Blueberry Birthday!

4 Years old! We have continued the tradition, and celebrated at Sand Lake. As a child I always had my birthday parties at Sand Lake too. So this feels so right and good. Thanks to all of the family for making this day so special for Liesl every year. xoxoxoxoxo

Oh so Sweet!!!

Liesl received this adorable suit (it really is a swimming suit) from Nana and Papa, and she danced around in the water the whole afternoon!

On to the next cabin for the 4th of July weekend. We are soooooo lucky to have these magical places to spend our summer weekends.

Oh Yummmmmmm. S'mores
Look it's Chippie the most blogged Chipmunk in the whole world!!

Ahhhhh. Beautiful!

Blueberry picking was one of the highlights of the weekend. Liesl loved it and we picked.. wait for it.......... 4 GALLONS!!!!! Can't tell you where though!!

Here Liesl is enjoying a couple of her birthday gifts. The Bug Sprinkler and tree swing go very well together!! Thanks again everyone. xoxoxox

Back to blogging. We have been working soooo hard at gardening this year and we planted 40 strawberry plants! These are NOT from our strawberry patch. Ours won't have berries till next year. So we took a trip to Finke's Strawberry farm. We picked 15 Quarts of these gorgeous little berries. We were shocked at how much this amounted to. A quart of little strawberries is much much much more than a quart of giant store bought strawberries! We now have bags and bags of strawberries and blueberries (post on blueberries next week, I promise!) in our freezer to cheer our tastebuds come wintertime!

We had to make strawberry smoothies in celebration. I can't believe any of us can look at strawberries after eating so many!

These posts are all backwards now! Ooops this is the backwards trasformation of our strawberry patch.

Random Memorial Day pics from Nana and Papa's cabin!

Our Yard in Bloom~ again our backwards posting. The transformation from snow to spring.

Snow in May!!! Oh my goodness. Notice our beautiful rhododendrons in the corner (in full bloom!)

It has been a while since the last blog. My computer is quite slow and downloading photos takes a bit of time. I will however try to post a little more often.

Here are some photos from Mother's day weekend up to this weekend.
