My first Tuesday as a SAHM we went black berry picking. Oh sorry are you confused about my new acronym here on the blog? That is stay at home mom and it is all over the mommy blogs. It is still odd to now be using it to describe myself. And to be using the term “mommy blog”.
So off we headed to Cypress with a first stop at Chick fil a for breakfast. James got ketchup all over his face and shirt. Luckily he was wearing a tank top. Gotta let those skinny arms breathe.
I was packed and ready for the trip. I had a backpack full of snacks and water bottles ready to go. Hats, sunscreen and bug spray – I was on it. I was picturing Froberg Farms strawberry picking we did with Zach which is a huge production. We were there for half the day and then had lunch. That was Nadine and my plan for this day as well.
That picture basically sums up the entire farm. We turned off a farm-to-market road behind a subdivision and pulled into the grass behind the farmer’s house. I thought we might have made a wrong turn until the farmer, pictured on the website, moseyed over to welcome us. Affirmative – he moseyed.
Each boy got a plastic bucket to fill up and the boys took off across the field. As they say on the website, the vines are thorn less so even little hands can make quick work of the berries. To pick or stuff in chubby faces.
We made a pretty good haul. For 25 minutes of blackberry picking.
