The Blueberry Patch

Yesterday, Christian, McKenna and I went blueberry picking with my neighbor Kay and her grandson Charlie. This was a first for us but we're going to add it to our list of things we do every year.
Christian was actually quite good at it. He only picked the large blue ones and not the "white" ones or the purple ones. We went at 8:30am (right after dropping Emma off for camp) so the weather was perfect. Christian dumped the bucket a few times and cried about it a bit too much, but other than that we had a great time!

For you locals who want to know where we went. We went to Hess Farm right off Clayhill Rd. I think blueberry picking season is pretty much over. It would have been better to go about a month ago. They also do pick-your-own cherries and berries in early summer (early June)! I can't wait 'til next year!

Judy, what a fun time. We were hoping to do the same thing with the kids this past weekend when we were at the beach. Maybe next year we can all go together. Fun! It is what being little is all about!

I love that McKenna is sitting there like the godfather watching the others work... I bet she doesn't tolerate slackers!
