Guess Who Stopped by our House!

Mr. and Mrs. Field! They came by just in time for a dinner. We ate spice girl bread (love that recipe Wendy!), sugar snap peas (from Rick's aunt's garden), and grilled steel head, which Rick caught and bbq for us. (He caught it last summer, not Sunday during church :)
They are a cute, fun couple. Today they are taking the 3 older kids to play in the Columbia River. It is so fun to have family visit; note to other family members....start visiting-Rick will bbq for you!

First Fruits of the Season

Our strawberries are getting ripe! We've now picked a couple baskets full of the beautiful red berries. Yesterday I took some to work, they were a hot commodity. Too bad no one had anything worth trading for. Today we made 2 batches of freezer jam and froze a bag of crushed berries to make jam later in the year. We also made scones and topped them with strawberries and whipping cream. What a yummy treat! My fingers are stained a lovely shade of pink in preparation for tomorrows harvest. Tomorrow's treat: strawberry pie!

What did I do with my scan card? I would have taken pictures of my cute berry pickers and jam makers but couldn't find it anywhere. Note to self: find card or buy a new one before trip to Utah!

That Magical Age!

18 Months!
Today Cristine reached the magical age where she is suddenly able to attend the Nursery at Church. Since I am already in the Nursery, she's been attending for the last 8 months. This morning another assistant was called, so I decided to attend Relief Society. Crissy was great, and didn't get upset when I left the room. Now hopefully she'll continue to enjoy it on her own!
