We are back with lots of blueberries

On Saturday we headed to Michigan to get some blueberries. We came back with 20lbs! We ate a bunch, the hubs made a blueberry pie that was delicious and then we froze the rest. Freezing them on cookie sheets so that the blueberries freeze individually works really well if you have never tried it. Here are some shots with the new camera. It worked pretty well and has great zoom. Loads better than my other camera anyways.

On the drive back to Chicago we also stopped for lunch in St. Joseph, MI

On the right in the picture picture below they are building an outdoor carousel.

And last but not least here is our Sammy dog smiling for the camera.

Hope you all are having a great week.

We went strawberry picking twice and made lots of jam. Still haven't gone blueberry picking yet! Love your pictures. Sammy is so cute!

Looks like you all are having a nice summer! I love the waterfront towns! And please do post an "after" photo once you paint the adirondack chairs! I'd love to see what you go with.
