Saturday Fun Day

Saturday, I loaded up my two kiddos and two of their buddies for a morning of strawberry picking.  After about a dozen u-turns, getting a little bit lost, and one car-sickness emergency pit stop, we finally made it to the farm.  There was an abundance of strawberries in the field.  Red, bursting berries as far as the eye could see!  It was great!  And you'll have to just take my word on it, because we were having so much fun we didn't take a single picture.  I know, I know....

We finished up picking berries and it was only 9:30.  Hmmm.... what to do next?  We loaded up and headed for the playground before the rain hit.

After playing for a bit, we headed over to the soccer field to run off the sugar high from all of the strawberries.  The boys got tangled in the soccer net and we almost had to cut TJ out.  I have no idea how that boy gets his head stuck in so many random places! 

TJ and Evelyn decided they were going to pick flowers for the mommas.  So sweet! 

After all of this, we were getting seriously hungry for lunch.  And what fun day would be complete without a trip to see "the sample ladies" at Sam's???  Saturday just happened to be the Spring Tasting day, where they had about 16 sample stations set up.  We visited every single one of them.... well, except 2 that were offering energy drinks.  NO THANK YOU!  These kids need no help in that department! 

Let me tell you... all 4 kids made me proud.  They were so polite.  Every sample lady (and man) they visited, they said please, thank you, and have a nice day.  It warmed my heart.  Especially after seeing a couple brats running around and dropping food all over the floor.  grrrrr... where were there parents anyways?? 

The day continued with playdates at both of our houses, some flower pot painting, fruit kebob making and a meltdowns by both of my children.  Lets just say that I need to stock massive amounts of granola bars and take away the glitter baton when more than one elementary aged female is in the house. 

Hope your Saturday was fun-filled too! 


  1. I just LOVE how you chronicled the day. PRECIOUS! They had loads of fun. Those pictures are adorable. I guess I should have warned you that Ev can get car sick sometimes. Oops. Thanks for being a super friend.
