The girls enjoyed sampling the berries along the way.
The three of them each had their own basket to fill with strawberries. And I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the girls did carrying the baskets around without dumping strawberries everywhere and actually selecting strawberries that were ripe.
I did continually remind them as we picked to only choose the ones that were bright red all over.
Here is a picture of all of three of them leaving the patch once we had filled all three baskets. We had been asked to pick at the far end of the patch behind Ryan so they got their exercise walking back and forth down the aisles (this picture was taken about half of the way back to the stand.)
