We went strawberry picking today with my friend Beth and her daughters Rose and Gaby.  It was such an awesome day outside.  I'm ashamed to say I'd never been strawberry picking and I was worried it was going to be this gigantic wide-open field where Maggie would just go nuts stomping all over the plants.  Thankfully, they were in perfect rows and she loved carrying the bucket and picking her own..."Mmmmmm".  She kept calling them apples - at least she's got the right color.  We got two gallons so we'll probably all turn into strawberries within a few days!

Girls Rock!

Just got back from an awesome girls weekend with my best friends from college, Kendra and Stacey, and all of our little girls.  I guess it has become a semi-annual tradition.  This time we went to the beach and enjoyed a weekend of sunshine and 80 degree temps!!  Highlights of the weekend included many encounters with and talk of spiders, snakes, crab, and alligators - sounds like we were really roughing it, huh???  

Here we all are!  We've come a long way since the Lee Dorm days at NCSU!  If M2 turns out to be a boy, poor guy will look so adorable in his big floppy hat!  From left to right, Kendra ("Inda") with Devyn ("Debyn") and Courtney ("Corky"), Maggie and me, and Stacey ("Tacy") and Bethany ("Boo") - those are Maggie's name interpretations.

Here's Maggie at the castle, as usual, running from Mama.
