It’s finally summer in Minnesota, and I’m always on the hunt for new, fun, educational activities for the kiddos and I to try on the weekends. This weekend we headed out to Apple Jack Orchards in Delano, MN, with my friend Jenny (who loves sushi as much as I do) and her family. Here are some pics from the day:
Strawberry season is relatively short, only a few weeks, so be sure to call or check web sites before heading out of town. At Apple Jacks, they charged by the pound. The tractor ride was $2 per kid, and the big yellow “air pillow” (for jumping) was $3 per person (it was super fun!). Also, there is a shop & deli/bakery across the street where you can get sandwiches, etc. This place was pretty quaint and didn’t feel commercial like some of the big, popular “destination farms.”
We left with a few pounds of strawberries, smiles all around, and memories to last forever. I even said to Alex on the way home, “Some day, when you are 35 like me, you’ll remember going strawberry picking… and how much fun we had.” I really hope he does.
