Berry Picking

We went to The Happy Berry last weekend to pick blueberries with the Moms Group I joined here. It was SO HOT but we still had a ton of fun and picked about 4 lbs of yummy blueberries. I made blueberry pancakes the next morning for breakfast, and I am going to freeze the rest to make something later. It was alot of fun despite the fact it waas SO HOT OUTSIDE. I am planning on going back later in August to pick grapes!! It is a huge farm and they have all kinds of berries and grapes.
PS- The picture above is my favorite of Mike and Noah walking back through the fields after our picking adventure.
PS- I found this pic of Pooh and Piglet and it reminded me of the one of Noah and Mike!!

We discovered a new Childrens Museum about an hour away from here in Rutherfordton, NC called KidSenses.From the website KidSenses, it looked big and cool. It was cool, but it wasn't all that big. Noah ran from exhibit to exhibit all in the first hour. Then continues to go back and forth between the Shadow Room, the Magnets, Bubble-ology and the stage. On the way there we talked about getting an annual pass, but after the visit, we decided if we wanted to go again, we would just pay the admission price of $5 a head. They did have a good rate on the birthday parties ($95 for up to 20 kids) but I can;t imagine toting 20 kids an hour away for a birthday party or asking their folks to drive them. Anyway, it was a fun day and here are some pictures of our day. On the way home we decided to take a detour and drive towards Asheville to see if we could find Mike's Grandma's old farm. We are not 100% sure we found it, but what we did find was our next vacation destination- Lake Lure, NC. It was cool...we are already looking into booking a cabin on the lake for next summer. Take a look Lake Lure
