The theme this Sunday: STRAWBERRIES!
The girls and I picked oodles of strawberries from our garden this week, and I suppose we had strawberries on the brain.
I made a spinach/strawberry salad to accompany our grilled burgers and hot dogs. (Here it is sans the blue cheese, pecans, and raspberry vinaigrette.)
Kristin brought some chunks of fresh pineapple, and we added some strawberries, of course.
Kati made two strawberry pies yesterday. One was for dessert this afternoon. The other was to take to Ron's mom's house when we visited this evening. Yum!
The other theme of the day: Pictures!
Kristin and Brian were subjected to all 1033 of our vacation pictures. We spent so much time looking at pictures and telling our stories, that I didn't even take any pictures of the dear people in our house today. I will have to record the moments in my mind instead...from the moment they all came in the back door for the first time in three weeks, to Alaine's sweet smile and enthusiastic wave as their van left our driveway.
