I took the day off today after sitting at my desk for almost 2 weeks straight to take my mom and son to the strawberry fields for some picking fun.
I've never gone strawberry picking before, but have always wanted to go. There somethings about eating strawberries that you hand picked yourself, they almost take better.
For the occasion I decided to put on a dress with some leggings which now I know wasn't the best idea because I kept on stepping on my dress as I got up to go to the next area.
When we got there I didn't think Toddler would be interested in picking strawberries. It looked a little boring for a 2 year old to really have fun. I actually regretted not taking my kindle to entertain him while my mom and I worked. To my surprise Toddler helped us pick the 'strawbabies', as he like to call them, but he also spent a lot of time bitting off the tops of them and then throwing the rest away. That's how he chooses to eat them and always has.
We loaded up 2 crates full of strawberries, bought a bumbleberry pie, had lunch and then went home to nap, but no one got to nap because Toddler now picks and chooses when he wants to nap. I still make him stay in his crib for about a 2 hour quite period. For some reason he loves his time in the crib and sang right through quite time.
hehe One of my favorite activities as a child was going strawberry picking!! I managed to even go with friends when we lived in Germany, and no matter where they come from, I agree, they are better off the vine!ReplyDelete
