All about raspberries!

This past weekend, we took the kids raspberry picking on Sunday and had a blast. We actually went there to pick strawberries – but the fields were closed until next weekend due to needing more time for more berries to ripen I guess. So – we took them up on their offer to get raspberries instead – and it was fun!
In order to get to the fields, we took the farm wagon out – which DS thought was WAY COOL!

Once we got out to the fields, DS and DD were the taste testers – confirming they tasted as good as they looked – take a peak:

Then back to the farm with our raspberries - on the farm wagon again.  Here is DS with his treasure of raspberries.  And yes, he dresses himself, in superhero pjs, day or night, no negotiation possible, end of conversation.   Say no more.
When we got our baskets home – we made some raspberry jam – and it is so good!

DD had her last day of school today and we sent a special jar of jam for her teacher – along with a beautiful card she made herself with photos of her picking the berries. It was very sweet. I didn’t get a photo of the card, sorry – it was quite late once we got it all packaged up.
So that she had just the right paper for her raspberry card - I downloaded the digital patterned paper called "Preserve it - Lemons & raspberries" from the My Time Made Easy online store.
And this weekend is the Canada Day long weekend! AND it is strawberry festival time around here. So it’s strawberry jam next – can’t wait!!!  And yes - I downloaded the digital patterned paper called "Preserve it Oranges & strawberries" too - so I am all prepared.  I also got the digital stamp set called "Well Preserved"!

Until next time, have a great day!
