Red, White and Blueberry

Today started off like any other day. The kids swam and we just hung out. Later in the day I realized that today would be perfect for blueberry picking instead of this weekend. After the baby was picked up we headed to the blueberry farm.

Macie is a SERIOUS blueberry picker. She doesn't play around. She found the bushes she wanted and then refused to move from that spot. The season is almost over so we didn't get as many as last year but we came home with 5 pounds! They really should have weighed my kids before we picked. I'm pretty sure they ate their weight in berries. The boys bucket was empty because he was picking just to eat them.

By the time we got home it was dark so I ran and picked up some sparklers for the kids to do. They of course loved it and after we were done we went for a late night swim.

Now the boy is in our bedroom with a major stomach ache watching Pirates
of the Caribbean. He felt really bad in the pool and it just kept getting worse. Children's Pepto and Sprite to the rescue. Oh and mama kisses. :-)


  1. I would love to find a place around here where we could pick blueberries. I am planning on making some blueberry cherry donuts this weekend and we love blueberry muffins and coffee cake..

  2. Sounds like a great day (minus the stomach ache - too many berries?). The 5th photo where he's sneaking a bite cracked me up. :)

  3. LOL, Poor little guy. Too many berries will do that I guess. Hope he's feeling better today. :)
