Philadelphia pt 2..please touch museum

 Ruthanna and I bought a city bus tour ticket for a couple days.  There were 21 stops that you could hop on and off. One stop was the children's museum. We only had a few hours to be there but could have easily spent a day there.

 They had a pretend hospital and doctors office. Ruthanna liked taking care of the doll.

mommy's helper

 After we picked the strawberries (16 pounds!) We brought them home to freeze.  RRuthanna's job was to hand them to me when it was time to bag them.

strawberry picking

A couple weeks ago we went to a you pick strawberry patch.  Ruthanna and her cousin worked together at picking and filling their buckets.

 Hard at work finding the berries...we had red ones, green ones, and a few white ones when the girls finished.  :)

feeding the lambs

                                                  .                     We bought a few lambs back in April and Ruthanna has enjoyed feeding them. They are her "babies" as she calls them.
