Strawberry Mania!

A few weeks ago, we decided to hit up the farm to pick our own strawberries.  It had been a few years since I had picked strawberries and Georgia had never picked them!  At Butler's, the fun began with a bouncy hayride out to the picking fields...

Ready to go!!

Once we were assigned our section, we started hunting down some perfect berries to bring home!

This one looks good!

Of course, the best part about picking fresh strawberries is sampling the goods!

Then again, why waste energy on picking them when Daddy will do all the work for you?!?

Someone managed to get strawberry juice all over her clothes, me and her face!

Chin, forehead, nose = good strawberry picking/tasting trip!

Hmmmm... now what to do with all these strawberries??!??

Luckily, Pinterest had a few ideas.  After freezing about half the batch, I whipped up some mini strawberry muffins for Georgia.  A quick milk substitution and the recipe was safe for her to eat.  I also made a strawberry coffee cake, which was pretty yummy - a bunch of folks thought it tasted like a strawberry bread pudding.

First Pool Day - Summer 2014

Sorry for the long stretch without a post, but Nick and I managed to sneak away for some adult only fun this past week - more on that to come later (and you can always follow along on our real time adventures on Instagram - @jennthoman).  

However, before we left, we managed to squeeze in lots of pool time recently.  A second pool opened in the neighborhood and we've been enjoying exploring the new pool and still loving the old one too!  Luckily, the weather has been GORGEOUS and all this sun has led to lots of pool time...

Jumping in with Daddy!

Practicing her floating technique!

Happy girl

Georgia has gotten lots of swimming practice too!

Georgia is obsessed with her new Ariel swimsuit that Mimi sent her for our trip to Disney this spring.  She never got to wear it on the trip, so she's been making up for lost time!
