We live 35 minutes away from Martin's Hillside Orchard. I woke the kiddos up super early and we made it to the patch a few minutes after it opened. I was watching the radar on my phone as I was driving....not recommended...and there was a storm moving in from the East right towards the orchard. Our knew our time would be limited so we had to pick fast. When we first arrived there were a few families already picking....8:45am hit....the orchard was now filled with people and it started pouring! We ran to our car to get our umbrellas so we could get to the barn to pay.
All in all my kiddos did an awesome job picking! Weston just enjoyed having me hand him strawberries and put them his bucket. The 3 older kids did a great job knowing what to pick this year. We ended up with 18 lbs over all!
I had to snap quick...because we were in a hurry....
|Thank goodness for a helper!|

|It turned out OK. It didn't set as it was supposed to, but the kids LOVE it.|
2010-- Weston is in my tummy!
