Strawberry pickin'

This past week the girls and I went strawberry picking with my grandmother. Last year, Meredith was too small, but this year she had a lot of fun!  It was cold and windy, so it was a much different experience than last year.  Because of the wind, we didn't really linger while picking the berries, but thankfully strawberry picking goes fast and we filled up our bucket very quickly.

Walking back to pay for our strawberries, Mackenzie's suburbanite nature came through when she got pretty excited about the rocks on the gravel road! ;)

Afterwards we went to lunch and then back to Granny and Papa's to make homemade ice cream with fresh strawberries.
Meredith was very interested in what was going on.

For those concerned (mainly Brandon), Papa was holding on to Meredith as she stood there on the bar stool. 

Mackenzie thought the ice cream maker was too loud!  Silly girl!
Of course the girls had to taste the strawberries before we put them in the ice cream.

And our delicious, but very sweet, homemade ice cream!

I've since made delicious strawberry bread and we've been eating a few every day.  Next year will be our last year to go during the week.  After that, I guess we'll have to deal with the crowds on a Saturday.  Of course, that would be the case with everything once Mackenzie starts school. :/

Anyways, next year we'll have another kiddo to take on our annual trip, so that will be fun!
