Just before school started, we visited Bybee Farms for our annual blueberry picking family outing. We’ve gone each summer since 2009, when Avery was the age Kieron is now. It’s fun to look at our old posts and see how the boys have grown, and how their blueberry picking has evolved.

I can’t say any of them were much help this year. Don’t get me wrong, they picked plenty of blueberries, but most went in their bellies, not their buckets! Fortunately, they kept themselves occupied long enough for Daddy and I to collect a few pounds worth before Silas said it was time to go. All in all, a fun morning!

Here’s the rest of what we were up to in July:

Covid broke us down and we bought a trampoline – something I always swore I would NEVER own. To be honest, it was money well spent. It keeps the kids entertained for hours and wears them out!

Avery loves it the most

Our sweet next door neighbors gave us this squirrel feeder. Suki loves watching our visitors.

As punishment for picking on his brothers one day I made Avery copy the first few paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence. He was a good sport about it.

Blueberry Season

July means blueberries! We were excited for the season to start so we could head back to Bybee Farms to replenish our blueberry supply. We picked fifteen pounds in one afternoon. As I write this, it’s about time to head back for some more!

Good workers!

Cousin Swap 2015

It’s become a summer tradition for Avery and Nicole to swap houses for one week each summer. With only ten months between Avery and Andrew, they have a blast together. And the boys and I love having Nicole around. Here are a few pics from our visit.

We went to Bellingham one weekend. Here we are enjoying Mallard Ice Cream.

It was Pride weekend while we were there, so we stopped by the local festival. Nicole really wanted one of those rainbow tails.

Here we are blueberry picking at Bybee Farm. Nicole is a great helper!

Nicole (and I) always enjoy playing with my old dance costumes when she’s here. Kieron was up for some fun too!

Blueberry Picking

Grammy and Papa came to visit at the end of July. Here are some pics from our afternoon picking blueberries.  We picked a great day to go. The weather was perfect, and we ended up with a ton of berries!











Notice what a hard worker Kieron is!
