The 52 Project – 29/52

 strawberry picking farmer copleys20140718_074448“A portrait of my boys, once a week, every week, in 2014″.

W: I took Winston and Rufus strawberry picking earlier in the week (although R just slept in the baby carrier). We are quite late in the season; making the strawberries harder to find, but I think it made it more fun. W enjoyed it once I finally prised him (kicking and screaming) from a vintage tractor they have near the entrance – no easy task. When I put a strawberry in the punnet he said: “Thanks Mum” and when I showed him a new find he would say: “Fantastic Mummy”. Aside from the tractor incident (!) I felt that we had such a special time together, doing something so simple.

R: This cheeky guy is on the move this week – maybe it’s the food? Ha. He’s a bit crazy to be honest. He can confidently and quickly roll over and drags himself along the floor to get toys. Winston is having to learn sooner than expected to share. Ru hones in on something and goes for it. I’ve heard Winston saying to him: “I’m going to have to move you now, Rufie Ru”…along with some not so pleasant shouting. I feel like things are changing too fast – I was enjoying the stage we are at.

    Last time I went strawberry picking with my kids, I ended up having to pay double, as my son, wore the evidence of additional theft on this white T-Shirt! Outdoor shoplifting, I think we named it at the time….

      That is hilarious! Maybe you would have gotten away with it if he’d worn a red t-shirt? Lol…it’s undeniable in a white one!
