Strawberry fields....

This is a long post with lots of pictures, sorry but I had so much to share with you. Last Friday we joined some friends for some berry picking. When we pull up we are greeted by this sweet little face! That is a great way to start any day.

Little Miss loved picking strawberries. She ask almost everyday if we can go again. She filled up her bucket almost half full. Now we just need her to remember to only pick the red ones :)

Miss M and her beautiful smile .

Her Brother Might J

These two boys not only make each other laugh but everyone around them too. When I told Mighty J that he was good at picking strawberries he replied " I am even better at eating them"

Little Mister was not that in to picking strawberries. He was more interested in walking through the rows with Mighty J

She was so proud of all the strawberries she picked!

So sad the older Miss M escaped my camera! Next time I will have to take two or three pictures of her.
Could not wait to get these beauties home to make freezer jam for the first time ever.


YUMMY!!!! Now it's time to find some freezer jars at garage sales this summer. For now I used these inexpensive ones from the grocery store.

Had enough strawberries left for a few yummy deserts. Along with eating them everyday for breakfast and lunch. YUMMY!!!



We are looking forward to some more berry picking this summer!!!

Love all the pictures!! Your desserts look fabulous- mouthwatering! Picking strawberries is so fun for kids-they are closer to them than adults are. :)
