Strawberry Fun

Joel, the girls, and I went strawberry pickin' yesterday! Some friends of ours invited us out to pick, and they sent us home with all the strawberries from their garden! I have a freezer full of strawberries, and friends who have fresh strawberries, and have more to do something with fast! We all had a great time, and now I feel like Bubba Gump did about shrimp only with strawberries...strawberry ice cream, strawberry shortcake, strawberry truffle, strawberry pie....

I'll spare you the pictures Joel took of my rear end while I was bent over picking! (you're welcome)

Needless to say, yesterday afternoon was spent slicing and freezing strawberries.

Today was spent running around doing all our errands. I went to Wal-Mart and got a trunk full of flowers, some for my grandma and some for us, and spent the afternoon planting all of them!

Tomorrow is operation house recovery. Wish me luck.

I saw your comment over at Nester's and thought I'd stop by and say hello. I really like your blog. I'm just getting started and it's nice to see other relatively new bloggers.

Love your strawberry pickin' pictures. I can't wait until strawberries come into season here. I've been buying the California ones for about a month. They've actually been pretty good this year but there's nothing as good as locally grown.

Hi Hadley! It looks like you had fun! What darling pictures of your little ones! Mmmm, strawberries! My hubby has a special talent for taking pictures of me that I NEVER want anyone to see because they're so unflattering. I think he does it on purpose.

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
