fruit picking

This is the first year we have taken the boys fruit picking and they LOVED it!!! So much that we went twice, once with Aunt D and Uncle Chuck and once with just Mommy and Daddy. We picked blueberries (by far the favorite), peaches and plums. We can not wait for apple and pumpkin picking to start!

Dylan giving the blueberries a try - YUMMMMY!

While Ethan caught up on some sleep

Caleb trying them out.

Ethan woke up just in time for plum picking

Aunt D and the boys looking for some good plums

Looks like this plum is a little sour for Dylan

Ethan was loving his!

We came home and made some really yummy blueberry tea cake - YUMMM!

Then picking with Daddy -

This time Ethan stayed up to enjoy the blueberries

And boy did he enjoy them!!

Then seeing as the boys enjoyed the plums so much, we decided to pick more

It was so much fun and what yummy things we made from those blueberries, tea cake, a blueberry pie and some delicious pancakes!
