Strawberry Picking

Yesterday Michael, Katie and I went strawberry picking. We also went with a friend and her little boy and another friend and her little girl. Everyone had fun, except I don't think Katie was too crazy about it. I put her in the sling but she didn't seem to like me bending down to pick the strawberries. Michael really liked picking out the berries and pointing which ones we should pick. He would try to pull them off and end up squeezing the juice out of them instead of pulling from the vine on the bush. Then he looked for somewhere to wipe off his hands!

The weather was perfect as it was overcast and not hot. It rained a bit on our drive there but it stopped before we got there.

And the strawberries were incredible this year! We went last year and they were not very big or very red. The ones we picked yesterday are going to be delicious, whether we eat them in a pie or fresh topped with a little whipped cream. Here are a few of the berries that we picked....don't they look juicy?

And here is Michael getting ready to pick strawberries with his new glasses on!

We are going to pick strawberries when I'm off work in a couple of weeks. I can't wait! They look delish!

Our best picking season is June- we missed last year but I'm excited for this year. So do you recommend baby in a stroller?

Yum! Michael is adorable in his glasses. I hope this pair holds up for a few days.

I want some of your homemade pie!!! Remember I almost at the whole pie when you used fresh blueberries! YUM.

Kids are adorable as always and Katie is really growing!
