Back to Photo-a-Day Home
Fun day today!  The highlight was an early evening trip to the forest with the kids to pluck blueberries.  The blueberries grow on low
bushes here, but if you find the right place, they're everywhere.  Audrey and Chester and I went to forest and plucked some berries,
thoroughly turning our fingers purple in the process. When we brought them home, Laura turned them into yummy yummy blueberry
crepes with lemon sauce (sooooooooo good - recipe below, along with the rest of the pics).  Earlier today, the kids decided they
wanted to play Halloween, so they dressed up in some costumes and went trick or treating to where I was hanging out in the
playhouse.  It was fun!
