Elizabeth had a "sortie" to Ferme Drouin today (bouncy castle! tractor ride! animals!) and it was supposed to be one of the coolest days of the week (read: not over 30C) so I decided it would be a good day to go to a farm of our own to pick strawberries.
Grandma J came over bright and early and Matthew, Amelia and I drove to Rideau Pines. We were able to borrow a little wagon to carry Amelia's car seat, which was very convenient. Matthew was thrilled to get a ride on the way to the strawberry fields, since the cart wasn't yet full of strawberries.
He was a surprisingly helpful strawberry picker and we soon filled our baskets without any serious complaints. Amelia slept through the entire picking time. She woke up just as we were leaving and was THRILLED to discover baskets of strawberries had materialized right beside her personal chariot. She refused to get out of her car seat, instead perched there helping herself all the way back to the marketplace.
