Strawberry Picking

One of our favorite things to do is to visit the Pick Your Own farms in our area. If you've ever wanted to find a place near where you live, a great website to visit is this website.

Strawberries are at their prime right now, so our family trekked out to Lever Farms this afternoon to pick our fill. We returned with nearly three gallons of beautiful ripe strawberries, and three very red children!

I'm pretty sure there was never a pair as happy as the twins! I brought their little mesh eating tool (you put food in it, and they suck it through the mesh bag... no choking!) and they ate a TON of strawberries. The only part they didn't like was when Mommy had to refill it. Eli, who is still developing patience, screamed every time until I could get a new strawberry loaded in his mesh bag.

Needless to say, we had to strip the twins down to their diapers before loading them in the car, and all three kids went straight from the car to the bath tub. Now its nap time for the kiddos, and Scott too.

And when Emily wakes up, we're making strawberry jam!

I love days like this with my family!

Very fun! I love those mesh feed bags too. Great idea to bring them along.
