Last week my family went to Barefoot Farms, in Dover, Pa. It was a nice ride, kind of outside of York, but still within enough distance that we weren't driving all over the county or anything crazy! It seems like the farm is tucked away nicely from busy roads and streets, and from our family living so close to urban communities, I do forget how beautiful PA is in the summer! We arrived there and quickly realized that there was a storm coming, but still were able to pick strawberries, eat some ice cream, stand in front of the enormous fan and let the kids stick their heads in the giant strawberry figures. I loved the country atmosphere; it was almost tempting to sit on the porch swing along with Sophia, but I was not sure whether we were technically even allowed on their porch! I loved the house though, because it reminded me of a bed and breakfast. They sell herbs from their garden and have U pick gardens for strawberries and raspberries. Here are some fun pictures from our day!
Sophia's face when picking the strawberries :)
I loved the sky that day when the storm was nearing us.....
I am a sucker for close ups and little details!
I got so many pictures of her and this fan. She didn't know what to do with it at first. I guess it was just so much bigger than she was, and she hadn't gotten close to a fan so enormous before. I am sure she was wondering why water was leaking from it! After some convincing from myself, she got used to it and played with it and got very wet.
Annnd then there was an ice cream and sandwich stand! Heaven! Can I discuss vanilla ice cream sundae, topped with strawberries? If I don't order something with chocolate, you better believe, I will be ordering something with fruit on it! Daddy got mint chocolate chip and Soph got a chocolate sundae.
Also- the adorable signs were so fun!
How cute is she on that bench?
one fun photo to end the post ;)
