Summer is coming, and I can taste the juicy fruit already! I’m already daydreaming about making strawberry shortcake and blackberry cobbler (Pioneer Woman, anyone?). This summer, support our local farms and orchards while spending the afternoon picking your own homegrown fruit! Pack a lunch and a water bottle, and let your kiddos pick all the berries they can eat!

Tips and Tricks

  • Always call ahead before packing the kids up – farming can be affected dramatically by weather, low fruit supply, and more!
  • Wear comfortable shoes – now is not the time for flip-flops! You may be doing a lot of walking and/or navigating muddy trails.
  • Bring water to keep yourself and your kids hydrated! You can also check with the farm or orchard as they may have tables where you can bring your own picnic lunches as well!
  • Bring cash unless you have checked with the farm to ensure that they accept credit cards or other methods of payment!

Stacy grew up in Minnesota, but spent the next several years of her life traversing the globe, temporarily setting down roots anywhere and everywhere. Stacy is extremely passionate about the world of adoption and foster care, having spent a year in Uganda adopting her oldest daughter in 2008. Stacy married her husband Jesse in 2011, and they moved to Oklahoma City to grow their family. After a brief hiatus in Minnesota, Stacy and her beloved family of five returned to Oklahoma City in June of 2017. They are thrilled to be back "home" where sweet tea flows like water and they can fully embrace saying "Y'all". Stacy obtained a Master’s degree in child psychology in 2007, but currently uses it only on her own children! A stay-at-home mama since Baby #3 was born, Stacy has stayed busy keeping her children alive and relatively entertained. She loves her little crazy crew fiercely and is enjoying returning to all of their favorite local haunts. When she’s not chasing her kiddos, Stacy is likely traveling or daydreaming about traveling. She also enjoys coffee shops, copious amounts of “cop drama” shows, and perusing pinterest for ideas that have little chance of ever getting done. But they’re good to have. Just in case.
