My children are finally living the kind of epic childhood I wanted them to have. Blueberry picking and picking out corn and strawberriesfrom the many quaint farm stands dotting the Oregon countryside fill up many of their days.
Of coursethere is still television, video games and root beer floats, but life is definitely different, in a very good way.
I love that they are experiencing living in a beautiful, wholesome environment.
They get to hang out with winery dogs like Odin, a Great Pyrenees, over at Yamhill Valley Vineyards.
They help out in our vineyard.
Their experiences are unique, like the rocket festival at a friend's vineyard, Coeur de Terre.
Planning the launch...
Of course one of our rockets included shooting pigs into space.
Mornings might be spent feeding fish at winery fish ponds.
It wouldn't be summer without cotton candy at a major league baseball game.
Farm eggs enjoyed in all kinds of meals.
Early evenings exploring our property.
How are you keeping busy this summer?
