Cousins Traditional Trip to Shuqualak Farms - Year #3

July 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Keck Twins love picking blueberries.  One of our traditions that they have begun to look forward to during the summer is going to Shuqualak Farms in Frierson, Louisiana to pick blueberries.  This year is their third year to pick these delicious blue spheres of ambrosia (you can read and see more of the previous adventures from the prior two years hear and  here).  With all of the rain during this year, it was not nearly as hot as the past two years so it was a lot more enjoyable picking the blueberries.

With an annual tradition, it is so much fun to see the development of the children.  William and Audrey, who are now 6 years old, really like to take their 4.5 year old cousin Amelia under their wing and help her out.  Unfortunately, their other cousins weren't available to partake in the fun.

 Many little fingers make light work!

William and Audrey adore Amelia, and I know that the feelings are mutual.  It is great to be able to capture this love with my camera.

Amelia did a wonderful job this year picking the blueberries.  It is wonderful to see this little girl grow up!

William did a great job carrying his bucket of blueberries and having everyone put their blueberries into his bucket.  Way to go, William!

After only 30 minutes, we had filled two small buckets with these delicious blueberries.
