Weekend Happenings

Friday Night- As many of you know, Jim and I love baseball, and more specifically the Texas Rangers. In fact, in the Fall, we are going to be playing on a co-ed softball team. So, for a fun date night, we went to the Plex (a local putt-putt, go-kart, batting cages, arcade, and laser tag place in town) to the batting cages. The score was Sarah 7 Jim 4*, which means, I won. (The * denotes that Jim's machine ran out of balls and so for the last 4 pitches, there was nothing. I guess technically he could have beat me, but probably not!) Here are some pictures:




After the batting cages, we went to eat at United Marketstreet and then went to Academy to buy two gloves and a baseball. We bought the baseball because it was super cheap, but looking at the gloves was overwhelming, and expensive, so we didn't get gloves.
Saturday- We got up at 8:30 am to headed with my Mom and some of my brothers and sisters to Charlie to pick strawberries. Here is a picture:

It rained on us pretty much the whole time but it was so fun and peaceful, and made me want to buy some land somewhere and build a house on and have some chickens and strawberries.

Sunday- Jim (with my help towards the end) made strawberry jam from the strawberries we picked on Saturday. Here is the jars:

When my Mom made it for us last time, it was the best Jam we had ever had! Hopefully, ours is good too!
