Berry Picking

Today I got to take the kids to do something that I've always wanted to try--berry picking. For years, every time we've driven up to Michigan for vacation or to visit family, I've said that we should stop at one of the many little farms to pick our own blueberries or cherries, but we've never made time. Recently, some friends recommended a place here in Indy. It's not quite as amazing as Michigan blueberries, and it's way on the other side of town (about an hour drive for us), but it was still a lot of fun and a very good excuse to see some friends from over in that area.

Here's Liam, looking very studly in baby's first pair of sunglasses (which he promptly ripped off and chewed on as soon as I was done snapping this picture):
And Shay, extremely proud of herself for picking the berries directly off the bush:
And Bryn, with her hand en route to her mouth:
(All of the kids ate far more berries than they put into their baskets. It's a good thing that the people in the shop didn't weigh the kids before and after the picking, or we would have owed them a whole lot more money.)

So even though Shay didn't seem to understand the concept that she was only supposed to pick the BLUEberries, we all had a great time!

Looks like a great time! We were there on Thursday afternoon...met friends there from that side of town. It's a haul, but worth it to see good friends and eat yummy blueberries!
