Welcome Summer!

It hasn't felt like summer around here yet. The weatherman said it has actually rained for 27 out of 30 days in June...crazy! But there is a bright light ahead...and yes, I mean sunshine! This weekend was great...finally! Yesterday was hot, humid, and sunny - just like summer is supposed to be! Today wasn't so sunny, but still allowed for plenty of time outside!

So, to make it officially feel like summer, we set out to spend the weekend doing summery things - strawberry picking, water play, a baseball game, the zoo, ice cream from the ice cream truck ... you know, a summer's worth of stuff packed into one weekend! Hey, you never know when it's gonna rain again!

Here are the pics of strawberry picking. We didn't tell the kids where we were going - called it a "mystery trip" just like my parents used to do with us! They had a blast! Tater was good at finding strawberries to fill our basket. Bruiser was good at finding strawberries to fill his tummy! Every time we turned around he had another half eaten one in his hand. It wasn't until much later that we discovered he was eating the WHOLE strawberry - including the leaves! No ill-effects, fortunately! And tonight we enjoyed homemade strawberry shortcake with good friends!

There's one on the way to his mouth!

Hey, Mommy even made the blog!

If you look carefully at the box, you'll see white strawberries - that's what Bruiser wanted to pick! Daddy weeded them out before we paid!

There's G-Baby!

Keep checking back this week - I have tons of pictures from the weekend and I think it might take all week to cover those two fun-filled days!
Tomorrow: Slip-and-Slide!
