Today we went to the Strawberry Patch! Long sleeves. Pants, not shorts. Rubber boots. Bug spray. Mosquitoes? FIELD DAY!!!!!!
Lily walked along a little behind, tasting along the way.
The boys took turns carrying the basket & picking strawberries. And showed HUGE restraint & didn't eat ANY!
Don't they look FANTASTIC???!!! Well, they WERE! We ate about a quarter of our basket as soon as we paid. Put the basket down near the rear tire so it wouldn't get stepped on while loading 3 kids with a trip to the porta-potty & a diaper change & a screaming baby that didn't want to get in her chair. Arrive at home eager to eat some more & share with Dan when he gets home......but there are no berries to be found. Did I remember to put them in the truck after loading all the kids? NO. Were we 30 minutes away? Yes. Could I have driven over the basket? Quite possibly.
So.....I'm going to have to get my courage up to take 3 kids there again. And use ADULT mosquito spray....and a hat......and maybe a net over my head????
