We love strawberries at our house... like, we would eat them for all of our meals and all our snack and become great big strawberries if we could. So, I thought it would be fun to go and pick our own. Plus fresh strawberries are WAY better then the ones at the store! My youngest is just starting to get to the age where she can do more things independently, so that means more outing for us!! Yay!
We went to our local Orchard/Farm... they have apples and pumpkins in the fall and strawberries in the summer. It was a warm and sunny day so we went early. It was a good thing too, because it was the last day of picking so we just squeaked in! Phew!
It started out like this... both kids were very into picking the RED ones!
But it turned to this after only a couple of minutes....
I am pretty sure they lost money on us since most of our strawberries were eaten before we made it to get weighed.
My son just wanted to play with the flag they gave us to mark our spot.
"Ok, honey- can you just pretend that you are picking strawberries for me to get a picture??"
"Yeah- sure mom."
I ended up picking most of the berries while trying to keep the kids from bugging other people. But at the end of the day both kids said it was their favorite thing of the day! AND we got some YUMMY strawberries to boot! I see this becoming a summer tradition!
What have you been doing with your kids lately?
