Strawberry Picking

The best part of summer is that it’s filled with fun family activities and traditions. Example one: strawberry picking.

When Anne mentioned the near by strawberry fields were open for picking, I was totally on board. So we packed up the kids and what felt like the entire house, and headed out in search of some delicious Erdbeeren! Bending over, searching through leaves in the hot sun is hard work, but biting into a fresh, juicy strawberry makes it all worth it. I must admit, I became slightly obsessed with finding the perfect strawberry. As soon as I’d find one I thought was the perfect size, shape and color, I’d find one that looked just the slightest bit bigger and sweeter. This of course resulted in me eating most of them before they reached the basket!

^He didn’t quite understand the concept of picking them to eat later. He’s more of a right now kind of guy!

^6 kilograms of strawberries. That should last us a day or two 🙂

Although my search for the perfect strawberry was destined to go unfulfilled, I still had a blast! And now I’m off to eat a slice of strawberry cake, washed down with a strawberry milkshake of course. Have a fabulous week friends.IMG_6902.JPG
^Shameless strawberry selfie.

  1. Micah, I just realized who you are staying and working with. This is a family that knows Paul and Paula Giboney and also who stayed at my house one time. I picked them up at the beach. So, you are staying with some wonderful people who are very experienced and doing a good work. Please give them my regards. Blessings, Grandma Susan
