This pretty much sums up a great day. Perfect weather and time with the whole family and bucketS of berries. I loved hearing my kids “mom, look at this one, it’s the biggest and juciest.” They are not afraid to take their time finding just the perfect ones or pop a squat on the ground and stain their pants while enjoying the already picked buckets. But me, every time I turn into the greediest picker – can you ever pick enough? (ok I smuggled a few handfuls to eat too.)
This is actually a very big patch so you couldn’t quite tell how many people were there. Every once in a while you could hear kids in the next row over or people talking and saying the exact same things “look at this one!”. This is what I love – families out enjoying their day and doing something fun together. It makes me smile every time! When we got home I started on these individual berry crisps with *gasp* store-bought vanilla – sometimes convenience wins. But I do have a whole slue of blueberry goodness recipes to follow.
