Every year, the Sanchez Family ventures to Barthel Fruit Farm in Wisconsin. This time, we headed out with them. Stephanie Sanchez (mother of 3 and also a Zooey Magazine contributor), tells us:
This farm gives you a break from the city with a genuine feel for community. As the kids (Madelynn, Noah, and Story) are getting older, they are becoming even more familiar with the farm. They always get excited to pick their berries under the heat of the summer sun and among the sound of laughter from all of the other families there. Once we finish our strawberry picking, we immediately come home and make smoothies. This year, we decided to also make strawberry muffins, which were a huge hit.
We sat outside together on our porch devouring our treats with the kids radiating happiness. This simple tradition is one I look forward to every year.
