Strawberries & Cousins






This weekend, we spent time with Phil's cousin and his family . They have 3 sweet girls and everybody always has a wonderful time when we get together.





This weekend, the two mamas took the kids (everybody except Thomas) and went strawberry picking. My boys had never gone strawberry picking, so the excitement was high!





The strawberries were so plentiful, it took us about 30 minutes to pick 7 bucket-fulls














{and eat a few, too, of course}!






We took them back to the house and made most of them into jam. Each family got 24 pints of wonderful, decidedly-NOT-low-sugar freezer jam.





Yummy!












We'll have to do it again next year, since Daniel now informs me that he is an 'artist' at strawberry picking.

Strawberry picking?! So much fun.... I can hardly wait, but it'll be another month at least for us. I can almost taste their sweet juiciness warmed in the sun...delicious!
