Raspberry...(They tell me its RAZZ-berry) Picking
Despite the way i say the word, Lady Hiva and I took Lucky Dragon to a raspberry farm, Perry's Berries, and picked from the large raspberry bushes ready and ripe. As soon as we saw the farm he came out and said it was "his farm." He talked the whole time (of course) we were picking. About the bees, the butterflies, the mud, the raspberries he was picking and any other random conversation his little mind could conjure up.
We came back home and Lady Hiva set to finding delicious ways to use the raspberries. She and Tau'aho used some of them to make a homemade French Raspberry Tart. He was so proud of it! "Daddy, we made you a cake!" He repeated it over and over until I tried some. They also made a two layer chocolate raspberry cake--luckily he did not demand that I try that one! Although Lady Hiva declared the homemade cake was "the best she had ever tasted"
