Back at the end of April, Carrie and I took the kids to pick strawberries one Saturday morning. We went to the Jerry Marsh farm in Locust Fork. It was about a 40 minute drive. I really had no idea what to expect, but it was a beautiful little piece of property out in the middle of nowhere, with rows and rows of strawberries.
The kids spent about 30-45 minutes picking strawberries. It was fun watching them try to get the best ones, or the biggest ones, funniest shape, etc. Definitely worth the trip!
First thing the boys wanted to do with them was to make a strawberry milkshake. They are really into making their own milkshakes these days. They put anything and everything in them, and do it all themselves! They just find whatever they want in the pantry and fridge and go to town. It's fun. They had not done a plain strawberry milkshake yet, so they were pretty excited. We were keeping Rooney that night too, so she helped make it too! (that cup of strawberries ended up on the floor about 2 seconds after this pic was taken--ooops!)
And just because I don't have little girls that will let me play with their hair, I had to post a picture of sweet Roo who let me French braid her hair that night! We had so much fun!
