We look forward to taking our girls to the farm to pick strawberries every spring, it’s by far one of our favorite traditions and this year we got to bring along sweet little Remie Rue! It was so funny, she loved it sooooooo much, it was probably one of her favorite activities of her eight months of life so far. We really let her get into it, she was crawling around, squeezing the strawberries + completely covered in juice by the end of our time there, but – WORTH IT. I could look at these pictures of her forever.
Waverly always gets excited to go, she loves strawberries and is my child who is very competitive and takes things like this very seriously. Avalon could really care less, and honestly was just in it for the giant lollipop she got afterwards, but ended up picking more strawberries than last year — and was also super into helping Remerie pick hers as well. I know I saw this all the time, but these are EXACTLY the kinds of memories I want my kids to look back on from their childhood. It’s not always easy to make work, especially now with a baby and busy big girls and just all the craziness of life, but it’s so important to me! Also yummy strawberries afterwards are an added bonus.
