Strawberry Picking

This past weekend, we met the Ramby's at a place called Froberg's Farm to pick strawberries. It was so pretty and the boys really seemed to enjoy carrying their buckets and filling them with berries. You'll notice in the first photo that Aiden and Blair seem more interested in the mud than the pretty greenery surrounding them.

Aiden has recently shown a lot of interest in mass transportation. The second he hears a plane or train, he starts looking for the source. In this photo, Aiden is saying "Where'd it go?" in reference to the plane we could hear, but not find.

And this is normal, right?

Also located on the farm is a farmer's market. They have huge amounts of fresh produce, jams, pickles, nuts, fried pies and homemade candies. We bought two strawberry plants ($1 each) and some produce that we needed at the house. Apparently they have a resident cat. This cat was so tolerant of noise. He just kept smacking his tail as I tried to get his attention. I didn't know if he was friendly, so I didn't let Aiden actually pet the cat. Man did he want to though.

When we were done at the farm, we headed to a barbecue place down the street that Chris and Alexa said was amazing. We had passed it on our way to the farm and were already interested in checking it out. Turns out we got our chance sooner than later!

The Ramby's were right. It was awesome barbecue. I got a brisket sandwich and sweet potato fries. Travis got a brisket platter with beans, potato salad and cole slaw. I LOVE barbecue and I really love BBQ sauce in the south. It has a lot of vinegar in it, making it much more tangy than it's sweet northern counterpart. Yummo! There is a BBQ restaurant opening down the street from our house. I really hope it's good because it is conveniently located less than a mile from our front door.
