We went strawberry picking with Kerri and Golden and picked about 4 lbs of strawberries! Hannah probably also ate a pound, as none of the berries she picked made it into the basket.
I figured the best way to use them all up was to make puree. So I started stemming, stemming, stemming . . .
We had a couple fun encounters with our Kansas state reptile this summer, including this one we rescued from the highway. If you're a parent, you'll understand why this event deserves three photos.
Setting him free for new adventures.
Be safe, little thrill seeker!
Thanks to Uncle Pete's mad negotiating skills, the best slip 'n' slide ever was procured from a local construction company that was downsizing. With a little dish soap and water, those kids were flying down the hill at record speed. Luckily there were giant bales of sod to stop them from hitting the barbed wire fence at the bottom.
And we continued to eat well, getting a large portion of Jed and Amy's swiss chard overload. I love Hannah's face in this picture. "Swiss chard? Again?"
Growing a fetus, playing a princess, rescuing turtles . . . that about wraps up June! We did quite a bit of fun crafting over the summer, but I'll post about those in an all-craft post! Stay tuned!
