They were serious about finding the very best berries, dark red from top to bottom. I was disappointed after driving to the top of the hill to find that there was no one there passing out any type of container to fill. Luckily, the boys had snacked on pretzels in the car and we still had their plastic storage bags handy.
Is this a good one, mom?
Poor Dex, his little face goes bright red as soon as he gets in the sun (from heat, not sunburn).
They were entertained by the hunt and the picking until their baggies were about half full. They wandered around, enjoying their freedom, while I continued filling the bags. Isn't it sweet how Dexter's never far behind Theo? Well, on this day it was. It's not always. Ha.
After we were done picking, we drove back down the hill and parked at the store. We paid for our berries and I got the boys a small bottle of sweet apple cider. They chugged it on the porch of the store and enjoyed a cool breeze and some shade. Perfect moment in time.
The berries are small but you'll never taste one sweeter. So delicious.
