Blueberry Picking

My cousin Kate and I were working hard on trying to check off things on the bucket list for the summer. One of the items on our list was picking blueberries. It's getting later in the season for blueberries so we decided to head out towards Holland to Bowerman's. It was perfect 'picking' weather!
 They have a small playground outside their front doors that the kids just LOVED.
 Who doesn't love sticking their face in those windows!?
 She makes a cute little blueberry if I don't say so myself!
 This is one of those moments I secretly wished I had brought my new macro lens. I still had my 85mm on my camera from a family photo session the night prior, but this is one of my top fave lenses I own. Those blueberries in the early morning were so beautiful to me, but to the kids...they were breakfast.
 Kate's an expert when it comes to blueberry pickin'. She helped show Ava which ones to pick eat.
 This is going to have be an annual thing!
 More beautiful blueberries. I'd post even more pics of these beauts, but let's get back to those cute kiddos!
 Jackie may have a mouthful of blueberries here. Who would blame her!? They were delicious!
 More please!!!
 These two ran up and down the aisle of bushes just giggling away.
 I wonder who can fit more berries in their mouth??
 Ava was getting the technique down too....
 We can't forget about Grace! We have to watch this one because she's a veteran. She already came here earlier this summer, ate blueberries galore, then they all came back up, then she ate some more.
 Hopefully she learned her lesson the first time around because she is wayyyy too cute to say 'no' to.
I hope the kids had as much fun as I did. I know Kate did! We were chatting about it all weekend. I wanted to make sure that I showed Kate how much I appreciate her tackling our bucket list this summer with us.

Jackie and Grace had sent us a really cute photo thank-you card earlier this summer for going with them to Craig's Cruisers. I loved that it sat out near my window for weeks with their smiling faces reminding me how thankful I am for my family.

I headed over to to make a similar thank-you card. It was hard to pick one out since there are so many cute options. I had to pick one with quite a few photo options because I wanted Kate to see those same smiling faces every time she walks by it.

Here's the card I sent her.....

I got this stand at an antique store in Holland. I love that every time I get an invite or announcement in the mail, that I get to display it for others to see until the next one comes.
Can't wait until apple picking soon (I'm craving a honeycrisp apple right now!!)
