We went strawberry pickin' today and it was great. The farm is less than 5 miles from our house and they have row after row of yummy red strawberries. We met Amy, Conrad, Savanna and Cooper and picked berried until our buckets were full. The weather was beautiful and if we'd had a bigger bucket we probably would've gotten even more. After the hard work, we rewarded ourselves with home-made ice cream. Ellie was really good at picking the berries and even better at eating them. You can see by the stains on her face and shirt that she taste tested quite a few. I managed to stay clean the whole time- until we got home and I was cutting them all up to keep in the fridge. Typical!
(This is only about half of what we brought home.)
On the way home we bought shortcakes and whipped cream. I am going to eat an extra one tonight for my dad. It's something I remember him enjoying (along with Nutty Buddy ice creams). Well, I'm off to sugar up some berries for dessert. And use the SHOUT stain stick on all the clothes we wore today. There is even a red handprint on the back of E's shorts where she had to pull them up a million times.
