Before we left Jersey for our little vacay to Cali we went to the Johnson’s farm for a little tradition we started last year. We picked strawberries!!!! Strawberries came in early this year, mid May. We enjoyed a nice ride on the hayride and of we went into the sea of green to hunt or super red strawberries.
Just like last year, little lady and little man both tried to eat the berries as soon as they found them. We had to watch them close but little man took the first bite into one when we weren’t looking. His shirt told on him and so did the pink line running down his lip.
The kids had so much fun running up and down the fields of berries It was really a great family moment to remember this year. We ended our day with 3 crates of berries and one lonesome radish. The kids were curious to see how we take veggies from under the dirt.
The next day we created this super yummy strawberry smoothie. It was really all by accident. The hubs had put the strawberries in a little sugar to top our ice creams later during the week but it turns out that I had a better plan for them.
With just as little as 4 ingredients the kids and I enjoyed a semi-healthy treat. I was so happy about how delicious our smoothies turned out! They were a total hit with the kids.
Perhaps this will be an add on to our tradition.
Have you gone berry picking yet? Does your family have any spring time traditions?
