The Russes gave to me…
Some hand picked STRAWBERRIES!
It’s strange to think that it was hot here once because I’m wrapped in a blanket freezing as I type this. I guess that’s what you get when you’re playing blog catch up.
Anyway, back when it was warm outside we organized a little outing to the Strawberry Fields (thinking Beatles?) The kids LOVE strawberries so I REALLY wanted to take the kids to pick some. It was an ambitious outing involving BLISTERING heat, a little bathroom accident (when do they ever really become potty trained??) and a long, HOT (did I mention it was HOT) walk to the field.
It was funny watching the kids realize that they can actually eat the strawberries they pick off the vine (and the ground).
but oh, how sweet they were!! (and they made delicious jam!!) They had a great time hunting for the strawberries.
And picking the strawberries was almost as much fun as climbing in the tree afterwards!!
I had to include this one because of our strollers in the background. The funny thing is that a few of my friends with Phil & Teds didn’t make it. You should see the stroller line up when we’re all together! LOVE that stroller!!
