berry pickin' {2014}

Bright & early Monday morning we made our annual excursion to the blueberry farm...this is always such a happy place for me!
This year we went super early and it made SUCH a big difference! The heat and humidity in the South during Summer can be brutal, so getting to pick berries while it's still in the 70s/low 80s was AMAZING!
I love that my mom always says "YES!" to all my adventures! Thank you for always being spontaneous and going with me, Noonie!
We hit up the blackberries first and Grace was in L O V E!
Tart and Yummy!
Happy girl!
On to blueberries - my favorite!
Pick Pick Pick!
Noonie and Grace were super fast pickers! Pros!
Hudson was a serious picker. Every time he moved to a new bush, he would ask me to taste a blueberry so he would know if it was a good bush to pick from - ha! many do I have? Can I stop picking now?
Happy with all her berries!
Admiring our bounty!
One final blackberry before calling it a day..."I like the REALLY tart ones the best, mama!"
Happy little guy!
We picked a bunch of yummy berries...
...but we left a bunch that were not quite ripe yet! Hmmm...maybe we'll have to make another trip!
What a fun morning!!
We wrapped it up by eating parfaits with blackberries and granola right in the farm's gift shop - yummmmmm!! We also brought home these delicious blueberry muffins...AND the recipe - yay!!
Can't wait to do it again!
More berry pickin' {here}, {here}, and {here}. We missed 2012 - boo!

Yay for a fun day blueberry picking. We always go berry picking every summer.
I love the sweet jar that Hudson is holding.
