Perfect Picking

Sorry for the lack of posts. Busy-season has taken up every spare minute of my day since February. I took off yesterday morning for some family fun. (Let me preface this story by saying, earlier that morning, Ace threw up on me three times and he said that strawberries would make him feel better.)
Here's the crew with empty buckets.
Picking took serious concentration and strength.
And even more strength to carry them all.
Look HOW beautiful! See the huge one? Ace and I hunted for "monsters" and these are the ones that we picked.
We had dosed him with Benadryl right before berry picking and this was the result...
We hopped over to Kemah after berry picking for lunch at Landry's. Ace slept through lunch in our laps, covered with Jonathan's hat. It was soooo much fun. We didn't pick enough though so we'll have to go back after we've munched through this batch.

I can't believe you guys have strawberries right now...I still have to wait 4-5 months!

I'm thinking the same thing - strawberries in March?! Wow!
And I can't believe he slept through lunch. Hope he's feeling better.
