Our first time raspberry picking!

Well, again, I have fallen way behind! I have so much to post for this summer, so you may have lots of posts coming your way over the next month! #sorrynotsorry

Miss Payton loves herself some blackberries, and every single trail around us has a zillion blackberry bushes. Poor Miles is not a fan. So every time we head out on a walk, Payton gets so excited for a yummy snack along the way…while Miles is less than thrilled lol. Though he does enjoy picking the berries for Mama.

So for the first time ever, we packed up and headed to a Raspberry Farm, because raspberries are one of the few fruits that Miles actually likes! I think we have found a new summer tradition! We met up with our best friends and spent a good hour picking, eating, and sharing plenty of giggles. I’m pretty sure we all ate our weight in raspberries that day! And in case you are wondering, fresh raspberries off the vine are sooooo amazing! The kids were amazed at how much bigger and jucier they are compared to the ones you buy at the grocery store.

We ate them fresh for a couple days at home, but were heading out of town so didn’t have time to make anything yummy with them. Instead we froze them and throw handfuls of them into smoothies!

Maybe next year we will go for Strawberries too!
