Huckleberry Picking 2012

The pickin' crew!
After we had our camp out with college friends, we drove on to our next destination - Mount Adams for our annual huckleberry picking! I love this tradition so much! The berries make delicious pies and the company... well they are the real reason we go! It is so fun getting to know Andrew's extended family.

This year the berries were harder to come by. We came home with 3 pies-worth of berries, which is a record low for us. And that is including a generous donation from Andrew's cousin, who came from out-of-state (Thanks, Maria!!). 

John had a blast with all his cousins. He is old enough now that he remembers coming in previous years, and really looks forward to it.  

Here are some pictures from our lovely trip:
