Favorite Photo Friday - "Strawberry Fields Forever"

May 31, 2012

Sarah Walking with the Box of Berries BLOG COLOR MATTE
It was hotter than blazes out there last Saturday, but we did not let that stop us from picking one of most favorite summertime fruits.

The girls did a great job searching for ripe berries.

It was the first day the fields were open, so a lot of other families had the same idea we did...

and before long, there were people picking all around us.

We barely filled one box and the girls were ready to get back into the air conditioned car....and to be honest, I was too.

It was a quick trip and we didn't pick as many berries as I had anticipated, but that's okay. The farm is only a few miles from where we live so we will go back on a day that is a little less humid.

Looks like a cool front has moved in, so we are in for a beautiful weekend.
Hope you enjoy yours!

the long road

We are going this weekend, but according to our place the season is just about done. This is our last chance! We already ate all of the strawberries from our garden at home : ) . The girls look adorable!

I love strawberry picking! Sorry it was so warm. It is difficult to pick when it is so hot. That is how it is when we go blueberry picking in July. So hot! Hopefully you can go back soon on a cooler day!

Pretty pics!

Love the vintage feel of the first one...so pretty! I wish we had a strawberry picking farm that was close, now I'm hungry for them. ;)

You always seem to be a couple days behind us with the weather and it was down right COLD here today...hope that hits AFTER the weekend because the rest of the week was beautiful:)

LOVE LOVE LOVE their dresses. I've got a few picked out on Etsy for Amelia, need her to pick - I'm no longer allowed - ARGH!

Love,love,love this series. The girl's dresses are a....dorable! And the setting...oh goodness....just so pretty. Love the haze (tried a bit of it myself this week...in PS...thanks for inspiring!).

And it looks hot. Poor Reagan's hair is proof in the last picture. I'm glad things have cooled a bit for this week-end. Same with us up here.

Enjoy your week-end, my friend.
xoxo

I love your strawbery picking photos. We've had a few berries in our garden but the birds keep getting to them before we do.

Strawberries are much later here. Looking forward to taking the girls this year!!!

Hugs,

Lovely photos! And the colors are breathtaking!

Kimberley said...

I love the colors in this set. I wish we had a strawberry field nearby. We will go up North and pick blueberries in a month or two :)

Becky said...

Oh, I am so in love with these!! Love their dresses, love the photos, love everything about them!

Oh how I love these Lisa. What a charming place & a great thing to go do with the kids. I am so yearning for these moments & there just isn't anywhere like that here.

I also wanted to say too- those 2 backlight photos of Sarah in the post announcing the class (I think it's the first & the second to last)- WOW they are beautiful. Really love them.

Have a great weekend Lisa!!

Precious. My cousin had an acre of strawberries and on their farm. So, I spent many summers picking them. That's great you live near by, because they don't taste the same at the supermarket.

Tara said...

Oh those dresses and the crates and baskets in their hands!!! I love your strawberry pictures... hot and all! I'm always in awe of how you get great pictures in full sun!

Have a great weekend Lisa! ~tara

Despite the heat, the girls looked like they had a fun time collecting their loot.

Beautiful shots as always.

BellaVida Letty said...

Great photos. Looks like such fun. The girls have the most adorable dresses.

Teri said...

Beautiful photos Lisa!!! Love the sun in them!

Ivy Shaffer said...

Finally a few minutes to say hi. Lovely photos and LOVE those dresses! I have no idea why I live in the "Garden State" if I don't get over to berry pick myself, then again Wegmans' is easier in the heat lol.

Have a great weekend. Awesome images of the girls.
