I forget sometimes how diverse and beautiful the scenery is here in Southern California. Drive 45 minutes out in any direction and you will find yourself in a completely different environment. Last weekend we headed to Tanaka Farms and participated in a walk to raise funds for the farms in Japan that are still rebuilding from the devastation of the 2011 tsunami.
It was an awesome day in so many ways. Now that the girls are 4 and 5, excursions are exponentially more fun. They can go longer stretches without napping (and the inevitable meltdowns that go with being tired/hungry are coming less and less frequently). Man, that’s a game changer. To be able to enjoy something at a leisurely pace, that’s something I can really get used to. Another highlight? Eating fresh picked vegetables and fruits. This coming from me, the girl that never ate her veggies and even convinced herself that she was allergic to salad (long story, maybe I’ll write about that one of these days). I already have plans to visit again soon. As we were leaving I noticed that they host watermelon tours in the summer (and strawberry picking in the Spring and pick your own pumpkin in the fall!) Have any of you done these tours?
Happy Sunday friends and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
