Blueberry Picking

A couple of summers ago we discovered the community gem that is Linvilla Orchards and Farm just 20 minutes or so away from us. They have fruit picking all summer long, and last year we decided to pick blueberries. This year we did blueberries too, but the strawberries people were picking looked so yummy we'll have to definitely go back.
Daniel started out just grazing off of the ground.
Which made him filthy!
Katrina did an excellent job picking and filled almost an entire pound box. A few green ones sneaked in, but mostly she picked the purples.
Adam and I picked the higher parts.
Daniel did a really good job picking the green blueberries, and occasionally eating sticks when his dad pointed the camera at him.
We finished off the morning with a trip to see the farm animals, which include deer, strangely enough! Then we got some lollipops and muffin mix to make blueberry muffins. We also have plans for blueberry cheesecake ice cream, yum!
I took Daniel around in the back carrier, which is always so much easier but pretty hot, and definitely rough going uphill!

We just love going to Linvilla, and this year we didn't even spend any time in their huge playground. We'll be back soon, we hope!
