If you want to go do something that will really make you feel like spring is here, then go check out UNDERWOOD FAMILY FARMS www.underwoodfamilyfarms.com This place has it all, from pony rides to trains to strawberry picking. For a full on farm experience with the kids, opt for the strawberry picking. Jump on the tractor and get taken to the strawberry fields where they give you very your own container to put your hand picked strawberries. It’s fun and actually teaches the kids where food comes from. Bring plenty of wet wipes because if your kids are anything like mine, they will surely stuff their faces with strawberries on the tractor ride back. After that, you can check out all of the farm animals (cows, pigs and rabbits) and there are even pony rides for kids. Also, you can buy a ton of organic produce at their farmers market. If you live in LA, it’s a little ways out, but definitely worth the drive.
