Matt started checking the bird traps at Strawberry Farms again at the beginning of the month. The girls go with him almost every afternoon. But Wyatt and I usually stay home. Besides the fact that it would be a little cramped for all 5 of us in one golf cart - he usually naps later than the girls do and when he wakes - he just wants to play and EAT! On Sunday, however, it just so worked out that Wyatt was rested, full and happy when it was time to go. So he and I tagged along.
It was a gorgeous afternoon. A little crisp with the wind, but clear and sunny. We took two golf carts - which meant I drove one with Wyatt in the front pack. The girls thought it was hilarious that it looked like Wyatt was "driving." We had so much fun. I forget how nice it is to get out in the open - where you can smell the sage brush, listen to the birds, feel the sun and wind on your face....and not hear a television or phone for almost 2 hours! Very rejuvenating! Maybe this should be our Sunday afternoon ritual. A great way to end the weekend.
My pictures don't quite do the beauty of the place justice. Tonya - everywhere I turned, I kept thinking to myself "Oh Tonya could take some amazing pictures here!" You'll have to go check it out for a photo op sometime. Great natural scenery and backgrounds. Anyhow - here's a slideshow of our excursion. Loving the rattlesnake warning sign.
