This past weekend, I took the kids to try some blueberry picking at Ward's Berry Farm. We were too late for blueberries... bushes were empty when we got there, but we really lucked out anyway. When we got there, we went to the U-Pick counter and the cashier said we could pick Raspberries, peaches or grape. The girls LOVE raspberries, so we chose them. After we chose, the cashier told us, that we should we should go and pick them all. So off we went...for raspberries, peaches AND grapes! It was the first time any of us have ever pick grapes right off of the vine. What fun!

Here are a few pictures that I took of Sammy while I carried him in the sling.

Sammy had the right idea in the raspberry patch. Every time I picked a berry, he growled like a wild animal, until I gave it to him to eat. Needless to say, I had an empty basket leaving the raspberry patch.

Lily picking raspberries.

Here are the kids among the grape vines.
Check out how Sammy is reaching for Lily's basket. Just after this picture, he snatched a bunch of grapes out of the basket...and stuffed them in his mouth!

On to the peach orchard.
I love this picture. The girls look so young and sweet.

Sammy finds a peach.


It was fun day on the farm. After all of the fruit, we spent the time listening to a folk music band, and then the girls climbed up on the gigantic pile of hay bails.
