This year is first year we are breaking with our tradition of strawberry picking for Father’s Day.
My husband came up with this idea years ago and every year we hold our breath that the strawberries will be ready for Father’s Day picking.
Some years, it doesn’t get hot enough and there might be only one farm near us with You Pick strawberries. Another year, we waited past Father’s Day and the strawberries were picked over so it was hard to fill a basket.
And there was that one year when it was over 100 degrees in the shade but we still went!
This year, PickyKidPix‘s soccer schedule conflicts with our Father’s Day tradition but we will find another weekend to pick strawberries since our own strawberry harvest is quite meagre. I think the squirrels get most of the strawberries in our little garden.
We always pick a few extra baskets to deliver to our local firehouse too. That’s a tradition worth preserving!
We went to Russell Orchards in Boston’s North Shore most recently. It’s great coupled with a pit stop to The Clam Box for lunch. Be sure to call your order in ahead of time though because the line can be long!
Hope all the dads out there are having a great Father’s Day! Do you have a Father’s Day tradition too? Please share!
p.s. Here are two funny videos to celebrate dads!
The sequel to the Mom Song … the Dad Song is quite brief as it is making a very specific point:
The Dad Life Video is fun too!
