Blackberry Picking

Yesterday someone told me of a secret place where I could find blackberry bushes loaded down with berries. So after dinner, I took Tara and the boys to go picking. It was great! we filled up a gallon bucket in about 45 minutes and we probably ate another quart while we were picking.

Nate wasn’t so concerned with the work though. He found a big stick and was walking around swinging it. He liked hitting the briars with it for some reason. At least he was having fun.

Zak really enjoyed picking the berries though. With his little hands he was able to get to the berries without getting hung up on the briars like me. It did take him a few times to figure out that grabbing the briars hurts.  And Nate wasn’t paying attention one time and pushed Zak into a briar.

All in all, it was a great time, although we all have quite a few scratches and cuts from the briars! I remember going blackberry picking on my grandpa’s farm with my mom. I don’t know why I remember it, but I do, and its a good memory. I hope I can give my kids some memories like that one.
