Blueberry Pickin'

Today, we headed out with Amanda and her little boy to the blueberry farm! It was so much fun! Honestly, I wasn't really sure how this would work out since I would not be bringing the stroller AND I would have TWO toddlers running around.

They did great! All 3 boys loved the freedom of going from bush to bush. They picked blueberries for a while until they all realized that they could eat them right then. We have Alex to thank for that. He would put a few in his bucket and then have a few to eat. After a bit, he quit putting them in his bucket! Too funny!

Andrew loved picking his own berries. He thought it was so cool! He would run to one place, pick a few, then call us all over to show us where the bigger ones were. Hehe!

Alex loved going in between the bushes carrying his bucket around while eating 500 more blueberries!

They did eventually get tires - and hungry (shocking, I know...). So off we went for lunch at McDonald's. It was such a fun day. I think U-Pick farms have been added to the permanent list of things to do!

Our loot from the morning: a huge box of blueberries! That giant bowl? Well, the owners offered Amanda and I the veggies for FREE!! Woot! They had so much stuffed in their freezers that they didn't have any more room. So, what did I do once the boys were down for a nap? That's right! I added some recipes to my "to-do list" for this week. Amanda and I traded some that we found and cannot wait to trying everything out :) I'll let you know how it goes!

Have you been to any farms this summer?
