Just Pickin'

That title is just for my good friend, Tricia Jackson!

Today was gearing up to be such a beautiful day so I decided to take the girls to the local strawberry field to pick some berries.

We went last summer and Chandler really enjoyed it. However, we found out that she does not like the taste of strawberries. :)

I know, the hat doesn't match!! That's the only one we could find!

Riley refused to wear a hat. :) I would like to think that she was regretting her decision once we got out there in the blazing sun.
Yes, they are wearing sun screen! :)

Hard at work.

Got it!

Me.
See the rows and rows and rows of green plants? All strawberry plants! :)

The fruits of our labor... actually this is only about 3/4 of it. We picked more after Chandler took the picture. It's hard to tell, but it was actually quite a large bucket... maybe 5 gallons? We picked a little over 1/2 of a bucket.

The girls had a great time. We picked a ton of berries and it only cost us $6.00!

If you live in Cleveland or come to visit this summer (hint hint) we would love to take you out and show you how much fun it can be to pick your own strawberries!
