Our friends invited us to go with them to a local strawberry you-pick patch. My boys have never been to a you-pick patch and they had a great time. They where well behaved and I was so glad. The older grandma gals that were running the farm where very nice and had a great sense of humor. At one point I went to talk with them about paying extra for all the strawberries that Drew was eating. Her response was, "He is so darling he can eat as many as he wants." I delt with so many grumpy people last week her response was a breath of fresh air!
Jacob did such a great job picking strawberries. He filled the box almost all by himself. I would put a couple strawberries in the box and Jacob would say, "No mom, this is my box. I want to do it myself." He did a great job. I am very proud of him.
Washington Strawberries are very small, but they are so flavorful.
I asked Will to show me his Strawberry. Isn't that such a cute picture!
Andrew was explaining to me that it was the strawberry that made all the mess. I don't think one strawberry Andrew picked made it into the box. He ate so may he had a belly ache. Poor Drew! --emily
