Strawberry Picking

My sister and her kiddos were in town last weekend for Lucy's birthday party and extended their stay into this week. Ever since my sister had Embry 3.5 years ago, we've been talking and planning to go to Sweet Berry Farms to go strawberry picking. My parents have a lakehouse nearby in Kingsland so we had seen it many times before and took the babies to there last fall for pumpkins and fall fun. Look at how tiny my Ford was! It's about an hour from our house so we left in the morning and got there around 10am which was perfect on a Tuesday. It wasn't busy at all and despite some of the Texas flooding washing away strawberries, there was the perfect amount for a 2 year old and 3 year old. They each picked a few and ate a few and were done within 20 minutes. They jumped on a huge trampoline and fed goats, Ford loved that part! More activities are open on the weekend so I was bummed we missed out on the train ride but they had a blast. We ate lunch at the famous Bluebonnet Cafe and neither of my kids fell asleep the whole way home. I guess I haven't written much of a Ford update lately but he pretty much has stopped napping (does stay in his room and play and do quiet time) but I had to wake him up from a 2.5 hour nap after the farm! He was wiped!

If you live in Austin or surrounding areas, Sweet Berry Farm is such a fun place to go in the fall and spring!
