Well, the warm weather is finally here (Sophia has been anxiously waiting)...at least for this weekend. Mamapua got me wanting some fresh strawberries, so we headed over to Sequim to pick some. I think Sequim is pretty close to paradise...just a hop away from the rain forest, it is beautiful and fertile farmland right on the edge of the ocean...What more could you want? Here we are picnicking before we start our picking...hey that sounds like a tongue twister :)

Yummy! It was hard to stop picking...we could have done it all day. It was a strawberry milkshake, strawberry shortcake and strawberry syrupy pancake weekend. MMMmmm.
After a "hard" days picking we were off to the beach to collect treasures, build forts and rest.
Later in the weekend, the girls helped their dad wash the car - Noah helped too...in his own way :). The reward for the girls was a fun soak in the sprinklers. Summer Days...
Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Psalm 106:1
These days seem so precarious...It is good to take time out and give thanks for simple pleasures.
