We got there at 10, and took a short hayride to the field behind the barn. Cael and I were done picking and on our way home by 10:45, but it was still fun. He started getting cranky, as it was interfering with his morning nap, so after I had almost a full bucket of strawberries, I decided it was time to leave. It was difficult to strawberry pick, because the bushes are low to the ground, so I had to crouch on my knees and bend forward. Not an easy task when you have a 19 pound baby strapped to your chest. It's very sad, because my thighs are a little sore this morning. Just goes to show how out-of-shape I am. But since Cael was facing forward, he would reach into the bucket I had on the ground, pick out the strawberries, look at it, and then throw it on the ground. I didn't realize what he was doing at first, and couldn't figure out why there were berries all over the ground. Until I saw him do it. I thought it was so cute - the little pip!
