^ this cute bowl is nuby's easy-go suction bowl
garrison planned an afternoon to go blueberry picking at the local ski mountain, eaglecrest. it's actually across the bridge, on douglas island...meaning a bit of a drive, but so worth it! we spent a few hours picking away, taking home about 24 cups of blueberries! so naturally i'm dreaming of all the recipes i can add these to. harper hated being in the hiking pack while we picked, but loved sitting on my lap helping herself to mouthful after mouthful of fresh berries. in fact, i'm kind of worried she's now going to be a berry snob, demanding fresh-off-the-bush in her oatmeal every morning!
just in case it's blueberry season where you live too,
here are a few of my favorite blueberry recipes:

this week we met up with my hiking group to bike herbert glacier trail. it was so much fun!! biking the trail was such a good idea, since it's about a 4 mile one-way flat packed-down trail. even my road bike did pretty good (although, a mountain bike would be preferred). since i was pulling harper in the bike trailer, we had to park the bikes + hike the last fourth-mile or so to the glacier viewing area. we enjoyed our picnic lunch on this rocky beach next to the river.
*trailhead parking is mile 27 of glacier highway, just before the bridge. possible blueberry picking during july/august.
