Blackberry Picking!

This past Saturday our family started a new tradition. We went to a house out in the country and went blackberry picking. Everyone had their own basket except for Brayden who was happy watching us in his stroller.

I was able to make 16 pint jars of blackberry jam, freeze an entire gallon bag, and make this blackberry pie.

Looks like a fun day outside as a family. I think that it would be fun, but I don't know if there are actually any LIVE plants here in Arizona. I think that they all get fried by the sun! Ha ha ha!

You're making my mouth water! It reminds me of when I was a kid and we used to go to the mountains to pick wild huckleberries. I'm certain I put more in my tummy than in my bucket -- I just couldn't help myself because they tasted so good.
