Raspberries & Ruby

I'm a bad mom. I don't buy my kids raspberries! I know, you're gasping in shock right now ... well, get over it! lol I don't buy them because I don't like them. Most fruit I buy, I make sure I like because the kids start eating it & then forget about it & guess who (go ahead & try) gets to eat the rest. They had raspberries at Jenny's house earlier this week & thought they were just fabulous. Jenny invited the kids to come pick fresh raspberries off her bush (or is it a plant?) Thursday & they were THRILLED to do so. I brought small bowls for them because I didn't know how many there were ... the bowls were NOT big enough for the amount the kids wanted to pick. They very much enjoyed the picking process & we're so thankful to Jenny for letting us. And, just so you know, I did try one & raspberries just aren't for me.
(Thanks Jenny!!!)
Andrea & her family went camping this week and asked if Callie would water their plants/veggies and also fishsit Jenna's fish, Ruby. She was MORE than happy to do so. She loved having Ruby sitting on our counter to greet her each morning & to watch her eat all her meals. Who knew that fishsitting would be so satisfying? lol Andrea came to pick up Ruby today & we're all missing her a little. It was fun to watch her swim in circles ... oh the exciting life we do lead!! haha

Did Ruby get in trouble for swimming in circles? The sign very clearly states NO Swimming!

Raspberries are AWESOME!!! Archer eats a flat at a time...lucky he doesn't get sick!

Wow...those raspberries look delicious!!!

Ruby is quite the little fish, and I can't blame her for disobeying the 'no swimming' sign...too cute!

Wow...I can't believe someone hasn't called child services on you yet. Not buying your children raspberries??? LOL I totally understand, though!

Oddly enough, I was at the store earlier today and I wanted some fruit to snack on, so I was checking out the raspberries. I passed on them because I thought they were too expensive. Can you send me some from the bush/plant?

I'm just going to say that "fishsit" is a very, very interesting word.
