I want to start by writing, Thank you to everyone who voted for Henry last week. He started out in the 5,600's and ended up in 361st place. I think that is a pretty good finish. While he did not win this week he still has a chance to be chosen by the judges. You just never know what could happen.
As for the weekend, we had a wonderful time with family and friends. Friday night we hung out outside, drank way too much wine! Saturday we had a little BBQ over our house that night. I think we thought we were back in college because we played drinking games with beer box hats and what not.
Sunday we got up and went over to the Great Country Farm in Bluemont, VA. We thought it would be fun to take Henry strawberry picking. He loved the tractor ride out to the patch and also had fun in the patch. He didn't get the concept of actually picking the berry off the bush but he enjoyed throwing them.
After the picking we went and looked at the farm animals. Henry loved the goats but was scared of the mini horses. You just never know with this kid.
We BBQ'd again that night. We all know I am not much of a cook but I can find some mean recipes. I was on the hunt for a Blue Cheese Burger recipe. The one we found was amazing. We modified a little by removing the hot sauce the receipe called for and then we added crumbled up bacon to the mixture. Afer Charlie grilled we put some more blue cheese on the top and it was sweet perfection!
After dinner we enjoyed the wonderful strawberries that we picked that day! A little strawberry shortcake to end the perfect weekend with family and friends.
