Picking Strawberries can be fun




Well, Pear and I decided we'd go to Spooner Farms strawberry patch just a couple miles down the road this morning. I put Pear in some play clothes and figured she'd get a little dirty and would have a lot of fun. Well, we got there and the first 5 minutes were great. She helped me pick some strawberries and then things started to go downhill. She started eating the strawberries. No big deal right? Well, she decided she would pick one, take a bite out of it and go on to the next. I didn't really want a box full of half eaten strawberries so I put a stop to this action. This made what was once a fun outing of strawberry picking, a not so fun outing of strawberry picking. Pear was covered in dirt by the time we were done. I stripped her down to her diaper, headed home and she went straight into the tub. Notice the ring of dirt around her mouth in the picture? Yeah, maybe that's why she would only eat a bite and then try the next one. She probably managed to eat as much dirt as she did strawberries. Overall, it was a fun memory but next time I might wait for Daddy to come too.

What a sweet memory! Even if it didn't turn out the best, ha ha... it is cute to have that as a memory and very cute pics! :)

I just wrote a message on your facebook wondering how strawberry picking went with a toddler--now I have my answer. Are you just loving this age with all of the fun things they can start doing and more interactive?
