Strawberry Picking for Family Fun Friday

Have you figured out this week's theme?

Strawberries!!!


Last weekend we went berry picking with friends. It's a tradition for us

 

This year we took the two daddies with us AND introduced the two toddlers to the delight of eating a fresh picked strawberry. 


Ben tried a couple right along with Sam!


William probably did most of our picking.  We brought home 4.5 pounds of red berries!

But I think the prize for Most Berries Eaten in the Field goes to Ellie!  Complete with a VERY non-ladylike burp in the middle of the berry patch!!!  It's not her first time to enjoy strawberries in the field and I'm sure it won't be the last time either!

If you are looking for a fun outing with your children I highly recommend a U Pick strawberry farm!!  It's a great way to kick off summer!

Do you have any early summer traditions?  Please share them with us.

How smart to put them in Red Shirts! We love to go blueberry picking every summer. There's nothing like fresh berries! Do you freeze yours to use through the year? We always have tons of frozen blueberries for pancakes and muffins!

Thanks Sarah! There is NOTHING like fresh berries from the farm. Unfortunately I don't have the space to freeze berries but I hope to one day!
