Strawberry picking!


It's our annual trip to the berry farm for strawberry picking.  This year we decided to go back to the same farm we visited last year, Bures Berry Farm.  We all enjoy picking fresh strawberries and it is a little bit of a competition to see who can pick the most between the four of us.  The weather was perfect as we set off to the fields to start picking.


The berries looked great and they were easy to pick.



This year, I think it was a tie between Holden and Rylan for the most strawberries.  I think Leyton  may have eaten his weight is strawberries.  Seriously, every time I looked over, he had another one in his mouth!

 

And so did Holden and Rylan as well.

 

They were just too pretty not to eat!


We picked a little over 10 pounds of strawberries before heading to the other side of the farm to see the animals.  They had chickens and lots and lots of cows.

 


Hello there!



I have to admit, I miss our favorite berry farm in Ohio but we are keeping our summer tradition of strawberry picking and making lots of fun memories along the way.


School is OUT!!!!


Last Tuesday was the boys last day of school for the boys.  Holden's last day of 4th Grade and Rylan's last day of 1st Grade.



Hard to believe.  Leyton is a little excited to have the boys home for summer.


Actually, we are all pretty excited for SUMMER BREAK!!!


Let the fun begin.  We made and posted our "Summer Adventures" list on the chalk board and are eager to start checking off some adventures.



In the meantime, here is little of what we have be up to....  Part of our "new" summer routine is riding bikes to the library.  Its great exercise and the boys love a biking excursion.



Lots of afternoons at the pool.  We have been extremely lucky with the weather, it has been warm and muggy...just how I like summer!

 

Now that we do not have to rush to school, we can enjoy some fun summer themed breakfast....watermelon waffles are a favorite around here.  


A little bit of night fishing before the summer storms roll in...the boys have grown to love fishing and ask every day can we go.


Nature walks...in our neighborhood, we have a prairie conservatory which is just a trail with lots of tall grass and wild flowers.


Oh and I could I forget....baseball.

 

Well, it does not seem like a very exciting start to summer but it has been nice to have a few days of nothing planned.  Next week, the boys have camps, games and a few activities that our slow days of nothing are soon going to be filled with lots of places to be and memories to be made....Happy Summer Break!!!
