Jaina and Jayce have been multiple times. In fact, Jayce's first time at a strawberry patch was when he was just 2 weeks old. I searched for a picture but didn't find any. Probably because I had my hands full with a 3 year old and a newborn. And I was strawberry picking. What was I thinking??
But I did find these gems :)
She got the hang of it pretty quickly.
The sun was out in full force and very bright. Its difficult to shoot in these lighting conditions so I was definitely out of my comfort zone.
It took her all of 10 minutes to pick a quart size basket full of berries. Unlike the other kids, she refused to eat any until we were home "and the green things were cut off".
While we waited for our friends to finish picking, she found joy in the tree swings next to the strawberry patch.
Swinging, hands down, won out over strawberry picking.
We had a lovely time chatting with the other moms and kids. There was even a dog named Cupcake that came over to play.
I'd call the outing a success. Even if big sister Jaina did come home from school and eat half the strawberries in one sitting.
Next time we'll get the gallon size :)
