Summer has yet to really show up around here, but Molly and I decided we cannot wait forever for her to arrive, so we bundled the kids up and took them strawberry picking.  The girls and I have never been so I was excited to experience for the first time with them.  With the deluge of rain we’ve been having and the colder than average temperatures finding a patch that was open for picking was a little tough, but we did.  Winter hats, puddle boots and all, we made a morning of our adventure and had tons of fun.

When we got home and I washed the berries, I realized we may not have picked the best of the best of the berries, but it doesn’t matter.  The kids pulled the majority of what we bought and with each one they showed us how great they thought their berry was.

Mikayla, in true toddler form, enjoyed the experience in her own way.  She was thrilled to pull any reddish fruit from the vine.  She didn’t understand to not walk (or sit) on the plants so there were a few strawberry casualties along the way.

Winter hats or not, rain or sunshine, it didn’t matter.  We made the most of our day and I can’t wait to enjoy the fresh strawberries-dipped in melted chocolate chips of course!
