One of my favorite things about summer is being able to pick fresh blackberries. I found an area covered in blackberry bushes while scouting photo locations one day. So last night when the sun started to drop down I packed the boys up and headed over for some picking. When we first arrived we were greeted by a pretty little bunny.
We found these deer tracks to inspect.
Then it was time to get down to picking business.
We didn't get as big of a haul as I was hoping. I have a feeling the local wildlife beat us to all of the big berries, but we certainly have enough for a blackberry cobbler tonight.
The boys had a lot of fun, which is the most important part. As we were leaving we looked out into the field to hundreds of fireflies blinking at us and we even got to see an owl perched on a telephone pole. Perfect summer memories!
