End of Week Fun

So I didnt really follow through with the plan to do a different activity each day during sprink break. But I tried, that counts for something, right? lol. It was rainy and grey here yesterday for most of the day, so I didnt feel like running to the store, and we never got the Easter stuff out. The kids had asked to go see Monsters vs. Aliens, and we told them we would think about it. Mike came home early, so the kids & headed to the theatre.

Yea, it felt pretty odd carrying a camera to the movies, lol. But the kids really enjoyed the movie, it was cute! Layla killed almost half that bag by herself.


That was really all we did yesterday. But today, we headed over to a Hydroponic U-Pick strawberry farm that we saw advertised in the paper.
Lots & lots of berries!



A close up of the bushes.



Sorry, a little blurry.



Picking away... even though she wont even try them! She also got "lost" at one point, she's shorter than the bushes!









The haul. Might not look like much, but trust me, it's quite a bit. Four pounds of berries for $4. You can't beat that price! Now I just need to decide what to do with them all. I'm thinking about trying some jam. Not sure what else though. Anyone have any good strawberry recipes?




Have a good weekend!

Those strawberries are making me crazy~they're gorgeous! what a great place and a great price. I just use the freezer jam recipe on the back of the pectin box and it works great. There's nothing better than fresh strawberry jam...

we took our kids to see Monsters and Aliens too. Our 3 year old loved it. He watched the whole thing.
