One of our favorite things to do as a family is to try activities that we’ve never done before. On Saturday, we decided to rent a car for the day and head out of the city to go berry picking. We love mini-road trips because they are so few and far between for us. Having a car, even for just the day, is a complete luxury and it allows us to venture outside of Manhattan.
We go apple picking as a family every fall, but we’ve never been berry picking and we are huge berry lovers in our family. The girls will eat a carton of both raspberries and blueberries daily. We have strawberries as our dessert at nearly every meal, so you can imagine our excitement when we got to the farm to see that cherries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries were all ready to be picked! Take a look at our adventure day picking berries on the farm!
