Strawberries and Ice Cream

On the last day of my parents' trip we wanted to do something that none of us had ever done before and that would be fun for all of us. We decided to do go pick strawberries, something I've been wanting to do since we moved down here.
My parents and I had tons of fun, but the girls didn't like it as much as we thought they would. 

Here they are with the Strawberry Guy. He looks like just a fun character, but also stops you when you leave to make sure you haven't piled your bucket too high or taken too much of the stem off your strawberries:
They had fun at first:
Picking strawberries with the help of grandparents:
Aren't they pretty?

Lindsey wanting to eat them:

Then the fun began. The ground was a little wet with many fallen/squished strawberries. That results in the best smelling muddy ickiness ever.
Not so great for the toddlers who don't like to get messy:
Luckily Pap Pap was there to save the day:

Pretty good lot:

I guess they don't mind getting dirty if whatever they are playing in is dry. Once they get messy from wet things they freak.

She liked the strawberries so much, she saved some on her nose for later:
After picking strawberries in the sun, we were hungry for a treat. After quite a driving excursion, we finally found a cute ice cream place that is super close to our apartment. (that I didn't know existed until last week)
It was really yummy:

Cleaning off the table as it drips down her hand:

That night we had our ward talent show. The primary president is a dance teacher and choreographs way cute dances for all different ages in the show. Whitney and Tyler got to dance together and it was adorable.
Here she is with her pals:

I'm still trying to learn this camera and I don't quite know how to get it to not focus on the things closest to me, but enjoy the picks regardless:

Toe touch:
Got a little hip action in:
It was such a great visit and we were so grateful they came and had lots of fun with us. It was so much fun to explore and feel like tourists for a few days.

Soooo cute! I love their little faces!
My boys don't like getting messy either. It's pretty funny!
