Strawberries Ahead

Yesterday was last day of term in Leeds for some kids and although my eldest doesn't start until September we had a friend's eldest one over for the day to look after her. Thankfully good weather held out so we headed off to do some strawberry picking at Harewood Pick Your Own so we could make some yummy muffins for snack.

 Poppy and Erin (the oldest two) were great strawberry and raspberry spotters, even using their magnifying glass to get some close ups under the leaves.

Then started the muffin making frenzy at home
