one thing that i love about summertime is FRUIT! the fruit is so yummy! my mouth is watering just thinking about their sweet, juicy goodness!
one thing i especially love is B.E.R.R.I.E.S!
in oregon we were able to go out and pick our own berries at a fraction of the price that you'd pay in the stores. unfortunately, we don't have that luxury here in the high desert, but we can still enjoy the sweet, succulent store bought berries.
on saturday i went to costco and came home with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, all of which were NOT on my list, but they were calling my name and saying, "take me home!" so i did! we've already eaten half of the berries in our cereal and our salads and just by the handful!
berries aren't only good for eating, but apparently, as my girls demonstrated this afternoon, they are also fun to play with!
i grew up doing this with olives, but never raspberries! raspberries work just as well and they look much prettier and taste much better!
nani, our budding photographer, wanted to take pictures of her sisters. so, after capturing the above images, i handed her the dslr and let her have at it! i was so proud of her! she set this picture up all on her own! she told them where to stand and how she wanted their hands! as you can see by the smiles on their faces, they were having a great time, too:
so, to all my berry pickin' friends back in oregon, pick some extra berries for us this year and think of us eating our store bought, over priced berries while you enjoy your freshly picked, very inexpensive berries!
and to all of you,
have a berry yummy summer!
(i feel like i just read that out of a strawberry shortcake book!)
