My cat Yun Yun is 5 years old today! To the kitty who never sit stills, sweet, curious, and always up to something: Happy Birthday! We got Yun Yun when she was 3 months old at the SPCA. She was a tiny kitty with a squishy face and beautiful colors. Yun Yun just brings a lot of amusing moments into our daily lives and is a very special member of our family. For her birthday, I made her a pink princess strawberry cake.
Cake didn’t turn out so good. It was too hot, everything just ended up melting:( The ball and string is Yun Yun’s new favorite toy.
Let’s make a wish! You’re a big kitty now

Last week, I talked about my favorite fruit to pick, cherries. Well, I’m not done yet because there are so much more fruits at my local u-pickin’ farm, Impossible Acres. They are open for picking all summer long!
Let me explain how it works: when you arrive, there is a front stand where you ask for boxes to put your fruits in. Then you may go ahead and pick any fruits and veggies you like. When you are done having fun, bring your crops back to the front stand and just pay for what you pick! The average price is $2-3 per pound, depending on the type of fruits. There is no admission fee or time limit. It is really a fun activity for family and fruit lovers, without spending a whole lot of money.
Don’t forget to wear a hat and protect yourself from the beaming sun. Even though there are lots of trees, they are not tall enough to provide enough shade.
I love the smell of peaches. White peaches are one of my favorite fruits!
Apricots trees are so pretty!
Look at all the cute name signs!
Berries are delicious!
We meet some friendly animals nearby:)
So many fruits to pick: raspberry, strawberry, and plum.
Late in the summer and fall, there are apples available for picking!
Our colorful fruits and vegetables, hand picked fresh! They are such great inspirations for cooking and baking:)

It’s been a bit busy lately, seems like every time spring time comes along, there are just an endless list of activities. We love to be productive and it’s all so fun! Currently, we are finishing editing several projects. Meanwhile this past weekend, we photographed a wonderful wedding …so even more editing to come! Plus graduation and another wedding coming in 2 weeks! But before that, we decided to take a short break and drive on the country road to our new favorite spot 30 minutes away from home to a fruit and vegetable stand.
T & Y Strawberry Patch in Woodland has the sweetest, juiciest strawberries, picked fresh from their strawberry field. Tastes like candy! We also love getting the fresh green veggies. For $1, we got a huge bundle of spinach! They are amazingly fresh and yummy. Mustard green, beets, and oranges are all very good.
Of course, I like to take a camera whenever I’m out and about. This was a birthday gift from my sweetie Yip:) a Poloroid One Step Land camera. I discovered an expired pack of film from my mom. Here are pictures from our day.
This was a simple, sweet break to reward our hard work and now back to editing.
