Strawberry picking 2015....

One of my favorite family traditions has to be strawberry picking.  We've been doing this since the girls were three.  We all love it.  This year was no exception.  Saturday (June 6th, 2015) we made our annual trip out to Spencer Farms for berries.  Here are a few photos....

And just like every other year..... Addison definitely ate more than she picked.  I've learned over the years to put the girls in either old clothing or pink shirts, due to the berry juice.

Alexis also ate her share, but she was very helpful in the picking process. 

Processing the berries into jam is becoming a lot easier with two girlies who love to help.  They each helped me stir up a batch of jam, make a strawberry ice cream cake, and freeze several bowls of strawberries.

Our finished jam.  7 1/2 large jars, 2 small jars and one weird shaped jar.  Should last us most of the year!!!
