Strawberry Pickin'

I took the kids to Lane's Friday to pick strawberries. Some of you may remember last year John got stuck in the mud while we were strawberry picking. Well, not really stuck, but fairly covered with clay like mud. We rinsed him off there in a sink outside but he was a little traumatized. He would talk about it for months afterward. Well, when I mentioned the strawberry picking, he remembered the mud! He wanted me to carry him while we were there. I said no way! I guess the kids decided that they should wear their boots to stay away from the mud this year. No mud this time though.
Leaving with our loot!

The kids played on the playground for a while after the picking.

I'd like to have some of those fresh strawberries. Believe it or not, I've never picked strawberries off the bushes. You go, John and Ruthanne.
