bee and i were on our own saturday morning so we took a drive and spent the day at the city flea in cincinnati's washington park. we ate cherry lavender popsicles and visited booths and touched beautiful things....splashed toes in fountains and left with a father's day gift for papa and a pretty yellow dress for phoebe. i'm hoping to lure more friends down with me next month!
hoping you all had a wonderful weekend. happy happy monday, everyone!
today is max's last day of 2nd grade! bee and i are so excited to have him home and begin our summer shenanigans together. our "last day of school surprise balloon wake up" was a total bust...what with me getting caught by max at 4:30 this morning standing over him with a bag of balloons (i told him he was just having a nightmare and slowly back-peddled out of the room) and then coming to realize that angsty almost 9 year old boy's don't get sent to the moon by a bed covered in balloons (he surely is not my son. haha)
regardless, here's to summer!
oh my. wish me luck.
i have the fondest memories of early summers...strawberry picking with my mama and sisters and loading up bushels to take home...sneaking some to eat or stuffing some in pockets for later. it was definitely a tradition i couldn't wait to pass on to my max...and now to baby phoebe. and as much as sis is very much her father's daughter...old girl loves strawberries like her mama! even though she did empty out our bucket on the ground twice and squashed and ate every berry we picked...i think she's going to be a natural strawberry picker.
happy happy monday, friends! any good strawberry recipes?
