Strawberry Picking with Olivia

With school getting ready to close for the summer I’ve been looking for different things to do with the girls, things they’ve never done.  Laila went Strawberry picking with Darrell years ago, so I thought it was time to take Olivia on her first Strawberry adventure!

I decided to take her to Washington Farms  because it was close to home.  They have two locations,  Watkinsville  which carries blueberries and blackberries  (summer season) and also Pumpkins (fall season). We went to the Loganville location and they only carry Strawberries.

Olivia had a really great adventure, she talked the whole time! This was also a really good learning experience with her colors…Red all over means it’s ready! If it’s green you have to leave it so that it can continue to grow.  After picking, she had a nice cup of their Strawberry Ice Cream!

The strawberries were very good and we even made a nice dessert over the weekend that I found on here via Pinterest.  It’s a No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake, and it was delicious!

Hope you all enjoy our little adventure, what’s your family adventures for the summer?
