Pickin' Blueberries!

There are so many farms near us in Bellingham. Many of them are U-Pick with great prices. Blueberry season is in full swing here, so the boys and I went on an adventure. Of course, I instructed them to put on long dark pants and find a dark shirt to wear. They came downstairs, proudly dressed in khakis and white shirts with ties on. Although they were SO HANDSOME, we had to compromise:

Elijah was very diligent about picking. He refused to eat any of his harvest until we weighed them all. He was convinced he could pick 500 lbs, ha! Imagine his disappointment when we learned he had picked only half a pound. Lazarus, on the other hand, ate every single blueberry he picked and brought none home, ha!

It was such a nice way to spend the morning with my boys. We took home 3.5 lbs of blueberries for only $4, got to chat and snack all morning and be outside. I think we'll go it again next week, too!

  1. Pic your own is how its described here in the UK - and I well remember the disappointment at how little the tally was at the end of a picking session at your lads' ages! Hope you enjoyed the fruits of your labours, though1
