Saturdays in June are a special time for my family because it’s blueberry season. And there’s nothing more satisfying than fresh blueberries, right? Think of all you can do with them! You can make Blueberry Muffins, Blueberry pancakes, Blueberry Jelly, Blueberry Syrup, etc., etc., etc. And of course, there’s nothing else like a big bowl of fresh blueberries hanging out in the kitchen where little hands and big hands alike can grab ’n go!
So Saturday mornings we head to the blueberry farm. They give us each a bucket and point us in the direction of the rows where berries can be found. And off we go! Much to my delight, the sounds of giggles take flight and happiness engulfs us, every one. The hunt for berries usually turns into a hunt for each other because we lose ourselves in the process. And before you know it we’ve collected as many berries as we can carry!
We pay the farmers and often get entangled in gardening conversations with them before we’re on our way back home. And don’t you know, the minute we reach home, somebody’s pulling out a mixing bowl for whatever our fancy is for the morning…… because we’re hungry! And that, my friends, is the perfect Saturday morning at the Flynn Household!
What do you like to do with your family on Saturday mornings when school is out and summer has begun? Do you have favorite summertime family traditions?
