Ran, rain go away! We had an unusually wet May here in Portland, making our outings soggier than normal. But that doesn't stop us from playing outside. Kellan is much happier with a bit of outdoor time every day, so we keep our rain boots close to the door.
Thankfully we got break from the rain over the weekend and we went strawberry picking at one of our favorite local farms. It reminded me that fruit picking season will be in full swing very soon. I can't wait! This is a great way to show kids where some of their favorite foods come from. Many farms offer tours or have you-pick seasons for various fruits and vegetables, so do some research online on farms near you and take advantage.
In addition to strawberries, we also brought back some gorgeous peonies we cut ourselves. So now we have colorful blooms to look at inside when the weather isn't so cheerful outside.
