Yvonne, Cindy, Becca, Aimee, and Samuel went to Lakeview Farms to pick red raspberries. Yvonne and Cindy did most of the picking while the kids played.
There were three separate mines (dirt piles) that the kids were allowed to dig in to look for "diamonds". We allowed them to dig in the piles that had clear and purple "diamonds". There was another mine that contained black crystals. The kids had a blast digging in the dirt.
After the novelty of digging in the dirt wore off and the kids started getting anxious to leave, they were shown a maze that they could wander through. It was a Sorghum maze made especially for small kids. There are no dead ends or circles and it takes less than 5 minutes to walk thru. What a great time! Between keeping an eye on the kids, Cindy and Yvonne were able to pick plenty of beautiful red raspberries. Boy did they taste good!
