S is for Strawberries

S is for Strawberries.

On Saturday, we had a break from the sogginess for a few minutes, and took advantage of the almost-sun that we were seeing. We headed down the street to a local farm where we could go and pick strawberries.

After treking through the mud to the fields (why we didn't just take the tractor ride out there, I'll never understand), we chose a row and began picking.

I quickly realized that 2 year olds are not really the best at picking berries. Despite trying to explain to grab from the stem, Mini Me ended up with half a dozen very smushed berries. So, she quickly got relegated to basket duty. Mommy and Daddy picked the berries and handed them to Mini Me to put in the basket. We still had a few that got a little smushed, but not nearly as bad as those first few.

Then, after picking berries, we saw the animals at the farm. Mini me fed the cows and was a bit scared of the big turkey. It was a hit, but I don't know if we're going to get back again before the season is over. Seems that this rain pattern is going to continue for several more days at least.

Oh, and if you are wondering what we did with all of the strawberries...

Mommy made awesome strawberry lemonade. Yum! And, of course, we all ate lots of sliced strawberries.

And, of course, the pictures:
