The Berry Patch

This morning my friend Carolyn and I took the kids to the Berry Patch. It was so much fun. It is just about 30 mins away from our home, located in Missouri. Each of the kids got to pick their own blueberries. The older kids pick a few blackberries, but they were not quite ready for picking. We might go back next week to get those. The girls had a lot of fun. They didn't want to leave, but the two young boys had dirty diapers. :( You didn't have to pay to get in, but just pay for the berries. After, the kids took a 5 min ride on the barrel train. They loved the ride. Then we ate fresh blueberry muffins straight from the oven. I bought some Triple berry jam that is supper yummy and it is sugar-free! We also got some honey made in the area. Those who live in the area I would highly recommend taking your kids there. Although, you want to go as early as possible to beat the pickers and the heat!

Abby has found some blueberries ready to pick.

Brent is showing me the infested bush of caterpillars. Yuck!

Claire and Jordan were the best little workers. Claire was up there for having picked the most!

Jack would pick a berry and then throw! (not in a bucket!)

Katie loved to pick the berries, but it not too fond of the taste!

Nile and Abby picking berries.

We didn't think there was anything as big as Jordan's head, but this muffin comes pretty close!
