Strawberries at Sauvie's

Some friends come and go and some will be here to stay for life. I'm ecstatic that I'm still great friends with a girl I met on my first day at Clackamas High School and even happier that our hangouts have become more regular lately!

I'm a huge fan of live music, fruit picking and time spent with my great friends Tanna Williamson, her husband Greg, her dad Jason and their friend Kristina! We all have to plan well in advance to get together so we had our trip to Kruger's Farm Market on the books for a few weeks. Thursday nights in the summer are their Farm Tunes Concert Series where you can take a picnic or get food on-site from local vendors and enjoy music, sunshine (if you're lucky), and pick from their fields of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and more!

With all of us picking, we came away with guilty stained fingers and lips and enough berries for Tanna to make 10 jars of jam, 4 jars of strawberries in syrup, crepes, and chocolate covered strawberries... still with leftovers! My two pints  were enjoyed in protein shakes, cereal, fro-yo and all by themselves. They were some of the greatest strawberries I've ever had, and I didn't mind the fact that I was able to sample before buying either ;)

Tanna and Greg are expecting their first child (Olive _?_ Williamson) on October 29th and her pregnancy has been exciting to follow. They will be great parents as they also have two four legged children, Kain and Lola, who can't wait for their sister to arrive. :)

When do we get to pick berries together? Can we somehow make it a competition? ! I seem to thrive under pressure.

I've never picked berries!!! Sounds like a blast. I'll have to check that out one day!

Love to hear stories like this. Especially sharing with long-time friends. I've known my best friend since 8th grade and still live within 5 miles of each other!
