Hewitts Farm with the Cousins!

June 2015

My cousins, Shawn and Shiyi came over in June for a short visit. It was really nice to have some familiar faces around in the house and the children were happy to see them as well. We brought them to some strawberries plucking at Hewitts Farm on one Sunday after church. (Yes, despite being on holidays, the cousins still went for church. I am very moved by their faith in God. In fact, they even bought the children and myself Christian books as gifts. So Ryan has received his 4th toddler’s Bible. No kidding. He owns 4 toddler’s Bibles now. Amazing! Because we came to London with no bibles at all.)

In comparison to last year when we went in July, the weather in June was much better. Warmer. And the strawberries were bigger, redder and definitely tastier.

These were some of the strawberries that we plucked earlier in the journey. The ones that we picked later were so much bigger! In the end, we purchasedย ยฃ10 worth of strawberries and they lasted us about one week!

I did not managed to take many photos as compared to my last trip as I feel incredibly heavy and tired despite just only being in my second trimester. This is what age did to me… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

These are the photos taken by Shawn. Erhmm… super big difference because he brought the professional stuff! Photo quality is amazing! And it is rare that I am not the day’s photographer!

We brought a milk carton filled with water to wash the plucked strawberries. From the smiles on their faces, Ryan and Gillian enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Summer’s gotta be our family’s favourite season! It is so awesome to be outdoors with the kids exerting their energies!

While the job of strawberries plucking is back breaking, the experience is just awesome for the kids.

Here’s a group photo taken with the GoPro!

Back to my loyal camera’s photos…. Not the best quality but I still love you!

We had a picnic outside the farm store with food from the supermarket before heading to Bluewater Shopping Mall for some shopping! E and I were impressed with the array of stores and eateries at Bluewater. Given that it was a Sunday, it was not as crowded as Westfield Shopping Mall at Stratford. I can foresee that we will be heading there more often this coming winter.

Because we did not bring alone the stroller, we decided to rent this cart to explore the mall with the kids.

Here’s the kids having fun playing ‘train’ with their Daddy.
