This past Saturday was filled with lots of fun outdoor activities for my family. We woke up to a beautiful day and headed to town to participate in our community’s annual planting day where residents volunteer to help fill the town planters with flowers.

|Had at work.|
|Job well done!|
Right after this, we headed out to our favorite local farm for our annual Strawberry Picking trip.
|The perfect strawberry….found!|
Every year we pick 2 HUGE boxes of strawberries to make into jam and strawberry bread. I usually get three batches of jam, two of which I make the same weekend as picking, and one which I make sometime in the winter with a frozen reserve of the fresh strawberries. The three batches get us through the year with homemade jam.

That was my weekend….I hope you had a spectacular one as well!
