Berry Pickin'

Josh's sister, Emily, and her adorable sidekick, Zia, came to spend the week with us!  One of our first adventures with them was to the Lyon Farms Berry Patch!  We managed to pick eight pounds of strawberries...though I think we should have weighed Eden and Zia before and after picking since they couldn't seem to keep their tiny little hands out of the buckets (or out of the patch!) 
(Kerplink, Kerplank, Kerplunk!)

Caleb earned the MVP (Most Valuable Picker!) award.  He single handedly filled up the BIG bucket and I had to practically drag him away from the field! 
Some strawberry delights!  We bought a pint of homemade strawberry ice cream from the farm and put our first batch of strawberry jelly on the stove as soon as we got home.  (We have enough for four more batches in the freezer!)
