Summer Treats

Things have been going well here, my little guy has been going out into our  pool, and we have just been having a lot of fun. We even made him a "water slide."

We have been looking for more things to do outside and we have been going to the park a lot. I think today we are going to take our finger paints (for some reason I always want to type that as one word instead of two, I don't know why.) outside. However most of the time when we go out he wants to head straight for the pool. I love all of this warm weather and that the official start of summer is coming soon!

 I wanted to share a recipe for a super yummy treat that we have been making, courtesy of Once a Month Mom

Strawberry Freezer Pops


  • 1.5 cups fresh strawberries, washed & sliced
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • .125 cups water


Mix strawberries and sugar in a large bowl.  Allow to sit for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.   Place strawberries in blender and add water, pulse until all strawberries are blended and mixture is runny. Divide among ice cube trays and freeze until solid.  For a “stick”, I insert a plastic baby soon in each cube before freezing.  These can be frozen in small plastic cups for a larger size freezer pop.

Freezing Directions:

Follow directions above. After puree is frozen solid, gently loosen and divide among indicated number of freezer bags. TO SERVE: Remove from freezer and enjoy!

We made ours without sticks and serve them in a little cup with a spoon, because he really likes to use spoons.  They get messy so serve them outdoors, and I take his shirt off for them. If you have really good strawberries you can even cut the sugar.
