Last Friday we had plans to go strawberry picking with some friends in Marble Falls. Right before we left, Andrea called to say there weren’t really any berries at the field, and did we still want to go. I think she was secretly hoping that we would say no, but my boys already had their shoes on, and I was not dealing with the aftermath of taking away their Friday adventure!
I think everything actually worked out really well. Picking your own berries usually ends up being a pretty pricey adventure for us, but when you only pick 50 it’s not really all that expensive! There was also a little animal farm and strawberry lemonade and ice cream (which I did not get to eat, thank you very much gestational diabetes!).
After the berry picking we went to Johnson Park in Marble Falls for a picnic. It was a perfect day, the boys were well behaved, and I had a wonderful visit with Andrea. This might even have gotten us a little bit prepared for picking peaches again after the baby arrives!
