Fresh Strawberries

There are so many neat things to do in north GA, and we have just really been able to start enjoying them with the kids' ages.  One of the things we heard about was a strawberry farm where you are given a bucket to pick your own.  I thought that this would be a great place to take photographs of the children.  However, it was not the ideal place or situation because they would squish the strawberries as they picked them!  It was mostly on accident, at least I think, but their clothes and hands were covered in red!  So it was not quite the photo op that I had hoped it to be, but the children really did have a good time.  David was able to go with us, and he did most of the photographing.  Samuel and Emma walked up separate aisles, but then eventually shared one aisle together.  After we picked the strawberries and paid for them, they sat down to enjoy some of their spoils.  We stopped by the grocery store on the way home to buy vanilla ice cream so that David could make strawberry milkshakes (due to juicy, squashed strawberries it was the perfect combination!).  They were delicious!  We even made them for my family in Irwinton when we to visited them the following day.  David and I are enjoying watching our kids learn and explore new things.  Picking strawberries was so simple and cheap, but I think that the experience was well worth anything that money could buy!  The pictures below are the kids picking strawberries and our stop at the grocery store.
