strawberry fields

It is berry pickin' time again!

The girls and I went and picked berries with our friend, Jasmine, last September (raspberries). Jasmine sent me a text a few weeks ago and said that it was now time to fill our freezer full of strawberries!

It has been raining here for the past 200 years, so we were unsure what the ground would be like...I was prepared and had the girls wear their rainboots. Thankfully the ground wasn't that saturated and we had a nearly mudless adventure.

Our friend, Danielle, also came along to pick some are all the kids.
Sydney and Elyn "helping" Jasmine.
Nice shot of Nora, I know. She was my little helper. She filled up an entire pint all by herself.
"What are we going to do with all of these berries Mom? I don't know if we can fit any more in our crate."
"I'll solve that, I'll just eat the ones that are spilling out of the top."
It was a fun day picking strawberries! We can't wait to enjoy the fruits of our labor (I know, sorry).

Nora looks so big in that picture where she is eating the strawberry. Hey I actually posted something on my blog! Not any pictures, but I did post an entry. It's an improvement anyway.
