Strawberry Picking on a Friday Afternoon

20140629-181527-65727718.jpgThe sun was shining high in the blue covered sky the day me and my lovely friend Rel decided to spend our afternoon picking strawberries. I was so excited because the last time I had done this was when I was a kid, and I couldn't wait to feel like a kid again. I don't know why I haven't done this more regularly. Things got off to a little of a rough start because we had the wrong address, but then we figured it out, and had a nice "scenic route" and beautiful drive. I love driving through the country especially on days like these. Everything is so peaceful and simple. There's no street noises like horns honking or music blaring, just the gentle breeze making the leaves in the trees rustle and the birds in the sky chirping :) The strawberry patch had a simple stand with a giant wood carved strawberry out front. It wasn't too busy, so we just had fun taking our time to pick the best strawberries, and eating the ones that were perfect! It was such a great time and I can't wait to go again. For now I'll enjoy eating all my strawberries and making my family some strawberry shortcake for dessert, YUM!

Here are some more pictures from our afternoon.
