toddler thoughts...

Dakota: "I farted one time... in the zoo. I farted in the zoo, guys."
*blows raspberries*
Cody: "I bet you've farted multiple times"
Dakota: "Nope only one time. In the zoo"

She's going to hate me for this one day... LOL!

My Playlist

MomDot is at it again! In todays Blog Hop we are to share our music playlist. The goal is to show what music you won't let people know you secretly love. Other than Christian Gospel and Modern folk, everyone that knows me knows I could care less what I'm listening to. I get really tired of listening to the music in my playlists so I listen to Slacker Radio ALOT. I even pay the extra 4.99 a month to get unlimited skips. F*!@ Pandora!

So here it is  :)

Smith Family Farms

Not that long ago, we took a day trip to Brentwood,CA to go to a U-Pick farm. None of us had ever been before, so we were really excited! It took us about an hour and a half to get there, and boy was it scorching!!!! When we left the house it was about a cool 75-78 degrees out in Pinole. It was 105 in brentwood with no shade! Needless to say we were sweating our badonkadonks off. To our part of the bay area 105 is like being in the sierra dessert. After about 10 minutes of complaining how hot it was, we grabbed our buckets from the lady under the ONLY shaded tree on the farm, and took off to pick our fruit. The downside about our trip was that we went close to the end of the season. So by now all the fruit still on the trees were slim picking and you needed to make sure they didn't have bugs on them.

Ready to go Pickin'!
Dakota picked a Pomegranate! 
Best part of the farms was that you could eat all you want while you pick!
Showing me her apricot....

After we were finished picking, we stopped at the farmers market stand out by the road. We got so much fresh fruit and veggies for $14!!  We will definitely going back next season. This time at the beginning!

5 Things you would learn about me if you walked through my house......

I know I'm late on this, but a couple of days ago Trisha over at MomDot did a fun little blog carnival. The challenge was to take 5 pictures around your house that says something about you. AND as an added bonus she did another blog carnival with sharing your fridge and pantry AS-IS. Since I'm late on both I figured I'd add them both into one post. So here goes.....

5 things you would learn about me if you walked through my house......

We have NO dishwasher!!!! 
I love redecorating rooms. Slowly but surely this one will be done soon. :)
The dining room is our catch all.

I am always in the kitchen. It's my safe haven.

This is about as far as any one gets in our room. Trust me you DO NOT want to go in there. ;)

Here is my fridge and pantry AS-IS:


What would your pictures look like? If you want to get in on the fun link up over at MomDot

Now excuse me while I go eat the Pocky I forgot about in the lazy susan. Enjoy!!

The URGE again.......

Ok so I can't help it..... I want another dog. Or cat. Maybe a Guinea Pig???

I have this utter desire to save every pet from every shelter on the planet. C on the other hand is perfectly competent with our Ziggy Wiggy. I suppose I don't make things easier on myself. I am friends with rescue volunteers on Facebook, who post pictures of the dogs before their "final days" in hopes someone will adopt them. I even go on petfinder and look at the dogs, ooooing and awwwing over every last one of them.

C is to the point where he doesnt care as long as he doesnt have to feed it or pick up the poo. What's one more mouth to feed? Right?? Heck I'll even be a foster mommy.
