MBS: Blueberries

Checking out the berries.

A handful of berries.

Several families joined us Friday morning to pick blueberries. There is a local family that plants a field of blueberry bushes. When the berries are ripe, they open their home (actually, their field) to the public to pick the berries.

Seven adults, twelve children, delicious blueberries, tons of fun.

For other MBS, visit Tracey. She and her family are back from their fantastic vacation!

Nat,
What great shots! What a fun day...thanks again for letting us come along. Just tonight, I gave the husband blueberries and cream for dessert after dinner. And, while we were there I asked the daughter if picking the berries reminded her of that book- Blueberries for Sal- an old favorite of hers from Kindergarten- she had no idea what I was talking about...like Chaotic Joy it reminded me of that book, and now it makes me want to rush out and buy it for her. We had such fun...thanks for sharing that moment. Hope you are well...talk to you soon.
