life in general {playing hooky & picking strawberries}

June 17, 2013

I played hooky this week not once, but twice with my babies…


Ok, well once really wasn’t hooky.  The little man had his two-year check-up and we went to Starbucks for a little breakfast snack after.  This place in particular had all of the tables along a length of  window that faced the drive-thru.  Ronan sat there and waved to every car, every person that passed through Starbucks.  It made everyone smile…little ray of sunshine.ronanAaaannnnd…the second time wasn’t really hooky either  since I actually told Moira’s teacher she was going to be out for the morning.  We waited all week for a decent day (aka no thunder storms) and it finally came on Friday…strawberry picking!moira-squared

The berries were great.  It was muddy but the weather was perfect.  And it was a thrilling morning for Moira, breakfast and berry picking…such a big deal to get out of school to do something special with her Momma.  She picked about 20 berries and said, “I’m done.  I want to go see the animals.”  Then she ended up picking daisies and eating every large berry she could find for the rest of the time.  But, she was so proud and excited.  We even brought some of the harvest to her teachers.

In total we brought home 16 quarts…is it bad that I plan on going back to pick more?  I have all kinds of strawberry treats on my mind!
