blueberry picking

It seems like forever since I have blogged. Life gets so busy sometimes and it is sometimes hard to find the time to blogging but I still have been taking a lot of pictures-- so I think soon I may do a "summer review" post just so I have a memory of our summer so far.... (Summer is going way too fast!!!)

So I am just going to jump right back in and start blogging again---because I miss it!

This past Friday, Drew and I loaded into my car and went to pick up my mom to head to Wisconsin for some blueberry picking. This is the 3rd year in a row that we went to this beautiful blueberry farm- and I think I love it more each year we go! It is a little bit of a drive to get to Maiden Rock,WI, but it is so worth it! It is such a scenic drive on some quaint country roads, which just adds to the beauty of the day.

This year Drew and I picked 15 pounds of blueberries. (We were hoping to pick a couple more pounds this year but it was so hot that we stopped at that.  There is always next year :)










After several hours of blueberry picking, we stopped for some lunch in Red Wing at the historic St.James Hotel.

Look at that cute little rooftop patio.


Then home to freeze the berries and to do some baking.
