Strawberry Season!!

We have been loving this beautiful weather and everything it brings with it!! One of my favorite things about this time of year are fresh picked strawberries. The patch we planted a couple of years ago is not disappointing us!! We found the first red strawberries last Sunday and have been picking a few every day since. Today was the first day we actually went out and picked with containers. Up until now all berries picked were very quickly consumed! :-) I've even caught Karson popping some green ones in his mouth, he doesn't seem to mind. In a few weeks I will probably be swimming in strawberries but I try to enjoy it while it lasts. :-) LOVE this time of year!!!


Just had to share this picture...Kaden had his last show-n-tell day for preschool last week. These are VERY important days!! :-) He was so excited to take a turtle we had found to show his class.

Kaden ready to leave for school with his turtle-- Ian. He gave it that name because it rhymes with his best friend's name--Ryan. ;-) I just LOVE 4 year-olds!!! (and 2, 7, 9,....all the " __year-olds")

LOVED all these pictures! The strawberries look delicious. Clayton is now screaming for Kelsey (literally) and reaching for the computer screen. :-( Wanna come see us? :-) Kaden w/his turtle is hilarious!

My Luke would be right at home in your strawberry patch! He LOVES berries! I have a feeling he would get along just fine with your boys!:) Loved all the pictures! Hope you are having a blessed day.

Brenda-- Wish we lived a little closer. Hopefully we will make it up in a few weeks. Maybe I can even bring some strawberries!! :-)

Carla-- I'm sure our boys would love to play together! If you're ever in Missouri...stop by! :-)
