Strawberry Picking

Yum
Do you live in the Country? If so you may have heard of Strawberry picking. If you live in the City I am sure there is somewhere around you that hosts this as well. Local farmers offer a "U-Pick" staple through their fields for a small price. It was a misty day and the weather could not make up it's mind so we decided to head out pickin'. I really try to do things with Mac as he is still young. I try to create a fun filled (yet educational) childhood. When we got their he was faced with a decision to choose a bucket or carton . . later he realized the bucket would have been a better choice.
And yes Barn boots are a must! 
We all were excited to hunt! So out we went in search of the perfect strawberries.
The fields behind him may not look like much BUT they pack some tasty treats!!
Carefully move the plant leaves aside to find treasures!
This may seem like common sense but it takes a delicate hand to find the BIG Berries. 
When in doubt let the kiddos PICK!
 
Because hunting down the big strawberries is half the fun!!
If you have not tried this out with your kids I really advice that you do.
It is so much fun and they will love it but you will too! 
Yes, even this old bat got in there and found some prized pieces!!
Now you maybe thinking well this cost money and I don't really have much.
I'm not a millionaire, I know that! 
So total cost for a day of picking strawberries?
$2.10 for these babies.
Yes $2.10 for the whole experience and fun filled day! Beat that!
You simply pay for the weight of your strawberries.
Anyone else take their children picking?
