For The Love of Blueberries

Not much could entice us to wake up on Saturday morning at 6 am before even our loud children wake up.

But we did.

On the trail of . . .



With a mission to beat the heat and many of the other pickers, and of course, pick tons of blueberries!

We tell our kids every year there will be a prize for the kid who picks the most blueberries and a prize for the kid who makes it the longest without whining.

It worked pretty well.  We picked a family record 15 lbs of blueberries!

We ate blueberry pancakes for dinner that night, per our tradition.  I've also made tons of blueberry banana bread, healthy blueberry muffins (with flax seed), and there are plans for blueberry bars.  Mmmmmm!  We love blueberries!
