A Berry Fun Weekend
With springtime in the air, we decided to pack up and make the hour drive to King's Orchard to pick some fresh strawberries. Busha joined in on the fun and we were so thankful to have her help! It was fun to see the different personalities coming out as we tried to get the kids to pick the strawberries to take home with us. Sophia went right for the berries but was very hesitant to give any up. She decided dining on her picks and making the biggest mess of her clothes and ours as well would be a better idea than collecting them. Noah would gladly pick the leaves and the flowers and dutifully deliver them to Busha's strawberry bin. It wasn't long until he figured out that the strawberries tasted delicious and he would nibble them straight from the vine like a little bunny rabbit. Finn would squeeze the berries in his hands, seeing if he could destroy them and watch the juice run everywhere. At one point, he was trying to see if he could pick the entire plant with his might. Cohen was our little helper and would hunt for the ripest berries, pick them and plop them straight into the bucket. When it was all said and done, I don't think there was an ounce of strawberry juice on that boy. What a joy to see just how unique they all are!
