A fun summer day picking our own!

Yesterday, we were going to have a chilled out day and not do a lot. It was much needed, because we have been busy every day for weeks. Although I will try not to moan about that because I do like to be on the go all the time!

Most of the day we did stick to that plan, but when I saw that the weather was sunny but not too hot, like it has been. I decided it would be a great day to take the children Strawberry picking. So we set off to a local farm, a 5 minute drive down the road.

Chester and Millie were super excited. Infact Millie could not contain her excitement that much that she ate more strawberries than she should of before paying. So we actually ended up paying for the rest of Millie's punnet before we had finished, just so that she could be happy and eat!

After spending lots of time picking strawberries, Chester wanted to move onto raspberries. This was fine by me so we then spent some more time picking fruit!

We had a great time at the PYO farm and came back with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and cherries. With so much fruit Chester and I decided to make a fruit crumble, I will hold my hands up and say that today has been an off day for my diet because I did end up having a little bit of the crumble with some cream (naughty me). But it was super yummy. Plus, I always find that the fruit is much more appealing if you pick it yourself so I just could not resist!
