The only trouble with taking the girls along is the fact that they eat them and spill them as fast as I can pick them. But they look adorable doing it, and they have fun, so it is totally worth it!
Princess Ella loves to go along for the adventure, and she is quite an excellent blueberry picker. However, I don't think a blueberry has ever crossed her lips. She THINKS she doesn't like them, therefore she won't try them.
Kate usually picks and eats for a while, but isn't all that interested in dragging a bucket around. She prefers to play with the dog Jake. He's little, and she follows him around trying to play.
Sarah, my little fruitarian, is the main reason that I have been so busy picking and freezing blueberries these last few days. I think she would live on fruit, but blueberries are one of her most favorites thus far!
Many friends have asked, "MB, what are you doing with all those blueberries?" Three times now I have gone over and completely filled a sand bucket full of the sweet, delicious things. Two of those times I had the girls along, so I didn't make it home with all the pickings. But all the blueberries that actually make it home with me are going into the freezer to make blueberry popsicles.... not really popsicles, I just freeze the berries on a cookie sheet and then bag them up to eat frozen later. I'm trying to stock up since these girls love them so much.
