Berry Pickin’

A fun filled Sunday afternoon as Mary Lou and I took the girls berry picking at Brown's Berry Patch in Waterport, NY.  Complete with a Sunday drive as this is a fair distance from our house.  I picked nearly 3 quarts of raspberries while Mary Lou picked more than 3 quarts of blueberries.  Olivia picked better than a half a quart of blueberries, and Claire…well Claire picked about a quart of mud!  For a day that was supposed to be rainy and lousy, it really turned out to be a nice day.  Shockingly enough, this pasty whiteboy even got a bit of a sunburn.  I also got a few scratches picking the raspberries, but it was well worth it.  For the most part I was reaching in and picking 4-6 berries at a time as the bushes were loaded.  After finishing up berry picking and giving a Claire a hobo bath in the bathroom sink, we all had ice cream before heading home for the day.  Suffice to say that unlike the girls, mom and dad didn't get to nap in the car and were plenty exhausted by bedtime.
