Strawberry Picking

(Click on photo to enlarge)

After going to the Blueberry farm last year, I have been anxiously awaiting to take the kids strawberry picking. Thankfully we had the opportunity to go 2 days before we left for Mississippi. It was very cute when we first got there we were showing them both how to pick them off the bush and put them in the bucket. They didn't even recognize that they could eat them until Daddy re introduced them to the luscious fruit (that we had just had for a snack the day before :) Then the picking was over...they both ate until they could fit no more in their swollen tummies. Kaylon would pick one, turn around and sit directly on the bush to enjoy his. And, Kolbie...she thought they tasted best straight off the bush! No picking involved for her, just the eating!

Just before the farm closed Pop and Noni (Ryan's Dad and Step-Mom) were able to join us. We filled 2 buckets, bought some of the best homemade fried fruit pies and Strawberry Peach Preserves and then enjoyed the rest of the evening in LaMarque vising before we had to leave for MS.

After eating so much on the farm, my sweet children turned in to sweet strawberries!!

We can't wait to do it again next year!
