Berry Picking!

We went blueberry and blackberry picking on Friday with Stephanie and Natalie!  We've started at strawberry picking tradition, but I had never been picking for other berries before.  Blueberries are something that everyone in the house loves (except Wyatt), so they were very excited to go!  

Hudson especially enjoyed the blueberries that his sister would sneak to him while we were picking.  He shouts "Blue!  Blue!" whenever he sees a blueberry, so I didn't think he would make it through the trip without sneaking a few.

The kids filled up a bucket of blueberries and one of blackberries, and they had a lot of fun doing it.  Reese likes to look very closely for just the right fruit. Of course Wyatt gets distracted by the sticks all over the ground, but that's what boys do, right?

I found this idea for cleaning fruit on Pinterest and it worked like a charm!  I filled my sink with water and added a cup of vinegar, and then let the fruit soak for about 10-15 minutes.  The water was gross, but the fruit came out beautifully!
