Pheebs didn’t make the cut this morning but Kelly did so it was into the Jeep and off we went to the Bayfield Berry Farm about a 5 minute drive from our place. Always one of our favorite little hide-a-way breakfast spots with so much more to offer than just breakfasts and good eats. For anyone in our area who hasn’t been here you really must go and especially if you like your berries:))
RASPBERRIES ABOVE AND BLUEBERRIES BELOW FRESH ON THE VINE
We had agreed to meet Bri, Ben, and the boys Dorion and Kai there for breakfast. It was a few minutes after 8 and how lucky we were to find that we were the only ones there. Had the whole place to ourselves for breakfast. Now that is my kind of happening. Love it when there are no masses of yakky-doodle people around.
LUCKILY WE HAD THE PLACE TO OURSELVES FOR MOST OF THE TIME WE WERE THERE…..THE FELLOW WHO BUILT OUR SUNROOM ALSO PLAYED A BIG ROLL IN BUILDING THIS BUILDING
ALL THOSE ‘LOW SUGAR’ JAMS AND JELLIES ARE GROWN AND MADE RIGHT THERE AT THE BERRY FARM
FRESH STRAWBERRIES JUST PICKED
ALL JUICES ARE MADE RIGHT HERE AS WELL AND IF YOU ENLARGE THE PHOTO YOU CAN SEE THE MANY JUICE COMINATIONS….WE HAVE AN APPLE AND STRAWBERRY MIX BOX IN OUR FRIDGE RIGHT NOW…..ALL 3 LITER BOXES HAVE A SPOUT AND TAP
THAT’S US WAY OVER THERE IN THAT FAR CORNER
As any parent knows eating with Kids can be an experience in itself and so it was this morning again. I never went through the ‘kids’ phase in my life and I sometimes think to myself it was probably just as well. But of course I’m looking at it from a Seniors point of view now and not a young family man’s point of view. Maybe I would have made a good Father, I like to think so, but I’ll never know. I’m a biological Father of course but guess you could say I never really earned my wings to think of myself as a true Father. Anyway it’s always an educating experience for me whenever any of Kelly’s 6 Grandchildren and their parents happen to drop by.
HERE’S GRAMMA KELLY HAPPILY TAKING PHOTOS OF HER GRAND KIDS:))

A BUSY LOOKING BREAKFAST TABLE AS KAI SLURPS UP SOME COLD HOT CHOCOLATE
Made it through breakfast without any injuries and it was soon time to say good-bye. They were headed back to Deer Park Lodge to spend more time down at the beach before heading home. Kelly and I were back home well before 10 to find Pheebs sitting outside waiting for us. We had left the back door and gate open but Pheebs is such a good dog she just patiently waited for us to return. That happened once before and she did the same thing. She is just the very much most bested little girl in the whole world.
RASPBERRY FIELDS ABOVE AND STRAWBERRY FIELDS BELOW AND SOMEWHERE OUT HERE ARE SASKATOON BERRIES AS WELL
OUTSIDE HEADING FOR THE BERRY FIELDS
‘DID SOMEBODY JUST HOLLER AT US TO STOP EATING ALL THE BERRIES’…..NAWWW, MUST HAVE BEEN THE WIND
TIME TO SAY GOODBYE…………AND THIS BRINGS TO A CONCLUSION MY ‘KIDS’ PHOTOS UNTIL NEXT TIME:))
The day rapidly heated up and the miserable humidity kept us both inside which was Okay because I had lost all my energy along the way somewhere anyway. Some days are fine for doing nothing and this turned out to be one of them. Early tomorrow morning when our outside air is again cool and fresh Pheebs and I will likely be out dusting along a few country roads somewhere in search of more brown cows and tractors, flying green chickens and and just about anything else that catches our fancy……………….
EARLY MORNING’S DEW ON THE BLUEBERRIES
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Dearest Dad I am coming home to get married soon so get your check book out. I am in love with a man who is far away from me. As you know I’m in Australia and he lives in Scotland. We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, and had long chats on Whatsapp. He proposed to me on Skype and now we’ve had two months of a relationship through Viber. My beloved Dad I would like your blessing, good wishes, and a really big wedding. Lots of Love and thanks. Your daughter Lilly…………The Response………My Dear Lilly, Like Wow, Cool. I suggest you get married on Twitter, have fun on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon and pay for it all on Pay Pal. And when you get fed up with your new husband sell him on Ebay. Love, your Dad.
A wife and husband both talked in their sleep. She loved auctions; his hobby was golf. The other night, as they slept, the golfer yelled, "Fore!" His wife yelled back, "Four and a quarter!"
Deanna-mals are restless open the cage!
It's always fun to have the grandkids visit and Kelly's got some cute ones!ReplyDelete
You're not alone with the heat & humidity. Nebraska's been sweltering, can't seem to rain, and when it does the hail comes with it. Ah, wonderful summer!
Those are cute kids, for sure. I know you are proud of them. BTW, I am now a great grandpa.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great visit with the kids and grands and you even went for breakfast, I am impressed. Some day we will stop by the Berry farm there to check it out looks like a good place for fresh berries and stuff.ReplyDelete
What a great place to have breakfast! Love all the fresh berries. Nice photos of the grandchildren. How sweet of Pheebs to wait patiently on the porch and not wander off. Such a good girl:)ReplyDelete
We had a great time and the kids want to come back soon thanks for having us!!!ReplyDelete
Flowers and berries and littles - great post! I know the parents must love getting all these wonderful pics of their kids.ReplyDelete
