Blueberry Picking 2011

My mom and I had planned to take the kids blueberry picking and had a morning that would work all figured out. When we left home, it was sunny, yet cool, and it felt like it was going to be perfect....until we were a couple miles from the berry farm and the dark clouds rolled in. It rained on and off for a while. We had other things to do planned, so we did those first and ended with blueberry picking. Thankfully we only got rained on a little bit while picking and the rest of the time we had fun....especially the kids!

Morgan with her Oma. Look at ALL the blueberry bushes behind them...and the dark cloud!

Blake wasn't off the wagon for 5 seconds before going to work picking every berry in sight...including the green ones and reddish ones. (When I told him to only pick the blue ones, it wasn't as exciting!)

Morgan did an awesome job! She picked quite a few and kept running back to me to show me her bucket.

Eventually they got tired of it and we headed back to pay for what we picked. The kids and I ended up with 4 lbs of blueberries in probably 45 minutes of picking.

Then we had to get some pictures in the cutouts.

Morgan and Blake make some cute blueberries, don't they!?
Now I have some work freezing some berries and maybe doing some baking...Blueberry Buckle (aka: Blueberry Boy Bait) is sounding really yummy! ;-)

OMGosh what fun! My parents have about 8 trees in the yard that we pick and freeze each year. I think I need them to add in some of those cut outs for the kids ... lol :)

We did this on Memorial day. It was so much fun! What a great activity for kids, and the blueberries are so yummy too.
