Strawberry picking

We went strawberry picking the other weekend - the earliest day in the season I could find for picking. The last several years I have missed strawberry picking season altogether because I either looked too late in the spring, or I just wasn't available due to other commitments. This year I made it a priority to go early in the season. We had a blast. Eleanor had fun on the ferry ride over playing with friends.

She also did really well listening and picking only the red berries. She mostly enjoyed carrying the basket until it got too heavy, and then eating strawberries after she realized she was allowed to do so.

We stopped and got homemade strawberry ice cream after we picked berries, which Eleanor hijacked from me.

Overall we had a great day for picking and had a great time together and with friends.

And a final picture of my two monkeys on the ferry ride home :)
