Strawberry Picking

This morning, we packed up the van bright and early (well, around 9 30), and we headed to Harry Stacy's Strawberry Farm in Dallas, Georgia. We also picked up Shane's stepmom, his little brother, and another friend, Kristina. It was only about 20 minutes from our house. We were some of the first customers, so we got a front row parking spot :) (parking is key when preggo, ok?)

The kids got to pick tons of fresh, ripe, juicy, and bright red strawberries. Parker insisted on holding the basket, even as it got heavier and heavier, and he demanded that Lily hand him the freshly picked strawberries so that he could place them in the basket. Good grief. It was a little chilly compared to our 80 degree weather we have been having, but it was still really fun. We got a HUGE basket of strawberries for a great price. We will definitely be visiting again. The quality of strawberries was MUCH better than the often nasty ones at the local grocery store.

Hmmm. what else? There was a large coop of free range chickens, but there were so many of them, they were quite stinky! Also, I wish I had brought enough cash to purchase some of their local honey as well.

My kids faces are currently stained a pretty red from eating a bunch of yummy berries. It was a fun end to our spring break!

Here are some Instagram shots from our little field trip:
