It's that time of year again!!!

One of my favorite times of year has come and gone!  Strawberry season!  We waited patiently all week to go the patch to do some picking.  The kids were getting a bit impatient (and so was I), but the crop is pretty bad this year due to cold temps at the wrong time.  The first day the patch reopened, the kids and I got up early and made it to the patch...we were the first ones there besides one guy.  Our friends started showing up during the next hour...and by the time we left the patch was crowded.   All in all, it was a WONDERFUL morning and we picked 4 buckets full of strawberries!                                                                                                                              

You can tell he spent a good chunk of his time eating strawberries...he did pick a whole bucket full though!

We cored and froze right around a million of the strawberries....the kids love having frozen fruits in their oatmeal.
I was dreading coring all of the strawberries....but both of the girls were HUGE helps this year!

We made yogurt/strawberry popsicles
and strawberry shortcakes!!  YUM!
