Strawberry Fields

Today Noah and I spent the morning picking strawberries with our friends Rex and Danni - a really fun activity for the kids but also a great opportunity for learning.  We spent time talking about the colour red and checking the fruit for ripeness.  Wonderful for the boys to understand that food doesn't come from plastic punnets on the supermarket shelf.  The added bonus is that the fruit tasted amazing.  This afternoon I made a batch of muffins for the weekend - banana, strawberry and passionfruit (fresh from our backyard) and dropped some off to Dan & Rex to enjoy too.

Rex- I hate that he has a fly on his face but look how darn happy is with his strawberries

Random trivia - when I logged on to google this afternoon it told me that it's John Lennon's 70th birthday - spooky that we visited a place called Strawberry Fields today.

Sunday's date is 10/10/10 - I love number patterns - can't help seeing them in all kinds of places.

Happy Weekending to you all
