Messy Monday and More

This afternoon after school, I took the kids to pick strawberries. It was a great day. Not too hot and the berries were plentiful. We picked 3 gallons. I shouldn't have used the word "we". I mostly picked and they mostly ate. Of course, I forgot my camera. I tried to take some pics with my phone and I'm not sure how to pull them off and download them. I never use my phone to take pictures.

When we got home, I did get a couple of pictures of Maci Clare. She loved the strawberry pickin' (eatin')!

She was a mess!

When we got home, the guys were here working on the pool. We walked down to the pool and our first guest was in the pool.

I thought he was kinda big. Zane wanted to keep him in a cage for show and tell. I said absolutely not.

One of the guys told the boys they could go swimming. So this is what followed.

Gabe stayed in the longest.

Zane jumped in first but he couldn't stand it because it was so cold.

Jack was just content to sit on the side. I dipped him in a couple of times. But he wanted out pretty fast. It was really cold. And there are a lot of trash and leaves in the pool. They were just hooking up the filter and pump and electricity. I did go out there tonight and scoop some of the trash off the top and it is starting to look better now that everything is running. We were hoping to swim on Memorial Day but it going to have to be a lot warmer than it is now.

Yum ... strawberries. Too funny about forgetting the camera, sounds like me. Looks like you all had a good time. By the way, I'm adding you to my blogroll. I was surprised I didn't already have you on there.
