, you pick your own berries, there is a petting zoo, homemade ice cream and lemonade...pretty much just some good clean fun! Well, except for the clean part. I recommend bringing a change of clothes for the kiddos. After Ramona ate her weight in strawberries, she was pretty filthy. Here are a few pictures of our field trip.

This is the first time I have ever seen a goat climb a tree.
Is this normal?

Ramona's favorite part was feeding the donkeys strawberries. Hopefully that is not bad for them, because they couldn't get enough!

And now, I have a million strawberries in my freezer.

Ramona's 2nd Birthday and Easter!

Ramona is TWO! She's getting so big...SO fast. We had a blast at her birthday party. It was monkey themed, of course. I made her cake again and it turned out great! With only a brief incident when his head almost broke off. But icing covered that nicely. She had so much fun surrounded by friends and family...and did I mention a bouncy house?!? She jumped on it for three days straight. Thank you to my Mary Kay lady who loaned it to us. Here are a few pictures from her party:

She loved her tutu and wore it for the rest of the party.

Then, a couple of weeks later, it was EASTER! She found all 48 eggs. Yes, we went overboard. But, it only took her 10 minutes to find them. We have video proof. She had tons of fun hunting for the eggs, but had a little trouble understanding why she couldn't eat all the candy that day. She had a valid point that the candy was her's. I had no argument for that, I just ended up hiding the candy out of reach.
