Mommy and Me- The 11th Edition


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

What was on our agenda this weekend?  What was this hint?  Nope, it wasn’t our laundry basket, or a trip to the beach!  (Although, there are currently 6 loads of laundry in our living room ready to be folded….and the beach is about 6 hours away!empty basket

How about this?  Does this help with your guesses?

We were off strawberry picking for opening weekend.

The last time we went was almost exactly a year ago.  We went strawberry picking with my grandparents.

#1 had fun picking the strawberries, but would much rather eat them!

I don’t know how women worked in fields with babies on their backs.  This was tough, tough work.  And, of course, #2 was less than thrilled that she wasn’t walking around (we didn’t want her to step on the strawberries, which she would have done).

So, here’s mommy and the girls at the strawberry patch.  It’s an action shot.  What you can’t see is that the strawberry that was a double, like a Siamese twin, but it was hollow at the bottom, so it looked like a mouth.  I might have been making it talk.

The girls were quite thankful to be free and not having to “work” anymore.

The berries were quite fresh and there were tons of them.  It might have taken all of 10 minutes to pick all of these gems.


Which were quickly made into a tasty dessert.  Come back later and I will share the delicious and easy recipe for this yummy goodness.
