Then we went strawberry picking. It has been such a cool spring and summer that it wasn't until the end of June that there were strawberries available to pick! We headed out early one morning to go before school- the kids were good helpers and got to each take a basket that they picked to share with their friends at school. Our berries were pretty small, but we were told that at the far end of the patch there were better berries, but Shana and I didn't think the hike over would be worth it with the 6 kids!
As we were leaving an old man got out of his car and told me how much he enjoyed watching the kids play in the rows- he said he was 90 and his 88 year old wife was out picking that morning!
