a picnic at the little river farm. part one

March 25 2014 049

last tuesday when we all woke up (Drea and Marlowe included), we were greeted by one of the rainiest miami mornings i had seen in a while

on any other day i would have been a happy camper (i really do enjoy a rainy day) however, we had plans to go and have a picninc at a farm in north miami

and a picnic under the rain is just not as much fun as picnic under a sunny blue sky

we had breakfast, the girls played dress up for a while and then we decided to just get ready and go for it

the rain drops had lightened up a bit anyway

we dressed the girls in proper rain/mud/farm attire (raincoats and rainboots) and we met up with Tiffany (seen here) in order to follow her to the little river farm

we made a pit stop here to pick up some horse manure and by the time we made it to the farm, in true miami fashion, the rain had stopped, the sky was turning blue once again and the sun was coming out

it is going to be a bit farm-y here this week

i hope you don’t mind

but, surrounded by such beautiful nature and people, there was bound to be a lot of pictures

happy monday friends

hope you all had a lovely weekend

ps- you can also get Drea’s take on this day here

it’s funny, Lily only eats tomatoes when she can pick them from a vine
