Berry-picking at Krause Berry Farm in Langley

After the trip to the zoo last weekend, we headed out to the Krause
Berry Farm in Langley the very next day for some berry-picking and
farm animal-petting fun. My sister, Dennis, kids, my mom, and family
all went. Melvin, Patricia, and kids were also there (although I
didn't quite see them in the farm as we were madly trying to fill our
basket full of blueberries). We didn't go into the raspberry patch as
there weren't as much and decided we would rather just buy more of the
blueberries from the store in the farm instead. We also purchased some
strawberries and corn, and the berry-flavored pies all looked so good.
We'll get some of those next time.

There is a fenced petting area where I saw a llama and goats, and you
can purchase feed for $2. There is a horse-carriage and rides were
offered around the farm for $2 each. We didn't go into the rides this
time.

I lined-up at the concession stand to get us some drinks as it was
very hot that day. I ordered lemonade drinks (flavors were blueberry,
strawberry, raspberry), smoothies (flavors were blueberry, strawberry,
raspberry) and ice cream cones (can you guess what flavors they had?)
We lounged in their large patio filled with picnic benches, and patio
umbrellas. The kids played in the playground, and especially got down
and dirty in the sand that encased the entire playground. We had to
leave early because we had to prepare for dinner guests at home but I
would definitely have stayed longer.

Definitely a family friendly place with lots to do from 0 to 100 years old. From berry picking to playing in the sand and playground to lounging around in their casual and relaxing porch with smoothies or pies within reach, Krause berry farm is a 'must-experience' destination.
