Strawberry picking

This morning we packed up the mini van and headed out of town to a local U-pick to get our self some delicious strawberries.

I knew with two little ones that I would need some extra hands so I brought 3 (expert) pickers with me to help out.

The girls did an awesome job and picked a good portion of the berries. The boys also did a great job. Here they are just getting started.

Jaelyn was riding in a hiking book bag but it wasn't long before she wanted out to help us.

Lady J was more like quality control once she found the little red berries it wasn't long before her and her little friend Emma were eating away in the field while the rest of us worked.

It was a very fun morning. We were 2 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 kids and 2 babies. We were there for ~ 2 hours and picked 24 quarts of berries!!! Pretty productive bunch if you ask me.

Now off to the kitchen to freeze some, eat some and make jam.
