Hay Ride

Sunday, at Smolak Farms, after picking peaches with loose guinea fowl, in the hay ride, before stating "beeen tractor" over and over again (the hay truck was pulled by a green tractor), a kiss between Zach and Lilia followed by several minutes of hand-holding.

Hopefully they won't hate me for posting this picture in a few years (photo credit, I think is Josh's).

Below, they examine a field of pumpkins, before heading to the raspberries and the goats.

House and self painting

Spent Saturday of the long weekend at a barbecue chez Howells, who had prepared a fantastic toddler activity of painting a pre-constructed cardboard house with finger paints. The kids seemed to prefer brushes to fingers, but nonetheless enjoyed getting a bit of paint on them, some more than others.

More pics of various children here. (Disclaimer, there's a bug in sugarsync with sideways photos that I've given up on figuring out.)
