Black Raspberry Picking

You guessed it.......we picked again. This is one of the reasons why we love Ohio. We get to pick fresh fruit all summer long. Most of the berries you see in the picture will be picked by us next week. They are still red and need to be a DARK purple/black. Red raspberries will not be here until August.
All of the girls had a good time and we get to eat as we pick.
We pulled into the driveway and got in the house about 5 minutes before it rained.
Now I get to freeze some and make a pie with the rest.
I could not decide on what pictures to put on so I put them all.

Anthony-Thomas Candy Company

Since Cory is off this week, I decided we would do lots of things together as a family.
This morning we went to a library show and then headed off to the Anthony -Thomas Candy Company for a tour.

The tour was only about 1/2 an hour and we only got ONE piece of chocolate. Now, those of you who know me know that this was a BIG disappointment. They gave us one of the Buckeyes and they were very good.

Overall the tour was okay. The kids liked being there together and getting the candy but the tour was not too exciting for them. I guess Kelly was more interested than McKenna. After the tour they each picked out candy and so did I. They are pretty good but they still don't compare to See's Candy!

Kelly's Dance Recital

Last Saturday, Kelly had her dance recital. They danced to the song Rockin' Robin. They did a really good job. She was very nervous when we left her before the show but after the show she kept on telling us how fun it was up on stage.

Of course you can't see her well but she is the front one in the first picture and on the far left in the second one. We really need to get a new camera.

Months ago Kelly kept telling us that she just wants to do gymnastics now. We had her finish all of the dance class just so she could be sure and experience the recital and she loved the recital but she still LOVES gymnastics more.
We are now going to a new place that does ONLY gymnastics. She has gone twice and loves it.

McKenna's Tubes

McKenna went to Nationwide Children's Hospital today to get tubes put in her ears. This is her right before we left to go to the hospital.She was in a good mood most of the time. We waited in the room for a while after they took vitals.

McKenna had to change into comfy jammies. She looked so cute and thought it was funny that she had to wear no underwear with the jammies.

So cute!!!

She fell asleep on me after waiting an hour. About 10 minutes after she fell asleep they came to get her so it was then that she became a bit grouchy.
When it was time to leave her, she fussed just a bit and I did not hear any crying all they way down the hall.

When she got back to the room I kept telling her that she went to sleep but she insists that she didn't.
They let her pick a scent to smell while getting the laughing gas and she picked strawberry.
She did so good and has no idea what happened even though I try to tell her.

She got to have an orange popscicle after!

Rain Dance

Tonight was so fun!
As we were starting dinner, there were big storm clouds rolling in very fast. As we finished dinner it started to rain. I suggested going out in the rain to play and Cory was shocked. He says I don't do things like that.

Well........I do!
The girls got their bathing suits on and I changed my clothes.
We played out for a while and ran around the driveway. I LOVE when it pours on you.

Even daddy came out and had fun.

We did not let Camille out so she watched from the front door. She was okay with it.

We did not get any pictures of Kelly in the rain because by the time we thought of the camera she was drying off and did not want to go out again.

It was around 75 degrees so it was kind of warm.
It started thundering and lightening a lot so we would run into the garage.

When we came in we changed into our jammies and had hot chocolate with mini marshmallows.

Strawberry Picking Saturday

Saturday we went strawberry picking at Hann Farm in Grove City.
Of course I forgot the camera so I got a shot of the end product at home.
Don't they look perfect?
They taste even better!
We cut up and froze a lot so we can use them all summer for smoothies.
That is something they don't have here in Ohio....

Kelly got a new bathing suit so she had to put it on and McKenna had to put on Kelly's old one.

Cory bought a cheap playstation 2 on Craigslist . It came with games and McKenna was trying it out up in the guest room.
