Jammin'



The weather has been amazingly beautiful this week, and we have spent the majority of our waking time outside. The neighbor kids have been out playing, and Henry has loved joining in on the fun. I also enjoy talking to the other mommies that are outside playing with their kiddos. It's been such a nice break from TV and other indoor activities, and we're starting to feel like we really know and enjoy our new neighbors.

Speaking of beautiful weather, strawberries are now in season! I got a big batch of them at Costco this week, and Henry and I made freezer jam. Yes, I did say Henry and I. Here's the pictures for proof!

Mixing it up (with his fingers) and trying a little bit out from time to time....

I must add that he "helped" after I had already poured the jam into the jars. This was just the dregs. He DID insist upon watching me do it though...thus the chair in the picture.

After he had gotten all he could with his fingers he decided to try drinking it....


After he couldn't "drink" anymore, he decided to stick his entire head into the bowl....


Needless to say Henry loves strawberry jam just as much as his daddy does. Preston made a pb&j for lunch for the rest of the week.

With Spring just a few days away I hope this weather is here to stay. Now all I need is a tan (yeah right!)!
