Strawberry Fields Forever!

Last week we enjoyed HERE COMES THE SUN, and it only seems fitting that this week we transition to celebrate, STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER!

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.


Our field trip to Jacquemin Farms was so incredibly worthy- the kids just love to pick the fruit and nothing says Summer like delicious strawberries. I let them roam the patch and pluck the fruit from the low vines. Taking three and a half year old triplets into the strawberry fields is like having your own migrant workers on retainer. This is a fun way to spend the morning. As you can see on the sticky, red juice filled faces, the berries were perfect!






The bonus in this hair brained field trip is coming home with a huge crate of the most succulent strawberries.




Argenida had a blast too, and there is something really rewarding about sharing these experiences with her, she is a kid at heart. We can't wait to make this a weekly field trip because it is a great energy spending experience for the kids and it is a thrifty way to stock up on the freshest possible fruit. It does not get any fresher than picked this morning!

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.


Stay tuned for a Gluten Free Strawberry tartlet later today.
