Fruits of our labour

And an easy labour it was too!

We took a very brief weekend away and headed up to the sunshine coast. 
No better way to break up the drive then to stop and pick 
ourselves a few kilo's of strawberries.

It's been a few years since we've experienced strawberry picking 
(this was one of the first things we did with other homeschoolers) 
and this was C's first time, he was very excited. 
Off they sped, baskets in hand, running like the wind.

Little C was quite surprised how tricky they were to pull from the plant, 
let's just say a few didn't survive his efforts, 
but he worked out the technique required in no time at all.

All of us had never seen strawberries so large. 
Very surprising, we could easily cut them into quarters and 
till have a nice piece to enjoy.

And there's nothing like a bit of frolicking fun after a spot of strawberry picking.

If you are passing through the sunny coast then I definitely 
recommend a stop off to stretch the legs, tantalise the tastebuds and fill the tummy.

How fun. Strawberry picking is still on my "to do" list.
