The first time we ever went strawberry picking, it was at Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, North Carolina.

We went during the first part of May when the strawberries were right at their peak that year!

It was a first-time experience for all of us, and we had a lot of fun.

I was pregnant…and hot…so I was glad we went in the evening – just as the sun started to go down a bit.

Even our youngest (at the time) enjoyed this outing…in his own way, of course – running up and down the rows!

(Oh my goodness, just wook how wittle my wittle, bitty baby boy was! I can’t believe it! *Cue the tears.*)

I’m not sure I remembered that the flowering part of a strawberry plant looks like this.

It was great learning new things, and we left with a gorgeous batch of strawberries…

…and some asparagus. Ha! The farm was also selling batches of asparagus, and we threw it on the grill as soon as we got home – Yum!

After dinner, we used a little antique strawberry huller to prep some strawberries to use on top of shortcake.

I mention this because this little gem came from my hubby’s grandmother’s kitchen, which made for a sweet time of remembering her.

Dinner on the grill and strawberry shortcake for dessert? Yes, please!

Carrigan Farms is a fantastic spot for families!

They offer other pick-your-own produce options, and at time there are even hayrides available.

They also have an amazing rock quarry area where you can swim! YES! It is beautiful, and now that our kids have gotten older, we’re excited to explore this area together.
