Father's Day preparations

Fi and I went to a paint-your-own-pottery place for our traditional Fi-made Father's Day mug. This was the third year in a row! This year I pretty much just sat and watched, and got more paint when she asked. Haha. She had a great time.
Funny, someone there commented that she looked like Shirley Temple, and I just shrugged it off....but then as I sat looking at her, the resemblance struck me. I'll have to find a picture to compare and post it, just for fun.

Strawberry picking!

We had a nice adventure last weekend...we found an organic strawberry farm and went picking. It was a bit of a drive, but it was a beautiful day and a beautiful area...Pungo, in Virginia Beach. Fiona was a pro this year, after practicing last year. She looked for the red ones and got really excited. She'd say, "Look! This one was waiting for me to pick it!", or "Look! Somebody already started eating this one!" We left those for the bugs and the birdies. After we picked a couple of buckets full, we went wandering around the area and had lunch at a little pizza place, where a nice man gave Fi a quarter...she's saving it to put in the carousel outside the store here.
