We had a wonderful weekend! Our good friend Heidi took the kids and myself blueberry picking for the first time ever. Her son is Molly's age and all three of the kids get along like siblings (a little fighting a little getting along it all works out). We picked 9.25 lbs of berries and the kids probably ate a few pounds themselves. We all got home and cooled off it was a hot day. Heidi and her son came back to our house and we had blueberry pancakes for dinner and then I got to show her how to make jam! I love getting to show people things that I love so much. We made a spiced blueberry jam and a cherry berry jam. We still have a ton of blueberries left. Many of them are going to be frozen for future use. Heidi and I are also thinking of getting out the dehydrator and drying some. Both of us have dehydrators but neither of us have used them, this might be the perfect opportunity to do so.
