Ryan took the morning off and we awoke the girlies 5 early for some blueberry picking.
Azure has been looking forward to this for days, asking each day if it's blueberry picking day yet.
The rain poured the whole way there.
We made the trek, trying to keep the peace among the troops. I have to say I wasn't very successful.
They like to "push each other's buttons", also a new favorite saying of all of them.
We arrived, only to discover our beloved blueberry farm was not open.
They all voted to go see a movie instead.
We informed them that movie theaters weren't open at 8 in the morning.
We were all disappointed to have to return home sans blueberries, but on our way home we stopped at a farmer's market for mangos, peaches, and melon.
My kids don't take a change in plans very well.
But that's a lesson that is best learned at an early age. Things rarely go as planned.
And usually our plan is not our plan at all.
We will try again, to fill our buckets full of sweet, juicy, FRESH blueberries.
But we won't let our brief hinderance keep us from enjoying the sweetness we have in our hands right now.
