We use any excuse to watch this little darling.

Then the four of us proceed to fight over her until her Mama comes to take her home.

We Must Be Boring Dinner Companions

Ah, this girl. She has given up napping for the most part, but our long summer days often do her in. We usually head out the door to the beach right around her bedtime, and she dozes in the car, wakes up to enjoy the sunset, then can hardly wait to get back home to bed.
Any afternoon outing usually ends up with a car-ride nap as well. But don't even think about suggesting she nap, on her bed, while at home. No sir, no way.
The other day we were leaving to drive to a farm market to pick up produce. She asked me to bring her pillow so she could "snuggle and go to sleep". Sure enough, that's what she did.

It Begins

With strawberries.

50+ pounds picked this year.

Most went into the freezer. I ran out at Easter this year so I made sure to freeze a few extra bags so that wouldn't happen next year. Oh horror of horrors.

And of course some got cooked down into jam.
So it begins with strawberries, but the summer's beautiful berry bounty continues with raspberries, blueberries, tayberries (best jam in the world!) and blackberries.
Oh, I love this season.
