Blackberry Picking!

After friends told us about Elderslie Farm, we decided to check it out on Wednesday!    Are we ever glad we did!

Waiting for the "Berry Ferry" to take us to the field
(they have a beautiful little cafe and outdoor seating area where you can have breakfast!)

On our way

My cuties

When we got to the berry field, we were blown away!!!!    There were SO many beautiful berries!

Excited to get started!

The berries were ridiculously huge

Look at those!

The picking went SO fast!

How beautiful is that!?

We were instructed to eat at least three each ;)

We picked two of these pails full and were done in time to catch the next wagon back (15 minutes after we got there)

Peekaboo!

Us girls (oops!  Same shirt as a couple posts ago!)

Handsome boys
(I was impressed that we made it out without any berry stains!)

This will Definitely be at least an annual tradition for us!    Best berry picking experience EVER!
