Strawberry Pickin!!!

The Cottle Strawberry field opened up this past weekend and since the hubs was still off we decided to make a trip out there. Good thing to because its suppose to rain this entire weekend and I'll be gone next weekend. Last year we went and just picked two 4oz baskets of Strawberries, this year we decided to go big with the 1lb bucket. I mean its only $11 for you to pick and fill it so you really can't go wrong. Fresh Sweet Strawberry's, can't pass that up!!!

The weather was perfect, it was in the high 70's all weekend the sun was shinning and the breeze felt great. Look at those beauties, you can smell the sweetness coming from them. I absolutely love this time of year. Springtime, strawberry fields, farmers markets, panting flowers and veggies in our backyard its perfect. The only thing I hate is I have horrible allergies, they didn't bother me at all in Hawaii. 

Couples who Pick together Sick together!!!! I seriously love this man with all my heart!!!! 

Most of the strawberries were about average size, but then you had some that were giant. They looked like they could have been 2-3 grown together. We filled out bucket up in no time and were on our way. 

 I can't wait to go back after I come home from spring break. Between the two of us eating them and me making strawberry cupcakes they are just about all gone. They don't last long in our home. 

These are the strawberry cupcakes I made, with fresh homemade cream cheese icing and a sliced strawberry garnish. They were extra yummy and had just enough sweetness up not over powering.
