"Don't pick the green ones!"

Thankfully I'm not talking about them picking their noses!!


Yesterday was a beautiful day so Sarah drove us out to Lane Packing Co. to pick strawberries!! It was a great day. The kids grabbed their buckets and we took off the the strawberry fields. Of course they wanted to pick everything in sight so we quickly had to make the rule: Don't pick the green ones!! Only the big red ones :-}
Hailey said she picked "20 30" (that's her own special number)Jack said he picked two! And he's probably right :-D He was just fine with Mommy picking them and dropping them in the bucket for him! Ralston did awesome! He was picking like crazy...I think he picked more than my two combinedAnd then little Riley...he was a little behind but his mommy stayed with him. I think he really enjoyed it though :-}We even saw a really cool tractor that was plowing more rows for strawberries!! He was only like six or eight rows away from us :-DWhen we were done we said lets see those berries! But we couldn't see their faces! Then when we said put your buckets down a little Jack started to put his all the way down on the ground...okay...picture time is over :-P Time to play....The playground always wins!

After lunch we played a little more and then it was time to go. But on the way out we had to do one more thing...Hailey Lynne...Ralston Douglas...

Jack Brayden...

All had a "berry" good time at Lane Packing

And both their mommy's survived the day with no major casualties :-D

looks like a very fun day. I STILL have not been able to stop there for strawberries OR peaches. =(

Looks like you all had a great day. I take my nephew to that park every time he comes to visit.

Looks like so much fun! I can tell the kids are all proud of their berries. Looks like it's really warm there too!

Your title is way better than mine.

You are good mommies to let your little ones go out and experience the world. That makes kids smart and they do better in school than those that have been at home since they were born.

Snaps to you, Stacia and Sarah!

I love picking strawberries with the kids, the strawberry farms here are open yet.

We use to live in Warner Robins. I love Lane Packing Company.
