Blueberries for Sal

This morning the kids and i went to Hawk Hill Berry Farm here in Mebane to go blueberry picking.  After driving on the winding dirt road, past the pond and barn to get to the field, i thought, "We need to read Blueberries for Sal today!"  Connor loved picking and at one point i heard him say to himself, "Kurplink, kurplank,kurplunk."  {Makes sense if you're familiar with the book.}
Kylene would put some in her bucket and then come to me with a look of distress and say, "Mommy!  All gone!"  By her face, I thought she had maybe spilled her berries and I asked where they were?  She lifted up her shirt and said , "Here, in my tummy".  Kylene didn't come home with any of her own picked berries but she came home with a full stomach.
The kids have all kinds of plans for our blueberries:  a pie, muffins, scones.  However, the rate where going through these babies in the 10 minutes since we've been home, we'll have to make a trip back tomorrow for any blueberry culinary delights. 
I'm dreaming of my mom's blueberry muffins...

I remember that book! How fun for you to be able to pick your own fruit!!! I find that those places are harder to find...
