Strawberries season is in full swing and instead of waiting until the end of season we went earlier this year. Initially we went to pick sunflowers but once Caroline saw all of the bees swarming around I cut three flowers and we went back to trade in our clippers for a bucket.
Someone was suuuuuppper excited.
We ran to the strawberry fields and started picking. It smelled like strawberries outside--seriously wish I could bottle up that smell. I was really just helping Caroline find berries to pick but she ate strawberries at a much faster rate than she was picking them. So I ended up picking lots of berries. We would find the brightest ones we could find in a row, heart shaped berries, the biggest berry, the smallest berry. I got a lot more participation when it was turned into a scavenger hunt.
And let't talk about this Florida weather. It has been perfection this week. So instead of strawberries being a melting experience it was so beautiful that we could have stayed all day. And eaten strawberries all day.
The berries are all gone now...they were so dang delicious! BUT we are enjoying the happiest sunflowers around...I could totally get used to having fresh cut sunflowers on my kitchen counter every week and picking strawberries too!
