My Thrill on Blueberry Hill

So, this past weekend I took Gage to visit my Mom in East Texas. During our visit, she got the big idea to take us to this little neighboring town called Edom (population 326). We went to Blueberry Hill Farms to pick fresh blueberries.

IT WAS SOOOOO MUCH FUN.







The group included: me, mom, Gage, Allen, and Mario.
Here are all the blueberries we picked, totalling $11 & some change.


We were a hot & sweaty mess by the end, but luckily---they offer fresh cold treats when you're done picking blueberries!


And....we also found THIS little guy getting a drink...

YIKES!

So...if you're looking for some inexpensive family fun next year during blueberry season---I say, check this out! We had a blast. Mom read the information about their history & peak blueberry season. I think it peaks around 4th of July.

Wow, that's just a stone's throw away from my parents - and I had no idea there was a blueberry farm! I'm emailing my mom RIGHT NOW telling her to get to doing some research for next summer!

LOL

Hey girl - here's the link to that water park you were talking about:

Looks REALLY cool, but for those prices you should come here and go to Schlitterbahn with us! I could at least get you in for half price in September!

That does sound like fun. I wonder if there's a place anywhere near me . . .
