|Picking Crew 2011|
A few weeks ago, we went on our annual family huckleberry picking trip. As always, it was a lot of fun! Every year has been a different experience because of John's age. My first year going
, was right after our wedding (so if John was there he was very
small!). John was only about 3 months old
when I went the second time. Last year he was 15 months old
and this year he was a little over 2 years old. I think this year he had the most fun because he was able to play with his second cousins and knew that camping was something special.
I did alright being about 7 months pregnant. I definitely took it easy though! We had an air mattress so that helped but it was still hard to get good-quality sleep.
We came away with four "pies-worth" of berries. I was not expecting to pick that many! I guess Andrew worked really hard because I think John and I only picked about a half a pie!
I love being part of Andrew's family and this long-standing tradition. It is always a highlight of the year!
