Strawberry Picking

Today's post has little to do with celebrating life with a party, but more about enjoying the simple pleasures of life.  My husband and I recently took our youngest daughter Amelia strawberry picking, while our oldest daughter Ellie was with her grandparents.  It was a spur of the moment little outing that made our little 3 year old smile with delight and it only took less than $5 to make this cherished family memory happen for us. 

We are fortunate to live by serveral farms, so we drove about 15-20 minutes north down quiet roads past fields of corn and soy beans.  We continued to travel with the windows rolled down on a dusty country road past apple, cherry and peach trees, past rows of peas and raspberry bushes and toward the strawberry field.  As we got closer the sweet smell of strawberries filled the air.  Amelia happily walked through the rows of strawberries and bent down to pick the berries as the summer heat swirled around us.

So today as we head toward the midweek break with 4th of July, I just wanted to take some time to share with you some photos of a simply splendid day, enjoying the simple things in life.  Happy 4th of July!
