Blueberry Picking


Last weekend we went blueberry picking with Alexa. It was great.


If you've never been berry picking before then you are really missing out. It's like endless snack time as you fill your bucket and mouth with berries. 



At one point, Alexa's little bucket was empty, so she ran back over to the big bucket and started stealing blueberries from there. I'm pretty sure she picked a total of five berries the entire time we were there, but that didn't stop her from munching on all of the berries that we were picking. She probably ate about half a pound of blueberries while we were there.

 We filled that bucket more than 3/4 of the way up with blueberries...it only took us five days to eat them all.

We paid for 6 1/2 pounds of blueberries. Alexa ate tons and Michael and I certainly weren't shy about popping berries into our mouths as we walked along the fields.

It was a great afternoon at the Br├╝cklerhof. We look forward to going again soon.

I really wanted to get a few cute family pictures in the blueberry fields. It was so beautiful there! Alexa and Michael however, were not as cooperative as I would have hoped. We took a few pictures that came out alright, but you couldn't see the bushes in the picture so I wasn't pleased. Michael's solution was to shove part of the blueberry bush at me. It turned out to be my favorite picture!


And yes, it was roasting hot and we were all sweating like beasts by the time we left.
