Washington Part 2 of 3

Washington is an agricultural state (over 60% of the population lives in Seattle) and while famous for its apples, few know what a huge berry producing state it is. Washington is often ranked first in the nation in production of red raspberries (90.0% of total U.S. production) and about fifth in strawberry production. This is berry season and our girls love them. Smoothies are very popular in our home. So Justin and I deceived to save money and have some fun by taking the girls berry picking.

Morgan loves rasberries
