Berry Pickin'

My friend Sarah often invites us to do fun things. For some reason, we usually can't make it. But this week she invited us to pick raspberries. My kids get a kick out of collecting leaves in a bucket so I thought they would love this! But it was an off day. We pulled up and Ella only had one shoe on. Luckily we had an extra pair of Maxwell's Vans she could wear. There were rows and rows of beautiful berries to be picked, other kids to play with, and a fun picnic lunch. But they whined 90% of the time and wanted "Up please Mommy!" Carrying two two-year olds is not as easy as carrying two one year olds. It should have been really fun. It kind of wasn't. Oh well, maybe next time.

These shots were the ten minutes that they were happy. Big boy found a stick and started to smile. Honestly, I kind of pretended I didn't see him whacking the heck out of the poor raspberry bush because I was just happy he was out of my arms. Hopefully we'll be invited again because it was a great idea.

If you know Maxwell, you know that he's making some ridiculous sound effect right here.

Looks like somebody used my camera when I wasn't looking. Maxwell's first self portrait.
