Cousins Traditional Trip to Shuqualak Farms

July 03, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last year during the Independence Day vacation, the Keck family, the Twins' cousin Amelia, and their Nonnie Loretta had a lot of fun picking fresh blueberries at the Shuqualak Farms in Frierson, Louisiana.  You can read more about last year's expedition here.  We had so much fun that not even the heat and humidity of July could keep us from picking these delicious morsels.  You might even say that this is the start of a tradition!

With the Twins and Amelia being a year older (5 years old and 3.5 years old, respectively), I think that this year was also a good bonding experience for not only the cousins who are pretty well superglued together, but also with their Nonnie Loretta.

It is so nice to know that the cousins William, Audrey, and Amelia get along so well.

I know that William liked picking blueberries with his Mom.

Audrey worked VERY hard picking the blueberries.  She even got on her tippy toes in order to pick the biggest blueberries that she could find.

William was very careful and thorough at picking only the sweetest blueberries (of course, they would never taste the blueberries before putting them into their buckets!).

Even little Amelia was very thorough with picking the blueberries. Amelia Picking BlueberriesAmelia Picking Blueberries But most of all, it was a lot of fun!

I hope it is a time that the cousins can remember sharing together as a family!
