A few weeks ago, we took the kiddos to Washington Farms, a local pick your own fruit farm. We've done strawberries (well, David and I have!) but never blueberries, and this was the first time we all went together.

We got there at 9 am, before it got so hot! We paid our money ($1 for the bucket, $12 for a gallon of blueberries) and hit the fields. It was a lot of fun, but the freak-out factor for me was all of the bugs & grasshoppers - they were everywhere. I got over it though, and I did enjoy finding a pretty butterfly/moth? amidst the bushes!!

After about an hour, our bucket was close to being full. My suburbanite kiddos were hot, complaining, and over it. So we gave the bucket to Dad, and he finished up the gallon. It was a lot of fun, but hard work, too. Everyone enjoyed the next day when I made a fresh blueberry pie with some of our pickings. The rest are patiently waiting in the freezer, destined to become a cobbler or two this fall & winter!!
