Blueberry Picking!

Yesterday we decided to get out of the house and go do a little blueberry picking at a farm about a half hour from our home. It was so beautiful! The berry bushes were at the base of this mountain. We went with our good friends the Nelson's and had a fabulous time!

They had six different types of blueberries and we decided that we wanted to pick from the blue crop because they were bigger and sweeter!

We all grabbed little buckets and headed into the berry bushes! Berkley was so excited!
(sidenote: she still won't let me do her hair and it was sprinkling a bit!)


If you look into Berkley's bucket you can see ONE little blueberry. She was so proud of that one little berry...we could've gone home at that point and she would have been proud as a peacock over it! I know she doesn't look that excited, but every time she looked into the camera it was to bright and she would look down again.

Emree and Carrin!

The rows of berries were pretty close together so some of the branches tried to eat our little birdie!

Kennedy had fun too!


Shalyn & I at the end of our berry picking adventure.


All our work in a flat! The most delicious blueberries and they all came to $10! What a steal!

Of course, we made some delicious blueberry cobbler and Shalyn and I got together and made some amazing blueberry jam! It was my first time making jam and she was the perfect teacher! Thanks Shalyn!
Our next trip....Apples!
