As kids we were dragged around with our parents to do many things.
Grocery shopping was not so much fun...
Berry picking was great fun!
This summer we have taken the time a few times to pick strawberries and blueberries.
Although we went to a farm to pick them and paid for the berries this summer, it still brings back those old memories of going out into the woods and hunting down the sweet little berries of blue.
Mom would give us our own cans and send us in search of great wild bushes. When you look at an empty can, you think you will never fill it, but before you know it, it is full!
I would not eat many when I picked, because I really wanted to fill my bucket. My brother on the other hand, would eat most of everything he picked! He was not too worried about filling his can.
Best of all was when we got home and Mom would make a homemade blueberry pie.
Ahhhhhhh, those were the good old summer days as a kid with the biggest worry being how fast could you fill your berry can, AND how just how much pie could you eat!
I am a Putnamaniac that still loves the berry good days of summer, new and past!
