We went to the Washington farm for strawberry picking for the first time this year. The strawberries are still small but conditions are good. David fell asleep on the way there, so I took Alyssa and Vivian with me while Ann stayed in the car with David. It is amazing how good they did. Vivian learned how to pick strawberries without squeezing them (it was such a mess last year) and to tell good one from bad ones. Alyssa is very helpful to Vivian and them both had a very good time. Too bad it didn't occur to me that this can be an oppurtunity for me to enjoy a motorcycle ride until we are half way there.
