strawberry picking.

a few days ago, eleanor and i went strawberry picking with our friends carissa and rinah. we picked some of the most beautiful and ripe strawberries i’ve had. and despite our efforts, eleanor maybe sampled every strawberry in the field by taking a bite out of it. oops!
i had big ideas of what i wanted to make with these strawberries, but somehow, one big bowl-full at a time, they’ve been disappearing from our fridge much faster than anticipated. thanks for coming with, friends! we love your company.
  1. What field do you guys pick from? This looks like Larriland, but, then again, all farms look somewhat the same.

    Awwww this is so fun and makes me so sad at the same time. My little one is allergic to strawberries =(, but there are other berry pickings to attend like raspberry or blueberry so we'll probably take advantage of that. You all are lovely =)

  63. this is just the absolute sweetest thing I have seen in a long time. I come to this blog to be inspired by a couple that seems so together and so wonderful. Its rare for me to see a family still in tact. And I used to say, for all 19 years of my life, that I never wanted children and that I would never ever ever get married because it doesnt last. But this blog has done something incredible for me. It made me realize how much I want my own little girl. And how much I want a family. So thank you.

    love cortne.

    WORK IT E!!!

  67. So this is completely random, but my daughter is just younger than yours and she's getting some Salt Waters for her birthday next month. Can you tell me what size you ordered for Eleanor? I guess I could order a few sizes and return the ones that don't fit but I thought I'd take a chance on you maybe telling me?! Thanks so much! I love your blog and your family is adorable!!!

  68. Okay, now I'm sure! You've got the most adorable daughter of whole the world! :)

  69. I've enjoyed following your blog over the past couple years. Your family is beautiful. These strawberry picking pictures are gorgeous, and they remind me of my childhood when I lived in D.C. We picked strawberries in the exact same field! I'll miss looking at your pictures over the next 18 months (I'm serving a mission in France!)…they always brighten my day. Even though I don't know you, thanks for your bright example. Au revoir.

  70. these are just about my favorite pictures that you've ever posted. i absolutely ADORE eleanor and rinah together. and you are one beautiful momma-to-be :)

  71. tRiSh

    you four make such pretty ladies!
    strawberry picking must be so fun, I'll try to find out if we could do it around here (Ghent, Belgium).

    oh and, N. you look more gorgeous every day!

  72. Wow, this looks like such a blast. Rinah and Eleanor look like such great friends :)

  73. i just got a comment on my blog about how my boyfriend and i are the grown-up version of Eleanor and Rinah! so of course i googled and it brought me to your strawberry picking post! so now i get it! because we went strawberry picking this past weekend! although, i mean lets be serious: Eleanor and Rinah are much cuter :)

  74. Can I just say that Eleanor seems to be just about the happiest and most adorable little girl on the planet?

  75. alex

    These pictures made me too happy! Eleanor looks so beautiful!

  76. Katrina
