Strawberry Farm

My instagram feed is pretty varied- I follow friends and companies from all over the world. Last weekend, it gave me the push to take the kids out for some fun spring activities. Now that the kids are older, it’s so much easier. But seeing that some areas are still getting snow kind of keeps it in perspective for a mama. So, with that being said, we loaded up in search of spring activities.
Things are pretty spread out in Texas, and we live North enough of Houston to still see some farm lands (or not have to drive very far to get to them). We found a locally grown farm and saw that strawberries were in season. I was a little skeptical that the kids would actually get it or understand or even enjoy it. Sure, the weather was nice and it was fun to get out and run around, but the goal was to leave with strawberries.
Ruby got it really quickly. Along with Allison, they sought out the best and more red and ripe strawberries on the row. Wyatt was a wild man. He would pick a few but was much more interested in the farm animals and running away from me.
Eli was a mix. He always is. He wanted to do what Wyatt was doing, but was also interested in the strawberries. He would gingerly reach out and pluck one from the vine. Always careful to get only the red ones. It was so sweet. All of their personalities are so different and seeing them out there learning and exploring made my heart soar.
In total we gathered enough fresh fruit to make a strawberry cheesecake from scratch. So after everyone had worn down from running and playing and picking fruit, we were on our way home to bake.
I’m not historically a good baker…like actually, I am awful. But cheesecake isn’t really baking and I wound up being successful. 🙂 So I would say this family outing was basically perfect. We plan to go back when more fruit is in season.
