Summer Bucket List: Blueberry Picking

 This weekend, we had the opportunity to do something that Mommy has always wanted to do with LittleBear...blueberry picking!!!  We found a wonderful farm outside Houston with 20 acres of chemical/pesticide free blueberries for $2 a pound!  To beat the heat, it necessitated getting up REALLY early, but thankfully we have family that is up for any adventure together, even if it costs them a little bit of sleep.  We filled up the minivan and headed out to Moorhead's Blueberry Farm for their last open Friday of the season. 

LittleBear tired of picking after about a half hour, but he was also a bit sick and had woken up early, so who knows what affect that had on him.  Still, he enjoyed eating and picking and seemed excited about it.  We stayed for about an hour and all had a good amount of blueberries in our buckets.  Overall, a great time was had by all and we even came home with lots of blueberries to freeze for later.  YUM!  Mommy definitely wants to try this again next year...we'll see if LadyBear is up for it too.

And just for fun, here's a video of LittleBear in action with the blueberry bushes:
