So I did my annual Summer of Awesome list (which isn’t really done yet) and this weekend we decided (I decided) to pack a bunch of stuff in.
On Saturday I spend all day at Ladies Learning Code (which was awesome and I’m going to post about it at the FiveTwoTwo blog). When Joe and the kid picked me up we headed out for dinner and then off to the RCMP’s Sunset Ceremony.
We didn’t get to see the musical ride portion of the evening, but the Mounties always put on a good show, and the demonstration by some Search and Rescue dogs was pretty great.
On Sunday the kid, Grandma and I headed out to pick up my sister. We had a nice patio breakfast and then headed strawberry picking. It’s one of those things I remember fondly from when I was a kid and my own daughter was very excited when I told her we would go.
She was thrilled the whole time we were out in the fill and didn’t want to leave. I think she’ll be even more thrilled to eat the berries we brought home.
On Sunday afternoon I decided that maybe it was time to put our ice cream maker to good use. I filled it up with vanilla, cream and some sugar and we kicked the ball around for a bit. (See: Awesome ice cream maker).
And then we ate the strawberries and ice cream together, as you do.
