There is a U-pick farm near us that I have been so excited to visit ever since moving here.
They have a wide assortment of fruit available to pick throughout the year,
and strawberries were the first to be ready.
I didn't want to miss our chance, so even though Benson was only 1 week old,
after Talmage and Wesley went to school I loaded up the crew
and braved the heat and humidity to experience the joy of strawberry picking.
Maxwell caught on so quickly to the idea of finding red ones
and it was a delight to watch him lay down on his belly in the mud to reach across the mound and wrap his chubby fist around the little berries that caught his attention!
It was worth every penny of the overpriced strawberries for that sight alone.
I'm so excited to be doing this in our own yard someday soon!
