Today, the kids (minus Corban who was @ school and Hudson who stayed with my Grandparents) and I visited a local farm to pick some strawberries. We met my sweet friend, Celia, and her gang there for a morning of fun.
The berries were beautifully ripe and PERFECT for picking! Strawberry season is always a reminder to me that spring is coming to an end and summer is quickly approaching!!!
Riley did a great job picking.
He had fun hunting for the biggest and juiciest strawberries.
Sophie on the other hand, was much more interested in eating the berries than she was in picking them.
Check out her face, hands, and dress. She was COVERED in RED strawberry juice!!
and ate the berries!!!
Every time I turned around this girl had another berry in her mouth;)!
Amy and Riley worked hard to fill their big buckets.
A group pic...and YES, Sophie was still eating the berries!!!;)
After our buckets were full, we headed to the barn where they were weighed, and then we paid according to price per pound.
Seriously ya'll, we should have weighed Sophie before we started picking, and then again after we finished.
That girl enjoyed her some berries!!!!!
Unfortunately, that big bucket of strawberries won't last long in this house.
They'll be gone in no time!!!
Hopefully I'll have enough to make a pie, but I better act soon...they're disappearing FAST!
