Strawberry Picking With Maddy & Poppy
Maddy & Poppy are here. Hip, hip hooray! We have been having so much fun being together this week. We went strawberry picking yesterday in between rain showers. We are very lucky to live less than a mile from a beautiful orchard that grows apples, pumpkins, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Maddy, Poppy, Grace, Jack and I enjoyed everything about our trip to the strawberry patch - our wet knees (!), the juicy red strawberries, watching Jack pick strawberries for the first time, the strawberry leg warmers that Maddy made for Grace, seeing Jack sit in the hay, the orchard's two dogs (Mona & Voscar), spoting a convertible car parked in the field, and running through the strawberry aisles!
