A couple of days ago I took Bravey to experience one of my favorite childhood memories.
Picking blueberries!
I can still hear my Papa saying, "Two for your mouth, one for your bucket, Em"
We would make blueberry cobbler, blueberry muffins, and blueberry preserves
always saving a jar to open on the first day it snowed each winter. 
How sweet it is to pass these traditions on to the next generation of little Richmond offspring.
...
Bryant's Blueberry Farm is a 35 minute drive from downtown Louisville.
We'll definitely be back in a couple of weeks when it'll be prime pickin' time!
Happy Saturday, brave ones!

We used to go blackberry picking. My Grandma always ended up with more when I went picking because I didn't like them lol. I want to take our Blueberry fruit picking. Maybe this summer.....

Being from Maine, blueberries seem to run through my veins. Other than blueberries for sal, my other favorite children's book (that my mom always used to read...so I might be a bit bias) is 'jambouree'. A fun read for berry pickin' kiddos.
