The Adventure Starts Here: Strawberry Picking

Strawberry Picking

We recently took Noah to go strawberry picking at Wightman's Farm, which is located in between our apartment and our new house.  At this farm you buy a membership for the season and then you can come pick your own fruits and vegetables and get a discounted price on whatever you pick.  We are excited to come back to pick peaches and apples!  On this particular day, the sun was shining but the humidity was low.  We got there a little after 10 and were pleased to find that it wasn't crowded at all. We have driven by for the pumpkin picking and the place was a zoo, so we were relieved to find out strawberries weren't as popular ;)







Noah loves eating strawberries, and now he loves picking them as well!  I am so glad we waited until this summer to take Noah instead of rushing it and going last year when Noah was only 7 months old!  As soon as Chris showed him where the strawberries were hiding and how to pull them off the stem, he was hooked!  We had to go and get another basket to fill since Noah was having such a fun time.  I think Chris was just as or more excited as Noah and was imitating Noah's surprised gasp whenever he found another strawberry.  Noah didn't even try to eat them until I showed him that you could.  Once I did that every strawberry went in his mouth... good thing I waited to show him until the end!




















We definitely weren't able to eat all these strawberries before they went bad, but honestly it was more about the experience and watching Noah have so much fun!

  2. Oh my gosh. This is the sweetest thing. Love how excited he was when he would find a strawberry! I've been toying with the idea of taking Mason to do something like this, I hope he would do just as good as Noah!
