It is no secret that our family likes to eat! My husband and I first bonded over all-you-can-eat spaghetti, our favorite family gatherings involve meals, I love to cook, and we are teaching our children the same.
One of Superhero’s favorite things to do in the summer is pick ripe berries. I usually make something out of them: pancakes, cobblers, or just put them in smoothies. This week has been especially warm, and Superhero Son desperately wants the berries to be ripe.
We took several walks this week and found blooms on the raspberries and blackberries. He got all excited! Then! Yes, then! We stumbled upon the mulberry tree. It is loaded!
Superhero Son is now anxiously awaiting the time when we walk to the tree and find ripe berries instead of green.
Since he was so bummed, we made black forest brownies. They were yummy! Darling Daughter especially loved them.
We also had to relieve the heat somehow, so we pulled the crab pool and sprinkler out when my in-laws came over. Now that June is here, school is almost out, and the temps are rising, BRING ON SUMMER!
What is your family up to this week?
