we picked the most delicious strawberries at shlagel farms


we had the 60s station on pandora the whole time driving one hour to shlagel farms in waldorf, maryland, to go strawberry picking! yangkyu wasn't too familiar, but for some odd reason i knew the words to every song that came on. gotta love the oldies!

we had blast, part 2, once we got to schlagel farms - the strawberries were so red and shiny (i made a bad joke to yangkyu saying "maybe these are vampire strawberries.. they sparkle in the sun!") and absolutely delicious. we missed out strawberry picking last year, so we were stoked to get it in this year. and we hope to make it an annual thing!

after the picking, we said hello to the chickens and grabbed some vanilla milkshake {for him} and cherry slushi {for her} and listened to more 60 tunes on pandora on our way back home. 

i love days like this.

  4. This post makes me want to go to a strawberry patchm like right now. The weather where you are look pretty pleasant. It gets quite brutally hot here in Texas. I may want to keep myself indoor for the next three months and go out again in fall. What a fun day you two had.
