Yesterday the kids and I escaped our coastal fog to soak in the sun on the other side of the mountains. Our playgroup met at Santa Barbara Blueberries, the local U-Pick blueberry farm. It was so awesome, I'm already planning a trip back!
Oscar was an eager little picker, but his bucket was very slow to fill. He ate most of his berries straight off the bush, and I don't blame him ... the blueberries were so warm and sweet, you could almost taste the sunshine.
After a lot of eating, the bucket slowly started to fill (much from the help of Oscar's friend, Audrey, who was more interested in filling Oscar's bucket than her own).
Ruby is such a goober, and probably ate more dirt than blueberries in the field. But she was happy, so I let her at it.
She soon developed a taste for the blueberries though, and it wasn't long before she was double-fisting them.
Chubby little hands diving into buckets of fresh blueberries ... now that's summer.
In other news, I am participating in this year's M&J Trimming Blogger's Challenge! You can see a little preview HERE. The mystery box certainly was challenging to me, but in the end I made a few fun things. You'll have to check it out next week when all the projects are revealed. I am dying to see what all the other bloggers made!
