Strawberry Picking

One of the things we were excited ¬†to do this Spring was go strawberry picking. ¬†A lot of my holiday memories are based around going to this one strawberry farm that had a lot of scarecrows all around the biggest, reddest, most beautiful strawberries I’ve ever seen. ¬†This farm did not disappoint, no it didn’t have scarecrows, but it was nestled in the beautiful Magaliesberg on a scenic farm. ¬†Tangaroa strawberry farm is great for strawberry picking, picnicking at the dam, duck watching, playing with dogs and they made a great strawberry jam to boot!

With most things in life its always best to get your little bucket at the gate and get there early, because the early strawberry picker catches the best strawberries

Weekend are made for adventures, wait any time is a great time for adventures. ¬†We have been in full adventures, get our fun on mode lately. ¬†Trying to tourist the life out of our city before we leave, its been dandy to say the least. ¬†From strawberry picking on the hottest day in the world to rowing on a dam, relaxing at home and Carl studying away a storm. ¬†Ordinary days are the ones you remember. ¬†Its all about making memories and having fun along the way and photos captures the moments you don’t want to forget.

Candles

^^ We had such an intense thunderstorm here on Friday.  The sky was blue and wonderful on one side and super ominous on the other, and suddenly it was a ridiculous thunderstorm.  It knocked the whole areas electricity out and started a wildfire.

Garden Roses

sad ball

^^ I was so shocked to see someone else playing sad ball.  Sad ball is my thing! What is sad ball? Its when you end up playing with a ball all by yourself, while looking super goth/emo with a sad, sulky face.  This guy was playing sad ball hard.

Rowing

^^ a relaxing row.  Well it was relaxing when I was not rowing.

^^ Walks around parks.  This park is filled with evil ducks.  They will chase you down and do odd duck things to you.  Beware.

Strawberry picking

^^ Strawberry picking. Boy, it sure was hot. ¬†I mean really hot. ¬†I felt like passing out and just becoming a strawberry myself. ¬†I didn’t. ¬†I’m still human. ¬†Don’t worry.
