Chris has had two solid days of workshops for Webster… yesterday he was gone for 13 hours and today about 9. And let’s just say that I had my FILL of whining crabby kids yesterday so this morning I knew I needed a PLAN!
I googled “berry picking, St. Louis” and found THIS site. Within 15 minutes of finding it we were dressed and on our way!
It was a 40 minute drive (both ways!) and we only picked for about 30 minutes but it was worth it to see how excited Bailey was! Gray didn’t get it and/or had no interest and Parker just didn’t like all the bugs but Bailey LOVED it! I think this will be our last summer of always wishing we had a sitter for Grayson while we’re out having our adventures… he’s still always just a little bit too little. And let’s just mention that at 8am it was already 90 degrees! So it was HOT out there in the blazing sun!
But we made it out with 4 containers of raspberries and all for under $10! I wish we hadn’t of missed strawberry season because I would call this a very successful, whine-free, adventure! We will definitely be looking for other farms to visit this summer!
We got home, rinsed them and I gave each kid a bowl of berries and a bowl of whipped cream for dipping! The perfect late morning snack!
