So, I decided to take them somewhere they could focus all that energy on something useful.
STRAWBERRIES, YA'll! My kids LOVE strawberries so I just knew they'd love it.
Once our bucket was full she ran to help fill all the other buckets our friends had. She LOVED it.
And no sense waiting to get home to eat these things. Danny was digging in!
The kids were COVERED in strawberry juices. It was perfect.
I do seriously mean COVERED. Juices on her forehead, her hair, her ears...Danny had it on his ankles, his toes...everywhere. No worries, OxyClean got those stains riiiiight out.
She would pick one off the vine and eat it. How our bucket even got full is amazing.
At one point Danny just ate an entire strawberry. Green part and all. Didn't even care. As soon as it was in his belly he went and grabbed another one from the bucket.
When we got home I washed all the strawberries and put them in my pretty Pioneer Woman bowl.
I kid you not, these strawberries lasted not even two days. My kids were strawberry monsters!
Guess we will just HAVE to go back to the fields and get some more! ;)
