Strawberry Picking!

A few weeks ago we went to the Wild Things Farm with our MOPS group.  We have been a few times before so we decided this time to just go and pick berries rather than do the tractor ride, etc.  It was fun...and it was fun for Gabriel for about 10 minutes.  Then he was asking when we were going to eat lunch.  So, I was the one who picked most of the strawberries, and we ended up with about 2 pounds.  They were so delicious!  They didn't even compare to the ones you buy at the grocery store.  I made a strawberry pie with a recipe from my "Aunt Bee's Mayberry cookbook".  It was a decent pie, but I think next time I will use less sugar.

I have gotten in a non-posting slump and I have so many pictures that I've taken in the past few months!  We went to Circle of Friends camp this past weekend and I have some great photos so I hope to post those with details of the weekend soon.  We had a great time!
