Today I took the children to a local strawberry patch to pick their own, fresh strawberries. Ellery has been begging me to do this for quite some time and I finally caved in. Notice Dane's fingers in some of the pictures. . . they are covered in dirt and he is shoving strawberries into his mouth as quickly as he can. The next time you buy strawberries from the store, look at the carton and see if they are from Carlsbad--you, too could come pick strawberries on your next visit. Oh--and this patch is about 5 minutes from Legoland!
