SNOW GOOSE PRODUCE
we headed up to mount vernon for a day trip before ivan headed back to az to grab his work truck + trailer along with the few belongings we have. i thought it would be great to get in one last trip before he gets back to full time work. the great thing about washington is there are so many beautiful places so close by. we have the best of both worlds, minutes from the big city + beautiful forest in our backyard. it feels like a constant adventure.
blackberry bushes run rampant here. they’re on every corner. its funny to me to see people just walk up and grab a handful. although i don’t think they are completely in season until next month. but you can definitely find a few ripe ones.
jack was so proud of himself and his blackberry. we’ve gone over all the poisonous berries and i hope i’ve taught them not to just pick + eat anything they find. they have to ask first.
if i hand enough room i’d buy every one of these. just ask ivan. he says i have a basket hoarding problem. i’d say its borderline a problem.
another ice-cream stop. why is it that everywhere has ice cream up here?
i’m not sure she actually ever cares about the flavor. she picks based off color.
somehow he always manages to get a hold of my ice cream and won’t give it back.
ava loves to wander off. this time it was to look at all the flowers + plants. i promised her a garden when we are settled in. her love for nature makes this mama happy. she has such a pure heart.
i love a good farm stand. i’m always drawn to them. the vibrant colors + shapes. really beautiful.
how cute is this little basket? perfect size for little hands. jack looked so cute carrying one around too. mt. vernon is really pretty. a lot of beautiful barns + adorable houses. i told ivan i could live there. its removed from the city but not too far. we are having so much fun exploring our new state. washington truly is one of the most beautiful places i have been to.
henri is still doing great! we’ve talked about starting him in a grass sport. i’m a little hesitant but his asthma doctor assured me that arizona grass pollenates year round where washington only does for 6 weeks. i’m pretty sure thats why all the grass is dead here. that means it shouldn’t affect him at all. i’ll take it and i know he’d love to play sports and not have his asthma flare up.
