Strawberry Picking!



Aunt Maulbeere came over this weekend, and we went strawberry picking yesterday! Had a right good time too.



I don't think that a single one of the berries that Monkey picked went into the basket. In addition, I know that quite a few of the berries that I picked went from the basket into his mouth! Fortunately, we had checked with the farm before taking him out there, and they had a very liberal policy toward children in the strawberry patch: let them eat what they want. So it was all good.



I should have taken a picture of the tractor, because that's what Monkey's primary impression of the trip to the strawberry farm was summed up in, when he was telling his Daddy about it: the tractor. Silly Mama, it's not about the strawberries!



Next up: strawberry jam!

I absolutely love that last picture.. Monkey looks like he's in Heaven with all those delectable berries in front of him. Awesome!

All this talk of berries the last few days has had me wanting some of my own, so today I picked some up from the store. At this moment I am enjoying some strawberries with whipped cream... MMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Yum.

Yeah, I like that last picture too. And it's so typical of him and his berries! At first, he was picking his own berries, but after a while he decided that it was more efficient to come and "pick" out of my box, LOL! So he did, and I was glad that there were plenty of berries, because it didn't feel like I was picking a whole lot faster than he was eating them!

I thought that picking strawberries was way fun, and Monkey was really funny! Thanks for letting me come. :)
