This morning my parents and I took MM to Washington Farms for some strawberry picking.

She loves-loves-loves strawberries and I had an inkling she was going to like picking them too.

But okay, who am I kidding?, she liked eating them a thousand times better.

We’d look over and instead of looking for berries to pick {which, coincidentally, she was *awesome* at picking and never picked an unripe strawberry} she’d be happily munching away.

This is her face when I asked her how many strawberries she had eaten–she put her finger to her lips, thought, and then said, ‘Three? Six? Seven?’

And juice was dripping down her hands, arms, face, front of her shirt.

We left with two gallons, a promise to return next week for more picking and a picnic, and one messy, sticky little girl on our hands.  {There may have been a mid-day bath given as soon as we got home.  And some Spray ‘n Wash on that shirt of hers.}

    The farm should use her as their poster child for their strawberries. What a billboard THAT would make on the interstate.

    P.S. I LOVE strawberries too. What Southern girl doesn’t?!
