weekend date :: strawberry picking

Ty and I went strawberry picking just this past weekend!
It was one of the things on our summer bucket-list.
I had fun! Ty got a little bored half-way through and just took pictures instead.
Looking back now….I’m not sure we really needed 6qts of strawberries, we are going to struggle to finish them before they go bad =s

Ty, the short time he actually picked berries

some of the larger berries that I found

the strawberry plants gave me hives all over my arms

all chopped up and ready to eat

mmmmmmmmmmm strawberries, mini angel food cake and photo editing


blue freezies

disclaimer: extremely photo heavy

Saturday we woke up bright and early to babysitting my cousin’s daughters (Maddison 11, Kenzie 2).

Thankfully they let us wake up slowly and eat breaky while they explored our apartment; it was their first time visiting.

We thought we would have a quiet morning and watch a movie; lilo and stitch. Kenzie wasn’t having it, she wanted to explore and play with our fridge magnets.

So, off to the park we went to get our wiggles out (the boy was a little sad, he wanted to watch the rest of the movie, he had never seen it before).

we played on the swings

and the slide

Kenzie pushed her big sister on the swings

and we collected mulch

and took pretty pictures; me and Kenzie (look at those eyes!)

we did handstands in the grass

and played on the bouncy cow

then when we are all tired we headed home(cutest picture of the boy and Kenzie)

Back at the apartment we were all hot and sticky so we had freezies, I’m not sure if Kenzie had ever had them before, she loved them! and wanted blue!

Maddison took up residence in the armchair with her laptop and stayed there for most of the afternoon.

Then we cooked grilled cheeses for lunch while the munchkin sat on the counter and kept us company. Seeing the boy with her melts my heart, they are too cute together =)

After lunch I tried to convince Kenzie she wanted a nap (really I wanted one) but she was having none of it. She did however, enjoy trying on almost every.single.bracelet that I own all at once!
