Strawberry picking!

Yes, we indeed went strawberry picking yesterday. It was a perfect day for it too. Overcast and a bit of a breeze. The boys were unsure if they would like it but as soon as they got on the trailer full of hail bales pulled by a tractor to take us to the fields, they changed their tune. They each got a basket and then went to town. And for a little over an hour I watched as the two of them worked together. They helped each other fill their baskets trying to find the perfect berry. They laughed and chatted. There was no fighting...no refereeing by mom. It was perfect. I got some great pics too.


A 4qt basket full, and I mean overflowing is only 7.50! On the way out we stopped in the store and bought some cherries and zucchini, all grown on this farm. The boys just could not stop saying how much fun they had during the car ride home. I'd say we got our moneys worth!
