Anyway, I was especially excited because this trip would include my first blackberry picking outing!
If you've never picked blackberries before, you should know the bushes have thorns and the berries leave stains!
This is where we went to pick the berries. The bushes were bordering one of Luke's sort of relatives' pear orchard.
In the thick of it all!
Bringing home the berries!
Luke and his brother Mark both got bikes! They'll both be at the U of I this year!
While I was there I got exposed to the Wii Fit! Luke and his Dad, John, are very competitive in tyring to keep the highest scores.
I got hooked on Hula Hooping!
It was a fun trip and I'm still eating the rewards! Thanks also for the blueberries Neola! I made blueberry muffins the other day!
