Today the boys and I drove across the valley to the U-pick Blueberry farm near Buellton. We met up with a few other friends from church and made a short afternoon out of it. It was short because it was hot! Not sure exactly how hot... but it was 102 at our house today, so i assume around there.

Anyway, you get a bucket at the stand and head out to the field of bushes to pick away. You can eat as many blueberries as you want as you pick, so Williams bucket never stayed full. Zachary didn't mind being on the ground next to the bushes because he found plenty of berries to snack on. All in all the boys ate A LOT of blueberries today and we came home with a big bucket full too. They are really tasty blueberries!!We took a lunch break under this huge oak tree next to the field. There were picnic benches and plenty of shade for all to enjoy. We were all dripping with sweat, so it was nice to cool off. I was the only one who took my boys back for more after lunch, we didn't quite have our bucket full at that point. Everyone else took off back to the cooler temps of Santa Barbara. I guess we are pretty used to the heat the valley brings by now.
What a fun little adventure, we will definitely have to go again!


  1. How fun. I would love to do that. Your boys are getting so big. I can't wait to see you all.

  2. I can't believe the temps were so similar to AZ. Crazy!
    And how fun to pick berries. My kids love blueberries too. As do I. Mmmm just looking at those berries in your frige is making me hungry.
