We have had some warmer weather finally here in CT, which means more time outside, which means a happier mama and kiddos. These are from Thursday, Lyman Orchards, which is one of my favorite places in CT. From June to Halloween we try to go once every week-2 weeks to pick strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, pears, pumpkins and squash. They also have the best sandwiches, which is what we went for Thursday, a nice dinner out on the deck, and a rousing time of "chase the goose".

Ummm ... that's the closest these geese have *ever* let the kids get. They must be out of practice after the long winter. They usually chase the kids around.

This goose, that the kids named Feathers, actually let them pet him!

Ok, well, then he turned and tried to peck Holden somewhere no little boy should be pecked. He had a perfect muddy beak print right in the middle of his shorts. Then the goose turned his attention on me and started trying to peck at me and the car (I was sitting on the hood - I wasn't going down there with him!).

At least the tree didn't fight back.
