Now check out what adventure The Chirping Moms headed out on last week...
A few weeks ago, Julie & I packed the kids into the car & took them all strawberry picking. It was a great activity to do with the kids & I was surprised how much fun even the littlest ones had! They all loved picking & eating as many strawberries as they could. I had Alex in the Bjorn & after a while realized she was picking them out of the tray & seating them! She was covered in strawberries. Before & after picking we let the kids enjoy the farm. There were lots of animals to feed & room to run around.
For all of our local readers, the place we went is in Chester: Alstede Farms. This farm has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. They have great activities for families throughout the year. In addition to seeing & feeding all of the animals, they have extra activities on the weekends. Check out their website for hours & details.
So what did we do with all of the strawberries? Luckily both of our families love them on their own, but we did try some new recipes with them as well. This was my favorite: Fat Free Strawberry Banana Muffins!
