The Berries...

have found a new recruit.
Once Dave heard about our strawberry picking escapade he just had to join in. We went today in the early afternoon right before lunchtime. The girls were able to walk Dave down the rows and show him just which ones to pick and which ones to eat. They loved it. We all did.
Ava was Daddy's little helper. She pointed and made her yummy noises. Olivia was able to walk freely down the paths and pick her own strawberries. She was very proud of herself.

After we finished picking the strawberries we headed over to the sweet pea vines and picked a bag full of some rather delicious peas. Olivia was great at spotting them. She could see them before I could. Then we walked over to the blackberry bushes and filled a small box up with the plump and juicy sun ripened berries. It was awesome watching the girls have such a great time out in the fields and learning about nature. We left rather stuffed and stained and we can't wait to do it all over again.
