Strawberry Picking

Yesterday we ventured out and took the kids strawberry picking with some good friends. It's funny how things change when you have kids. If it was just my husband and I, we probably would have packed a lot less and got a lot more strawberries.  For me, the reason I wanted to go was for the kids to have fun. But we had to have a game plan. I was in charge of  Pinky Pie and Joey was in charge of the boys.

My job was easy!

Someone decided it was more fun to swim in the dirt.


Usually at least one person looks at the camera, and it's usually me.


Even with graphic warnings about chemicals and pesticides. There is no stopping them.


There's always a competition of some sort involved. Who has the most/biggest/ reddest strawberries????

 Or who can throw the strawberry the farthest.
 We had fun then went home and enjoyed the fruits of our labor

And even decided to share with our neighbors.


 They were very excited to knock on the doors of 3 of our neighbors and give them some strawberries.We keep looking for ways to connect and build relationships so we can minister to them. It also led into a great conversation with L about giving.

This is one our neighbors who takes care of her husband with alzheimer's. People keep telling her that he needs to be in a nursing  home but she said that they have been married almost 50 years and that was not in her vows. I keep praying for ways to be a blessing to her. She loves the boys and Pinky Pie. 

Overall, we had a great day with friends!
