Picking Strawberries

     I had wanted to go berry picking for a while, but Jen's post on Southern Amor, inspired me to do it sooner rather than later.    I took each of the babies out into the fields individually for their first berry picking experience.  It was wonderful for them to learn firsthand where strawberries come from.

Grayson had fun gathering berries

and Capri shared his delight.


Ryder took in his whole surroundings at close range


while Xayden had eyes only for the strawberry.


The farm fresh berries were a special treat.

    The berry picking adventure was so much fun.  Afterwards, we eyed the calendar and made plans to return to pick other fruits and vegetables when they are in season.  I think the raspberries are calling my name...  Have you gone to a farm to pick produce?  I would love to hear your stories.  As always, comments are welcome.

Hi Momof4Va.

Berry picking is fun. I love your post about all of the fun uses for laundry baskets! Thanks for sharing it on Multiples Monday. I think you will have many families pulling out their baskets to try your great ideas.
