to a local strawberry farm.
We had a wonderful time...
We started off the trip by taking a tour of the farm
while riding in the trailer pulled by the tractor.
The children really enjoyed the ride...
The farmer explained how a frost last month
had killed many of his crops
and showed us what some of them looked like.
We also saw a few roosters, hens, and wild turkeys
on the tractor ride.
He stopped in a portion of the woods
to talk to the children about some of the wildlife
and also showed them what poison ivy looked like.
Then we arrived at our destination,
on the other side of the farm,
to start picking the strawberries.
The children couldn't wait to get started...
then go sit down and eat them.
and she was always seen
with a strawberry in her mouth!
and enjoyed sampling plenty of them, as well.
but was willing to eat, at least, one.
The younger ones were eager to show off
We were, also, able to see a couple of piglets...
when we had to tackle the piglets that got loose.
Wow... those were the days!
Also, at the farm, they had some honeycomb displayed.
we went to a friend's house
to use up some of the strawberries we picked.
I put some in the fridge
and still had quite a few left...
With those strawberries,
we made strawberry jam...
As the mamas were working in the kitchen,
the children serenaded us with songs at the piano...
For supper, we all headed out to a local pizza place...
Very yummy variety of pizza and delicious cinnamon rolls!
We've had a blustery day
with all of the wind,
but it sure has been a beautiful day!
Hope y'all enjoyed yours!
