We went strawberry picking this morning. I have been wanting to go all season and they close on Sat, so we headed over this morning. Of course we arrive and it starts to pour. Jackson was sleeping so we headed down to the shop to use the bathroom since I told Aly it was not really okay to pee in the fields.
Luckily when we got back to the field it had stopped raining. Aly was on a mission to get the most strawberries, crown and all.
Brianna picked dandielions
and the straw out of her shoes....that was about the extent of her picking
We picked for about 15 minutes before Jackson decided he was hungry. Of course he is listening to the peditrician who told him he did not need to eat every 2 hours - yeah right. So I carried Jackson while Brianna picked flowers and straw and Aly picked strawberries.
We sat in the field parking lot while I fed Jackson and the girls watched a show, snacking on the few strawberries that we did collect. When we got home this is what was left.....
Nope the bowl is not deceiving, they will probably finish them for snack. Sigh.....so much for freezing a whole bunch for the fall and winter.
Check out the cheeks - and the rolls on the arms. Jackson went for his one month appt this morning. Weighing in at 12.2 lbs, you know he is eating well when the Dr. comments that he can go longer in between feedings. Yeah, I will be sure to let him know.... He is 23 inches long and such a good baby.
His umbilical cord did not quite heal so they cauterized it this morning. He was not a fan of that. Othewise everything looks good.
This is the girls last week of school and then the summer camp progrma starts. Aly has moved to the 4 year old room. She is excited and asked me this morning how long before she moves to the 5 year old.
My parents had a retirement party on Friday night. They did not know the extent of the party - which was at the minor league baseball game. Below they are on the field throwing out the first pitch.
I don't know which one is more excited about retiring - my mom or my dad. They both are counting down the final days! It was great that all four kids and all 6.75 grandkids were there to celebrate their achievements! The weather was perfect and I think that they were both surprised at the number of people there.
How amazing that they have been teaching this long. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that they are going to retire together and have many more years to enjoy our family.
Mom and Dad - CONGRATS - You have 7 reasons to enjoy these years!
Connor, Aly, Brianna, Callum, Luke, Jackson and Baby Hoey - are so excited!
