I love strawberries - they are one of my absolute favorite fruits. There are so many ways to eat them, and delicious recipes to try -- mmmm.
This year for our Canada Day celebration I will be making a fruit pizza - and I know I will be topping it with delicious strawberries. While I do eat them year round, they don't taste the same outside of our berry season.
Yesterday, a friend and I took our children to Richmond Nurseries Strawberry Farm to pick strawberries (what a great way to spend a morning) we managed to get a few full baskets.
Afterwards, back to their place for lunch and a swim - and I am so proud of Julien. Julien has a fear of water; he always says he wants to swim, but he clings to me terrified the whole time we are in the pool. My cousin and I had some progress last year getting him to go between the 2 of us (standing about 3 feet apart) but with lack of pool time it quickly disappeared.
Yesterday was his first swim this year, and while he did start off clinging to me he ended up going around the whole pool (wearing his life jacket) and using a pool noodle. I was so proud of him - now if only we can keep him in the water for the rest of the summer......
