Red Berry Farm

Last week our family had the opportunity to go on holiday (as they say it in SA or vacation). We decided to go to a place we haven't been before. We headed 10 hours South to George. The kids did great traveling, even Liam after being so sick the day before. It took him a few days to get back to 100% but he still had fun.

Our first full day in George we went to the Red Berry Farm & picked yummy fresh strawberries. Our friends, Val and Danie, moved to George this past May so we spent a few days with them and they showed us around. This strawberry farm has a few rules: to go into the strawberry field each person has to have their own bucket, no eating the strawberries while in the field and you can't fill your container too full. {Haha only in South Africa}
Ok, do you know how difficult it is to explain to a 2 and 3 year old that they can't eat their strawberries yet? Rather difficult...they ended up eating two each.

After our picking fun we had a very yummy snack of fresh scones with cream, strawberry jam and coffee or tea. This was a perfect way to start our holiday.

I have problems posting, so here goes again. It's wonderful that you were able to have a holiday as a family. Always thinking/praying for you, the O'Tool's and RHI.

Love, GM
