Thanks to a warm winter, strawberry season came early to our area this year! And for us, that means a trip out to Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC.
Dave and the kids picking berries
I guess Ashleigh sneakily took a picture of me picking as well! It was a cool, somewhat breezy day. But I braved the elements in my dress and heels :)
After our buckets were filled, the kids took to the playground. The pirate ship is always a favorite. Clayton is king of the world!
So is getting a push from Daddy on the swings!
And of course the grand finale, a stop by the ice cream shop for scoops of homemade ice cream! I had banana pudding - so delicious! Tastes just like banana pudding but in a waffle cone!
Now, its time to work these strawberries into some jars of jam. I'll also freeze a portion to use in smoothies. The rest, we'll just enjoy their fresh, sweet goodness!
