This week was full of summer fun! Tuesday my sister-in-law and I took the kids to a strawberry patch (which I've never done before) to pick strawberries. It was a gorgeous morning, not too hot and a bit of a breeze, so no bugs!
Everyone had fun, and we got a ton of strawberries!
I think we got plenty! I am hoping to make some jam this weekend, if time allows...
After strawberry picking, we went home, packed up lunches and headed to the beach. It was SUCH a gorgeous day out!
Clearly they had fun...maybe too much...
Wednesday night our town had a "movie in the park" night which we have never done before. They were showing the movie "The Boxtrolls". I do not recommend it, it was a very strange movie, and not one of my girls liked it, haha. They had a car contest and Alayna's taxi won 2nd place in her age group!
She won $20 and was super excited!
It really was a fun night, the adults sat and chatted (quietly) while the kids watched. I made a huge batch of homemade kettle corn (in my new popper!),
and bagged it up in bread bags that I have on hand for when I make homemade bread.
I guess they are going to be doing a couple more movie nights this summer, we look forward to it (and hope that their movie choices will be better).
This weekend we hope to get the boat on the lake, and my plan is to make some jam and get my meals made for the week. I have some fun crafts and meals planned to celebrate the 4th next week and ordered the book
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
