Strawberry Fun!

I took a half day off a few Fridays back and picked up my two favorite neice-ies and headed to my mom's house for some strawberry picking fun.

 There was a quick lunch and then pictures...

 Then we got our shoes on and loaded up...
 When we got to the strawberry farm, we checked out the animals first...
 Then we headed to the fields...sadly, there had been terribly picked over due to the farm scheduling all of the school field trips on the same week (approx. 400 kids!) we laboriously went down almost four rows and found...almost nothing!
 This was our ENTIRE haul...haha! My mom wanted to make strawberry jelly, wasn't happening this time! So we sat down and ate every one of them right there on the spot.
 And I took a picture of a picture! (I am such a big fan of my instant camera!)
 Then we went home where Grandma had all the fixings for pedicures...Auntie Amber also got a pedicure from was very fun!
 Tori wanted to sit still and get her nails painted too!
 Somebody was having a good time... 
 Then, we played with sidewalk chalk!
 Tori colored in all the letters....
 And Taylor got chalk all over her nose!
 Then, after a visit to see Nanny's dog Annie, they headed off.  But I think we packed quite a bit of fun in half of a day! :)  All the credit goes to Grandma, who had quite and adventure planned out (and good snacks to go with it!)
Have a great day! Amber

Tori's Birthday Party & Card

I went out for Tori's actual birthday with her mom & school friends to Red Elephant (and Uncle Adam & I bought balloons!) but these pictures are from her birthday party a few weeks later....she is the cutest little monkey...I love her so!  Special thanks to Adam's cousin, Jeni Lee for making her really, really cute shirt.  She is one of my two favorite little girls! (Bet you can't guess who the other one is! ;)
And - her birthday card!
Miss Tori, I can't believe you're four! XO, Auntie Amber
