we took our third annual trip to the blueberry patch at the end of july. it was hot, the berries were just beginning to ripen, the girls were initially excited and then ready to leave. all pretty typical. but we managed to pick 7 pounds in under 2 hours, all with nana's help. i love our annual tradition, and i love that i can pull fresh berries from the freezer all winter long.
we didn't bring a stroller this time, as this was the first year crosby has been able to walk on her own, so we pulled the wagon along. it gave the girls a good resting spot.
harper was an excellent picker this year, managing to find some pretty big berries and keeping us entertained while we picked.
this is one of my favorite summer traditions. i remember in my younger years picking strawberries with my mom and grandma; i hope that i am filling up my girls' summer memory bucket with the good stuff.
