Blueberry Picking

Saturday while Deric was gone the kid and I headed to Underwood Family Farms in Somis CA. Our great friend Darlene Hoopes wanted to take us blueberry picking. Honestly it was a little strange to be picking blueberries in CA... it seems like such a New England thing to do. But the bushes were full of big sweet blueberries and we had a great time.
They had a few animals there as well... aren't they cute:
Uh... Nelson, other side buddy!

Here are the kids playing after we picked. They had a few animals to feed, as well as a sand box and a fun wooden fire truck.

Here are a few pictures of the kids picking. Nelson has the right idea. Some blueberries were spilled so he layed on the gound and just ate, and ate, and ate.

On the weekends the farm offers a free tractor ride out to the field. It was lots of fun. Thanks so much Darlene!!
