Feeling Berry Good

We've had strawberries in our garden since we started a garden almost 10 years ago. Never have we had the amount that we are getting this year. Everyday for the last week, we've been able to pick about 2 quarts. It's been awesome. You know they taste WAY better than those mammoth ones that are sold in the stores.

Our weekend was a productive one. Rummage sale Friday and Saturday followed by a huge family party Sunday. We celebrated my two June kids birthdays. Monday, I hauled all the rummage stuff to our church, their rummage is in two weeks. I'm so glad I don't have to deal with getting rid of what doesn't sell now. Saturday, I had my monthly weigh in. Finally, back to 200. It's a battle and I'm sure it will continue to be so, but most of the time, I feel like I'm headed in the right direction.

Ever try getting 8 kids to look at you for a picture?

June Birthdays sharing a cake. She'll get her own this weekend.

What a happy kid!

Oh my that cakes looks like a winner. Of course it is sugar free, fat free, all things bad for you free; no? Congrats on getting 200 back in hand.

Even though they weren't all looking, the picture still turned out alright. Happy Birthday to the June birthday's. :)

Great post - can you send some strawberries??? Please??! We have strawberry plants but they're not close to being ready yet...you're giving me hope though!

Nice kiddo pics! I love the updates!

Oh and great job on getting back on track...maybe if you lose, I will too (since our weights are FAR TOO similar!) ;)
