A Sweet Spring Tradition


When my son was 3, I took him strawberry picking for the first time. It was a special Mommy/Son date prior to the birth of our third child.IMG_1690 The next year, we returned, but this time it was a family affair.strawberries 046strawberries 049

2009 brought us back to the same farm, this time with friends.


And 2010 found me once again at the fields pregnant, with many small children in tow.IMG_8079

This year we found ourselves returning to the farm for a somewhat spontaneous trip.  I knew I wanted to go this spring.  (it has, after all, become a tradition).  But with rain forecasted and a busy week planned, I wasn’t sure when.  We woke to cloudy skies, but no rain and so I hurried the circus crew out the door before they even finished breakfast!  We were home with our pickings before 10 am!!!


What about you?  What are some of your family traditions?


  1. Look at how they've changed. So precious.

    We do the apple/pumpkin farm every fall, and strawberries every Spring. The boys love it!

  2. Just love this post!! My mouth is watering :-) How quickly those little ones change. They do a wonderful job of picking,
