Strawberry picking this year was definitely different from picking last year! Last year, sweet little Hayden slept in the Boba the whole time, and Leeland was so good about picking his berries and putting them right into the basket. He waited until literally seconds after I paid for the berries to dive into them last year..... This year, Hayden kind of wondered and people watched from our row where we were picking, he picked a few blades of grass and a couple leaves off the plants (oops!). And Leeland, rather than placing the berries in the basket, was shoveling them into his mouth. I was trying my hardest to keep up with his demand and fill our baskets quickly.
Definitely a yearly tradition that will stick around. The boys have a good time, and the fresh fruit is SO delicious!!
strawberry quinoa salad yesterday. Now I'm more of the line of thinking that I wish we could go back and get 1 more gallon.
