Today we went with Grandma & Grandpa Key to their top secret huckleberry patch (we've been sworn to secrecy--if we tell you where it is, we'd have to...well, you know). We were joined by Dennis & Gloria, long-time, secret-huckleberry-patch-worthy, family friends.
Evan did really well. He didn't actually do any picking, but he spent about 2 1/2 hours on daddy's back. As we finished up lunch, it started drizzling, and Evan started looking sleepy. So Grandma Key and mommy stayed behind in the truck (hoping to get Evan to go to sleep...the nap tease that he is never did) while daddy and Grandpa kept picking berries. By late afternoon, our family managed to pick about 2 gallons between us all. Not bad for a day's work.
Here are some pictures of today's adventures.
