Scrumptious, Succulent, Sugary Sweet;
Ripe red strawberries now we eat, eat, EAT!
I have fond childhood memories of my daddy (who’s workplace was near a farmers market) bringing home a flat of strawberries in the summer and consuming it in its entirety over the weekend. He called me his “strawberry girl”. My mother also has pictures of me picking as a two year old in a little dress and hat that she’d smocked strawberries on. Today was reminiscent of some of my sweetest childhood memories!
We joined our friends Kaitlin and Ashley for a delightful afternoon in the berry patch. Im pretty sure if they’d weighed us in and out, they would have charged us for an additional pound of strawberries.
Fresh off the vine! There is nothing like it!
Britain and Abi each filled an entire bucket.
Izzy cried as we left because it started raining before she could fill hers completely. (overachiever!)
Evie consumed no less than 50…..(and has had 3 dirty diapers tonight to prove it).
Tristan picked 13.
……..then he and Kaitlin happily proceeded to catch enough crickets to open their own bait shop and supply all the fishers on our lake.
We topped the day off with almond flavored pound cake, fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream with our friends.
Im lovin’ Summer!!
