The girls are at that super eager "do everything myself" stage so I decided to put it to good use and try strawberry picking again this year. It was a hit and they are begging to go back! We didn't last too long, but we picked 5 lbs, not counting the pound that Lexi ate on the field straight from the patch. Zara fell and dumped her bucket of berries in a big mud puddle, but its not like they weren't already dirty. We made jam later that day and polished off the rest of the berries before dinner.
