Strawberries Galore!

Summertime means strawberries galore in our household. Mackenzie & I can’t get enough of them. We eat them almost daily for a snack and sometimes in cereal, on pancakes in the morning or even in a smoothie for a tasty treat. With all the strawberries we eat, Mackenzie loves sporting this Classy Mommy fave – a Happy Panda Strawberry tee originally from last summer. It is a little tight now that she is a year older……. but she loves that she can also match Kyle who has a Happy Panda tee with a Soccer Ball on it!

California had a record smashing strawberry season this year and I just came across these fun tidbits that remind me of snapple facts! Share these ones with your kids:

-If you lined up all of the strawberries grown in California in one straight line, they would wrap around the entire Earth 15 times.
-Guessing game! There are about 200 seeds on the outside of each strawberry.
-California harvests over a billion pounds of strawberries annually.
-One acre of land (about the size of one football field) grows about 50,000 pounds of strawberries – that’s the same weight as 4 elephants!
