Strawberry Picking!

We went strawberry picking the other day. By the time we got there and it was quite a drive; they were CLOSED for the season! We saw a very young nice looking guy and asked him about the sign and he made a call to his mom and they let us pick from an area close to their house by the field.

Here we are hard at work. Sofia, Amal, my Mom, Melina and my sister.

My Mom, my sister Sandi and Amal diggin' in.

The sky is gorgeous and the weather is just so comfortable and here is my Dad.

Here is the fruit of our labors. We consolidated all of our pickings into one bucket! It was enough for us and we did have to hunt for them. The season came early here in Northern Ohio and who knew they would give this to us for FREE!!!

I was so stoked that I wanted to pick blueberries! So, we headed in the direction we needed and it started storming! Not just raining! I guess you had to be there to appreciate this photo as it got really dark really fast!!

Back at the house; my niece Melina showed an interest in my hexies. So, I showed her how to baste them and she got busy! Bless her heart! She did a great job too!

The storm followed us home and see the rainbow! If you look REALLY hard; you will see a double rainbow!!! It was hard to see and hard to photograph!

We caught some lightning bugs or fireflies (this one is for you Farah!!) but I could not get them flying around lit up! Darn!

At some point, we were coming back into the house from the back balcony and Amal did not see the screen and walked right into it! We laughed and then she sat down next to my dad and I saw her face and realized that she was trying not to cry.

This is actually the first photo. From this, Mama could tell that her baby girl was bummin'.

Look what I got! My mom received this parcel from Michele! Thank you so much!

A 'squishy' of F A B R I C!!! This is for my hexagon project and I can't wait to tuck in!

There is so much more that we are doing and have done. I will try to keep them in order and post! Thanks for stopping by!
