This morning we headed blueberry picking. We headed out in absolutely perfect weather.
Notice the long pants and sweatshirts (and the photo bombers in the background)....it was chilly this morning. In fact, Mark is camping with Aunt Sue and Uncle Rick and they had temperatures in the 30's last night in the Adirondacks. (I don't believe he brought enough warm clothes with him)
Here we go, all ready to get picking.
I do believe that Kimberly kept with tradition and ate more berries than she picked.
Morning dew....we were in the fields by about 8:30 am.
Lack of sleep couldn't keep Dan from the family fun.
I believe this was the first year that Gracie picked berries like a pro...she filled her pail as fast as I filled mine....she sure is growing up.
The berries are big and juicy and delicious this year.
Way to go!
It's blueberry muffins tomorrow for breakfast.

We saw this cute idea on Pinterest this afternoon.
We cleaned up our standing room fan and painted the blades with primary colors...red, blue and yellow.
Amy did the painting for us using regular acrylic paint.
When the fan is turned on, you have an instant rainbow....cute and quick.....my kind of project.
For complete disclosure, don't turn the fan on to test the colors until all the paint is totally dry or you will find out what real "spin art" looks like.
