A "Berry" Good Day

I can't believe we are still having such beautiful weather. The temperature was in the sixties this morning.

We started our day going on a walk and enjoying the cool weather before breakfast. The weather was still nice, so we headed back outside after breakfast. Papaw came over and the boys had a serious basketball game going on.

Papaw and the boys.

Then, we headed to pick blackberries and figs.

The goal was to find the "monster" berries.

Papaw and Ellie made a good team.

5,000 blackberry plants and I think we checked each one.

We saw a lot of red berries. We'll have to come back soon.

Time to head home.

But, not before a quick ride on the tire swing.

Bear doesn't see what's wrong with buying our berries at the store.

After a full day outside, the kids enjoyed the air conditioned goodness of our living room and built forts. I'm sure we will be back outside soon.

It doesn't seem quite fair that I slave away at the office and the rest of the family hangs out, plays with grandpa, and picks berries.

I guess I'll settle for the consolation prize of blackberry cobbler after dinner.
