I'm so Blue-who-who, Blue-who-who, Blue-who-who, WHO...

One of my favorite summer activities?  Blueberry picking.

And yes, we've watched, Veggies Tales: Madame Blueberry, quite a few times recently...

There is a great little farm about 15 minutes from our house where they just tell what section to pick in and you are free to roam that area and pick until your heart's content. 

Kinda perfect for my kids.  No strict rules about staying in rows all vying for the same "biggest" piece of fruit.

In 30-40 minutes, we picked 5lbs or about four quart boxes.  The boys were really good pickers this year!  So thankful for my big boy helpers!

Sadie, on the other hand, sat patiently waiting for us to drop a few in her box from time to time.  Not that I mind...she showed no discretion when picking and ate a nice batch of green ones picked all by her own sweet self. 

Isaac was totally into picking this year...must be that he's almost six years old.  So grown up! 

I think today's outing calls for reading time...Blueberries for Sal and Jamberry...two of our favorite books!
