Time to catch up! Tune in over the next week for a peek into our crazy, but oh-so-fun last month!!
Let me take you back to almost a month ago...STRAWBERRY PICKING!! I knew May was going to really pick up and I would miss those wonderful, juicy strawberries (again!!) if I didn't squeeze in a day for picking - better bring the fam. Boy did we have a great time!!
We started with a quick lesson on WHAT to pick: BIG, RED, and NOT SQUISHY
First things first - a taste test!
better try another!
Maybe just one more!
Meanwhile, Ethan gets busy...
Daddy and Kate join in...How ya doin' Luke? Let's see the strawberry YOU picked!The picking continues...Luke sits down for a break... this picking (eating) is hard work!!
Ethan finally stops for a little snack.Proud boy with the fruits of his labor! Let's do it again!!
We came home with 20 lbs of berries! What did we do with them??? Ate, ate, ate some more. We made strawberry rhubarb pie, fruit salsa, waffles with strawberries and cream, pancakes with strawberries, this WONDERFUL strawberry frozen dessert, strawberry popsicles, and we ate some more! Jelly was really the thing I had in my mind as we picked, but our time ran out. Maybe next year!!
