Jam Session

I'll tell you two of the best things about living close to my sisters-in-law: they are motivated and they are inclusive. When they are doing something awesome like having lunch or making strawberry jam I am invited. It is the best, because I would probably never do these things on my own.

Today we made strawberry freezer jam at Sara's house. I kind of wish I took pictures of all of us in Sara's cute aprons, but I only got a shot of the massive amounts of jam we made. I personally walked away with 24 jars. Yes, I have tasted it. Yes, it is delicious.

Afterward we had a joint birthday lunch for Amy and Rachel at an amazing restaurant called Joe's Farm Grill. (This is one of the first eateries Dan and I experienced in AZ. I should probably do an extra blog entry about how awesome it is.) Truth be told it was Amy's 5th birthday lunch or something, but nobody is complaining. We love to get together. And Rachel needed one anyway.

I missed my zumba class at the gym, but I suppose that is alright every once in a while.

That's a lot of jam!

It was a fun day. Yummy food and jars and jars of success. What a great day!

You are lucky to be close to your sister in law's... especially since they are so fun. Heck, they are not my sister in laws and I would LOVE to hang out with them and do these things.
Kristy invited me to make strawberry jam with her... seeing this and imagining how it tastes... I will have to do that now. :o)
P.S. I thought this was going to be about a music jam session when I read the title. Ha ha

Are you going to have to keep 24 jars of jam in your freezer? That's the only reason I don't make freezer jam because it IS very yummy.

Wow, good work. I tried to make some freezer jam once and it didn't work out for me. Yours looks awesome.
