Strawberry Picking and the Bellingham Bucket List

My little crew and I bellingfam-bellingham-bucket-list-logo1are enjoying our second summer in Bellingham and now that I am not pregnant and unpacking (like last summer) we are enjoying many more outings and activities. A local blog has created the Bellingham Bucket List that we are using to help choose fun activities to do as a family. This is our number 32: hit up the local u-pick farms. We tried out Barbie’s Berries  (Facebook Page here) for strawberries this week because they are a family-owned farm using sustainable farming practices that I had heard good things about. We were  not disappointed! The fields are well maintained, staff was friendly and helpful, berries were delicious and the kids had a great time eating and picking and comparing berries. Here are some pictures from our trip.

I wore Silas (10 months) on my back in the ergo for a while, but bending over with a 24 pound chunked on your back picking is no fun for you or him for too long so I resorted to letting him crawl after me while I picked and he ate dirt and berries. It worked for us. 🙂
