Last week, we ventured down to a local blueberry patch.

The sun was already hot at 7 am but we were troopers.

We spent about 2 hours picking the juiciest berries we could find.

Emersyn was a tad grumpy and Barrett lost interest pretty quickly.

Although tromping up and down the rows of blueberry bushes in his sister’s boots seemed to keep him occupied.

We ended up with over 2 gallons of fresh picked blueberries.

When we got home, we followed the advice from fellow berry-pickers and laid the berries out to ripen overnight.

Barrett probably ate 100 berries while they were laying out!

That boy loves berries!

{Although I think he got a sour one!}

We had a great time and will definitely be going back.
