Lets go Strawberry Pickin'

Today Sydney, Hunter and I went in search of some of the best strawberries around. We headed to Vollmer farm to pick strawberries and play on the farm, unfortunately it was about 90degrees but we still had fun. Sydney and Hunter enjoyed playing on the pumpkin princess diva plane and swinging on the horse swing and then they rode in the wagon while I pulled them down to the strawberry patch and then they each picked there very own bucket of strawberries to take home. Oh I almost forgot, the day started out with some of the best homemade ice cream, Farmer Johns homemade chocolate ice cream...YUMMY! We had a great time and I can't wait till strawberry season next year and I can pick strawberries with my favorite two little people again.

Man that is some of the best chocolate ice cream ever....See I like it so good, I decided to wear some of it home!

I think Hunter enjoyed the swings the best...his smile is priceless!


They loved the plane because they could both be the pilot, and every time they pulled the steering wheel towards them the tail of the plane would flap.....So they just kept pulling and pushing the wheel.....the loved this!

This was a workout pulling both of these kids out to the strawberry patch!

One of the only strawberries I could get her to eat in the field.....She was very determined to pick big "organic strawberries" as she called them to take home!

My little fella Hunter loved eating all the big strawberries and only putting a few in his basket!

Looking very hard for the red ones!

The finished product!

First Swim Team Practice...

Meet the Newest Member to Zebulon Swim Team....Go Dolphins!!!

Splish..Splash...Pool Party Fun

We had a great time celebrating Emersons birthday with her at Smithfield Aquatic Park. We had cake and ice cream and then went and played in the splash pool. They had lots of sprinklers and the water was about waste deep. I really liked it because it was perfect for Sydney to be able to play with out Mommy having to tag along.....the only thing was the chlorine was extra Strong...which means it is extra clean....but none the less when we left the poor girls eyes were burning so bad from all the chlorine...But we had such a wonderful time and definitely plan on going again!

Celebrate the Journey

This year was Massey School of Dance celebrated 50years of dance...hence the theme of their recital was Celebrate the Journey that they have gone down over the last 50years. It was probably one of the best recitals around and featured alumni dancing from previous years as wells as a special dance from "Mrs. Debbie and Mr. Eddie". This was Sydneys first year dancing at Massey but it has been very special since I also danced here for a few years when I was growing up....but Mommy was not going to strut her stuff on the dance during the alumni dance! Sydneys tap dance this year was Elvis Presley's "Teddy Bear". It was so cute and it always brings tears to my eyes when I see Sydney on stage....because each year affirms more and more how big she is getting. And I am so very proud of her! Sydney you always shine...and Mommy loves you so much!!
