This past long weekend, my family and I got the chance to get away from the busy city that we live in and go somewhere to relax. And with a phone call away, we were on our way to (the land of) Sarnia. Sarnia is a (town, when I was young) city that’s roughly a three hour drive from Toronto.
I used to make many trips there when I was young with my cousins and Dennis. So many childhood memories were made there. We still have family residing there and with my cousin that recently bought a house with a beach as her backyard, I definitely had to go spend at least a night with them.
As you might or not know, there isn’t much to do in Sarnia. Everything is ‘far’, if you don’t have a form of transportation, you’re basically ‘screwed.’ My aunt, that lives in Sarnia, took us to a farm on Sunday. It was the perfect day to go pick vegetables that included wax beans, eggplants and green beans.
A cute sign for pea picking.
My dad hard at work. I think he was picking green beans.
My mom picking green beans.
Me! I was picking the beans and we used a plastic bag to hold the beans in.

Wax or yellow beans.
It’s an eggplant!
