Berry Picking!

Possibly the highlight of our summer to date! The boys had a blast picking blackberries (Jack-Jack's favorite fruit) and blueberries (Dash's favorite fruit) at a berry patch this morning.

I am amazed at how closely Dash's morning followed the plot of Blueberries for Sal minus the bear). Berries were picked, placed in a bucket, then removed and eaten. Mommy's bucket was sabotaged more than once. Tomorrow we will make a blueberry pie and attempt to make and can blackberry jam.

Jack-Jack ate at least his own body weight in blackberries, carefully selecting the blackest, juiciest ones and passing over the red ones. He's a pretty clever 17 month old when it comes to food.
