Blueberry Picking

Melissa's play group went to the Temecula Berry Co. and picked blueberries last month.  It was such a fun outing that she wanted to go again. It's nice and close so we took the cousins there for a little outing Friday morning after we'd recovered from Disneyland on Thursday. (Still sorting those pictures - post coming soon)
This is the coolest place and the blueberries are so delicious. They are only open about 6 weeks a year.  I can't wait to take my preschool class on a field trip there next May. They have a facebook page and you can sign up on their web site to be notified when they open.
They show you which blueberries are ripe and how to pick them, and then they send you off with your bucket.  Just like in the storybook, Blueberry's for Sal by Robert McCloskey.
Luke, Dylan, and Kaylee were very serious about their blueberry picking.  Blake and Austin obsesrved from the stroller. It was a very hot morning, so we stayed just long enough to pick our blueberries and take a few pictures.  They also have a story time and other activities.
