Strawberries

We're learning lots about our new area--and my favorite thing so far is Linvilla Orchards.  It's an orchard about 15 minutes from our house that's home to like every fruit ever--and even better, it has pools which we also got a membership to. So, fruit and swimming. A match made in heaven.

Finley took picking strawberries very seriously--he made sure they were very red and that there were no bugs. And unlike last year, he didn't eat any... until he realized his brother was devouring them. (Those pictures from last year kill me, I can't believe how much bigger they are!)

Sol's schedule makes it possible to do more outings as a family--this week he's working nights, so after he woke up we headed out to pick some berries. The boys love getting to do things with their dad, and I appreciate not having to chase them/bend over to pick fruit while eight months pregnant.

It's also great to have him around so that I can be in a picture with my boys--the boys who by the end could not be stopped from eating the berries.

And look! A picture of us together! Miracle of miracles!

    1. SELFIE!!!! I think the pool will be closed when you get here... but we can go pick apples probably! Or peaches or pears. We'll see what's left.

  4. Only if you want to lose money on all your produce... you probably shouldn't let Sol help either. I'm the only reliable one.
