Strawberry day

A few weeks ago, after lots of waiting and checking, the local farm's strawberry fields were finally ready for picking. We rounded up a friend and also took our favorite little buddy along for a morning full of farm fun, and we came home with a bucket of berries that were promptly consumed (with a few frozen for future summer smoothies). Get ready for a photo-heavy post - I just couldn't help myself with such precious models, and the lovely backdrop of shifting skies and emerald plants spotted with juicy red fruit. Oh, and a rather rusty but perfect truck. And Jess, I promise no berries were consumed by the little guy - only smooshed and smeared. Sorry about the laundry. 









The girls were really excited to have their picture taken near the goat.

Love the fancified friends on the rusty farm truck.

How Lucy really felt about the truck.

A cabbage growing in the patch. Mmm...I could eat him up!

I loved watching him explore!

These pictures are so great! You're such a skilled photographer. I think that one of the girls with the truck is a prize-winner...

Your girls and their little friend are so beautiful! What a perfect backdrop! I want a picture of Caity in a pretty dress in front of a rusty truck. :)

What a super mom. You take 4 kids to the strawberry patch and you come back with amazing pictures. I agree that the truck photo must be framed. Nice job Jess and little Mr. E is looking so cute.
