Blueberry Lake
Last weekend Jon and I went to Blueberry Lake to pick wild blueberries. It was a gorgeous Saturday morning (which we seem to have had too few of this summer).

It was my very first time picking blueberries (or anything for that matter). Now I can appreciate why they cost about $3.99/pint in the store. Jon was a picking pro, and if it wasn't for his excellent clothing recommendation I probably would have been miserable. I returned home with several scratches and mosquito bites, but no sunburn. Two out of three isn't bad.

He also picks a lot faster than I do which is how we managed to gather 4 quarts in a mere hour and a half.

I was going to preserve jars of jam with our blueberry booty, but instead decided to freeze the majority and bake some Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins.
