Mmmmm, blackberries!

So we decided to pack up the boys last Saturday morning and go to a local farm near our house and do some blackberry picking.
When they woke up we got them dressed and threw them in the car and headed up to the doughnut store to grab some breakfast! Ethan was thrilled!
It was about a 20 minute drive, but pretty soon we pulled up to Duck Creek Blackberry Farm. Ethan was out of his car seat as soon as I turned the car off, he was so excited to pick berries!

We are going back this Saturday to pick some more. The bushes were not totally ready and the half bag of berries that we did get got eaten before we could bake with them. :) But the people that run the farm refused to let us pay for the berries we were able to pick since we didn't get a whole bucket full. But with all the sun we have had this week, the bushes are supposed to be full! We can't wait!
