Today we took the children to our local pick your own strawberries field. We have talked about doing this every year but we have never got round to doing it, well that’s until today. The children were so excited when we told them what we was going to do. I hyped it up to a amazing treasure hunt, but instead of treasure we would be looking for strawberries. Little Birds comments were “or we could look for chocolate coins like on Peppa Pig” Bless him, he loves Peppa Pig.
We all jumped into the car and headed towards Spalding in Lincolnshire. The children kept asking us every couple of minutes “are we there yet?” They really were looking forward to it. We arrived and collected our baskets and went out in the field. The kiddies ran off and decided to see who could find the biggest strawberry. Lots of strawberries were consumed on the way round by all of us. We had a lovely time, we will definitely go again ……… probably next weekend.
We will be eating strawberries for the next few days, my favourite being Eton Mess, I stocked up on double cream today so I’m happy. The kids have plenty of ice cream in the freezer so they are happy, and hubby likes them in a fruit salad. The Bird family is Happy.
