And I wax nostalgic

Last weekend was perfect. Every since I got pregnant, I've been thinking back to my childhood with happy thoughts. Even more so now that Plum is here. We went out to a U-pick farm on Saturday to pick tomatoes. The season is almost over and I just wanted a few more 'real' tomatoes in my belly. This farm was so much like where I grew up. It looked the same with a big, beautiful garden and chickens making there clucky-sweet chicken noises. We chatted with the farmers who were really nice people and called each other Mom and Dad. We paid for our produce in a box by a scale where you weighed it yourself and just put in the right amount. Before we left the woman told me to make sure and make lots of memories with our new daughter. We ended up picking 7 pounds of tomatoes and several pounds of grapes. The next day we made and canned salsa and ended up with 12 jars that we felt so proud of.

The new Mei Tai carrier works great for cooking!

  2. Keep 'em coming...I love seeing every single one of the gratuitous cute baby pictures...also love the pictures of her equally cute parents doing everyday things!

    I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your tomato u-pick experience. And...with all your lovely canned salsa, you'll be able to enjoy that experience over and over again when you eat the salsa.
