Strawberry Picking

We had the best weekend. It was 80 degrees and sunny all weekend! What could be bad on a day like that!? We packed so much family goodness into one weekend!

We started our Saturday, bright and early, at the Farmer’s Market.

This is one of our favorite things to do every Saturday. This was the first one of the season, so it was extra exciting. There are a ton of tents with local farmers, jewelers, restaurants, etc. They set up their tents surrounding Marion Square (a big park), and people just shop and eat! After we walked through, and got our produce for the week, we practiced Turner’s walking skills in the park.

Once Turner started pooping out, we headed home for lunch and a nap break. THEN, we hit the Strawberry Festival. Stewart and I LOVE going strawberry picking. We’ve done it every year for the past 8 years! This year had to be the most exciting yet!

Turner adores strawberries. He has even started saying it, “Dobee”. I can’t even explain Turner’s urgency to get his lips on those little jewels once we showed up! He was instantly attracted to the little red berries sticking out of the leaves.


It seemed like he was eating more strawberries than were in our buckets! He was covered in strawberry juice by the end of it! Thank goodness for Oxi-Clean!



We went home to pop the strawberries in the fridge, and decided to hit the beach, since we were already covered in dirt and strawberry juice!


I was glad to learn that Turner no longer wanted to EAT the sand, he just wanted to throw it. Which, honestly, was fine by me! I’ll take that over him gagging on mouth-fulls of sand!


What a great weekend. I was sad to see it go! Although, it is just the beginning of our favorite summer things! I am SO excited to experience summer with Turner as a toddler! Happy Monday, everyone!
