Aunt Suzanne and Uncle Aaron took Anna and the rest of the family with them strawberry picking this week. The farmers told them last week that this week and last week would be the best two strawberry picking weeks. For those who have never been, you essentially go to a farm and grab a bucket, fill the bucket with hand picked strawberries, then go back and pay per pound of strawberries you picked. We split a bucket full with Suzanne and Aaron, which is more than enough for some to go bad! Anna couldn't yank the strawberries off the vine herself, but she liked to help put them in the bucket. As all first time things with a little one, we got some great pictures...

We also saw our friends Julie and Dan on the way out. Their son Ethan is getting so big...check out this picture of him who is 9 months old. Anna is one of the tallest in her group of friends her age, all girls. This makes Ethan a tall little boy at 9 months!
Sounds great, right? Looking for a place to go yourself? Check out this list from the N&O for where you can pick your own strawberries. We went to Pope's Strawberries, which is on the list and near Suzanne and Aaron's house in Knightdale.
