My Blueberry Pickers

Emilia needed a cool down after picking, she's such a good sport.


Smiling and picking


Still smiling


No smile, but still picking


Just keep picking , just keep picking... Andrew was drenched with sweat! He said"Mommy I'm dripping".

Reaping their reward.
.
Blueberry season is almost over and I was not going to miss it. Yesterday was about 95degrees, and I don't want to know how much humidity. We had plans to go picking with our neighbor and her kids. The good part , no other crazy people were there and we had the whole place to ourselves. We picked over 10 pounds in a very short amount of time. That means lots of pies.
My kids are the best.

How fun is that. I'm just starting to get into the home grown veggies and fruits. I bought corn on the cob from a roadside stand, the best corn I ever had.

Yummy! We used to pick blueberries all the time as a kid -- we would freeze them and I would eat them by the handfuls-- frozen. Ah -- childhood memories =)

Gosh, could your kids be any cuter? Even on a hot and sweaty blueberry picking day? Great photos.

I've never picked blueberries before - but I bet they are super yummy right off the blueberry bush! I bet your pies will be delicious!

How fun. We always went huckleberry picking when we were little, great memories even though we hated it at the time. My Mom and Dad went this past week and there were no berries, they think a commercial outfit is coming now and picking all of them. Looks like you guys had fun. So glad you get your kids out to do that, they will remember it with fondness someday.
