Strawberry Festival

We have been all about all things strawberry! We went the the Strawberry Festival in downtown Durham a couple weeks back (I know I am way behind posting). It is a school fundraiser festival. I love that about it, everyone was running around and knew each other (except us). We played with bubbles, got our face painted, ate strawberry shortcake, strawberry lemonade, and a peppermint lemon. OK, so what is a peppermint lemon? It was a lemon with a hole in it and one of those fat peppermint sticks stuck down in it. You are supposed to drink the juice through the stick, but our boys just ate the stick so we ened up spending $2 on a peppermint stick. The little bit I was able to drink was yummy though. And then I had fun just squeezing lemon juice into the boys' mouths ;)

Ben shook after I gave him this taste of lemon

Zeke tried to bite the lemon

I was so proud of Zeke for sitting and getting his face painted.
And he was so proud to show it off!
