Weekend Shenanigans

It has been a long time since I did a weekend post on a Monday. Probably because for the longest time, there wasn’t much to report. But there have been several weekends these last few months I really wish I wrote about, they hold so many little memories. Figured this weekend was as good as any to jump back in!

Saturday morning when Zoe and I took Mac outside, we realized how nice it felt. I looked up the weather for the day and realized the high was 72. What?? A little while later I came and sat on the couch next to Chris and said, “We should have gone to the strawberry patch or something today.” Chris said, “Well, we still can.” And just like that, our plans formed.

We headed to Deloach Farms. It sits between Pell City and Vincent, right on the St Clair County/Shelby County line. We were worried it was going to be crowded since the weather was gorgeous, but there weren’t many people there at all. We got our baskets and got to picking. Zoe LOVED it and said several times how fun it was and when can we come back. After we were done picking, Chris asked the owner if he could fly his drone over the field and they happily agreed and asked that if he got good footage, could he send it to them. They were so sweet. I definitely hope to go back one more time during the season.

When we left, Zoe had to go potty and I quickly looked on Google for a gas station. I noticed that there was a large body of water near us so I zoomed out….and realized we were right next to Logan Martin! Since Chris had his drone, I asked if he wanted to go fly it over the lake and maybe find somewhere to eat. We went to Pier 59 first. While we didn’t really have a desire to eat there, Chris did fly his drone around. We hopped back in the car and skipped down to the next pier where Coosa Island Grill is. They had the best deck that sat right on the lake. It was such a gorgeous day, we had a leisurely lunch while we watched boats zip on by.

For Mother’s Day, Chris surprised me with a Cricut! I am not even sure what all it can do, but I can’t wait to find out! He also ordered me some shoes from my wish list that are coming today. Chris and Zoe took me out to La Cazuela for lunch. After, we went to Michael’s to grab some vinyl for my Cricut, and then walked around Ollie’s.

The sweet items Zoe made me at school for Mother’s Day

We made homemade strawberry ice cream from the berries we picked at DeLoach and played Mario Party. Zoe and I took a walk, and then we went and picked up Jim n Nick’s for dinner. It was such a lovely day.

    Awww yay! That strawberry patch looks so fun!! And then to have lunch by the lake??? Yes please! And I love that you got spoiled on Mother’s Day – you definitely deserve it. Yes to homemade strawberry ice cream – that is my most favorite flavor (but only homemade – you know my love of mint chocolate chip).

    I cant wait to see what you do with your cricut – I never understand how it works. My brother has one & uses it & I love all the things from it… but I’m just confused by it all.
    Love Zoe’s little strawberry dress – dress for the occassion.
