Golden Strawberries

Have you ever had an experience when while doing the activity you think "hey, this is a lot of fun" then you get the bill and you think "are you kidding me?" This was one of those days. We went strawberry picking at a college agriculture department. We had a great time.

Cooper ate more strawberries then anyone yet his basket was always empty.
Did you know that strawberries can temporarily dye skin tone. Cooper's hands stayed red for two days.

This was our harvest. Pretty good huh. Then the bill came. $30 for pick your own strawberries. We did the manual labor, why on earth would the bill be more than strawberries I can buy at the store. Ridiculous. $30, the strawberries better be gold plaited or something. What are they smoking?

All in all we had a great day and the boys were asleep before we made it home. That almost made it worth the $30.

  1. How funny! I was strawberry picking this last weekend too....And a little surprised at the bill although yours seems a little high....I picked 6 lbs for $12. But I love that we both had the same idea-next up...ollalaberry:)
