Some friends of ours asked us if we wanted to go huckleberry picking with them. Annabelle is good friends with their son and we thought it would be a nice outing. I must confess that I have never been berry picking and I was intrigued as to where we were going and what a huckleberry looked like. We went into some woods up on a mountain and went to town picking berries. Annabelle and Jillian loved it. Jillian was constantly wanting to find and pick more berries. She loved being around the trees and of course wanted to walk by herself. By the end, she was pretty tired of someone holding her hand to help her walk around on the unsteady terrain. About halfway through, she decided to eat one of the huckleberries and that was that. She absolutely refused to put the berries in the bucket and ate every one she picked and then demanded "more". I think by the end she probably had eaten about 40 berries. Annabelle and Owen, her friend, loved talking while they picked. It was so fun to see them together. It was truly a great evening.
