After lounging around all morning, I decided it was time for us to get outside!  I'm not feeling well, at all, and don't have too much energy, but I knew I needed to get out there and pick the strawberries, radishes and rhubarb!!  The kids LOVE to help in the garden, (well, Ava does......Luke just likes to dig in the dirt!!), and they love being outside, so they were all over this idea!

After we picked the strawberries and rhubarb, I looked up and couldn't believe my eyes!!!  Lots of Raspberries were ready to be picked!!  We were soooooo excited!!  The three of us ran over and starting picking right away!  I wish I had had my camera with me, because as I'm telling the kids they can eat a few, but to put the berries in their bowls, of course, their bowls were 100% empty and their mouths were 100% full!!!  Red gooey goodness all over their faces! (I hope they don't wake up from their naps with tummy aches!)

We didn't pick too many, because my cold is terrible and along with that, my allergies were flaring up like crazy and I couldn't stop sneezing!!  But, here's a shot of the first Raspberries of the season:


Yummy!!  I really can't wait for more and more!!  We will get hundreds, if not, thousands, of Raspberries and it's hard to keep up with the picking, but we will definitely do our best!!


  1. I'll be over this weekend...I'd be happy to take some off your hands! ;-)
