"Happy Strawberry Picking Day!"



On Friday, we decided it was high time we checked the strawberry patch behind the pool--I never go back there but knew that we would lose some tasty morsels if we didn't start picking. As we were bent over digging through the patch, enjoying ourselves, and eating ripe ones along the way, Hannah stands up and with her arms in the air, shouts, "Happy Strawberry Picking Day Everyone!!" Her enthusiasm was contagious.





Why can't strawberries be ripe all at the same time!? We had all variations of ripeness--white to light pink to red! Every day is going to be strawberry picking day for me!!

You are the perfect All American Family if I do say so myself! How fun. Gotta love strawberries! The note said "You are loved and admired. I hope your day is as bright as the flowers of May. Happy May Day." And no, you are not snoopy, I would have wondered the same thing!

I am so jealous that you have a strawberry patch at your HOUSE! That is our favorite fruit. When I pick up Alex for preschool tomorrow, I might sneak back and steal a few ;)
