strawberries

galore type of a day
started off at the Downtown Market Strawberry Extravaganza
with friends
and boy did Arie and the kids have fun chasing each, crafting, snacking and being silly





then after a nap
it was off to pick strawberries with grandma
trying them out
he was so good at eating them :) 


helping grandma pick :) 

and the mama


 they were not the greatest berries this year
we managed to pick 4 qts each
maybe too late in the season or top late in the day
but regardless
they still taste great in a PIE
my favorite and a great reason to pick 

see you next year strawberry picking
