Our annual trip to pick strawberries was during our Spring Break in March! I think this is the year when Miranda will start to remember picking strawberries. She's the age Mackenzie was when we first started making this trip. Clearly she was enjoying her time while we waited for Granny! ;)
Meredith was pretty excited as you can see from her running or skipping.
The back fields were open this year so we had walk a little bit to get there.
I had to buy a third bucket this year because apparently the girls can't share and we need a ton of strawberries! Ha!
But once we got to the field we were able to pick right away!
Mackenzie was pretty picky about her strawberries so it took her awhile to fill up her bucket.
The little girls weren't as picky. Unfortunately, the heavy rain the week before had kind of messed up quite a few of the berries, so we had skip some areas that didn't have any good strawberries.
Buckets are getting full!
I'm pretty sure Mackenzie is smelling this berry! ;)
And in no time, we were finished! I think we wound up with 6 or 7 pounds of strawberries!
Notice how Meredith and Miranda are not carrying any buckets?! It's amazing how that works out. Also, I'm not sure how I managed to take a picture while carrying two buckets full of strawberries. :)
They only had this sign out this year...
After strawberry picking we dropped off our berries at Granny and Papa's and headed to Dairy Queen for lunch! Eating a blizzard was a great dessert!
We were having such beautiful weather that we hung out outside at Granny and Papa's. The girls had fun running around the back yard.
This is what Meredith does with her hair all the time - wraps it around her ears.
Silly girls trying to walk back to back or fight back to back, not sure which.
In the beginning of our time outside, Miranda hung out inside with Papa. I don't know what they talked about, but they had some fun together. Then, she joined her sisters in running around the yard.
If only we had a yard this big that they could run around in. Of course, the fact that we only come visit every 1 or 2 months is probably why they like it...because it's different. If we had that yard they would probably never go outside. ;)
At this point, Mackenzie was pouting that we weren't going in to play with Penny. Too bad, so sad.
We didn't take a boat ride, but Granny and the little girls did sit on the boat for a little bit.
Another great year for strawberries. We made strawberry muffins and a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. And of course, the girls ate a ton of strawberries with their lunches and dinners! Can't wait for next year!
