Vacation Day 1: Linvilla

Today is the first day of Adam's vacation!  He hasn't had this much time off (a week!) the whole time that we've worked here except to go to scout camp.  We're really happy. We're going to go on a bunch of day trips and activities around here. Today we went strawberry picking with our playgroup friends.  We picked over 7 pounds of strawberries! The kids were really good at picking.  I had to throw away a lot of squishy ones later, but even with that we still had over 5 pounds left after I cut all the tops off and threw out the squishy ones.

 Daniel did really well at picking and picked over a pound until he figured out he could eat them.  His face is covered in strawberry juice here!
 Katrina was pretty excited about the rocks she was holding in this photo.
 Yummmm.  We already had chocolate-covered strawberries for lunch and are having strawberry lassi later on tonight.  A lot of them are super ripe, so I put them in bags and put them in the freezer.  I'm planning on making some fruit leather, yum!
More posts will happen as the week goes on!
