On Friday, I took the kids on our first trip to a real farm to pick strawberries. We had a great time! We joined a small group of friends for a little morning field trip.
I love this picture. That sweet baby hand stuffed more strawberries in his mouth than he dropped in the bucket though! I had Faith in the baby carrier and honestly wasn't fast enough or motivated enough or physically able to keep him from eating quite a few. He gave a new meaning to "being caught red-handed"!
Posing with our bucket of treasure!
All dressed up to go strawberry pickin'.
I'll admit that, up close, picking strawberries was sort of more artificial than the idyllic field of strawberries I had envisioned. Each row was covered in this black material with vents and a built-in watering system. It was still fun, though. :)
