Across the country Home Depot puts on these building clinics for kids that are easy, fun and free. Laura has been taking them for years, but I’ve never been able to join them before. Really fun event. Today they made tool boxes.
It’s nearly impossible to get Berkley to look at camera and smile. Sadie Piper on the other hand sees a camera out of the corner of her eyes and she’ll usually face it and pose.
Here is the finished project. They also gave them free lego kits to build at home.
Santa was there and offered up candy canes.
Just seemed like the right response to stranger handing out candy.
Then we drove into the farmland in South Manhattan so I could show Laura one of my bike routes. We took a wrong turn and found this crazy pumpkin patch slash farm thing. There is a deal in from May to August where you pay a set price and then come every week to get a basket of fresh fruit and vegetables.
They also had a giant slide.
There was a Pig with cow friends, at one point one of the cows was peeing on a chicken while they all ate pumpkins. I told Ubuntu this and he thought is sounded like a dream for Joseph to interpret.
Berkley found toys and just went to playing all by herself. In background you can see the billy goat towers. They didn’t have any this day, but the goats climb up there.
She’s just weird.
Here you can see Berkley going through the Great Depression as a young wife.
Of course there were Roosters there, I still want to bring one home.
Riding a hay bail.
Driving a tractor
Eventually we caught one
And they also had this fancy Handicap Parking Spot.
Also on the trip we found this house built into a hill. Not exactly a Hobbit Hole, but could be made into that.
