Strawberry Season

Caught you red-handed!
(Well, I ate some too...)

Some people prefer to hold the box
while others pick.

All the kids helped.

And here's my terrific sister-in-law,
who was willing to drive us all 45 minutes to the berry farm.
(Pick-your-own strawberries are hard to find in Utah these days.)
In an hour and a half we picked about 60 pounds.
Kathleen and I each filled a 15 pound flat,
and the kids did the other 2.
They complained a bit about the sun and the dirt and all,
but they were actually pretty helpful.
Especially Benjamin.
He loves strawberries.
