The next great thing about July is blueberries! My family loves blueberries and picking them. It's much easier than strawberries, too. This year we were joined by our friends Steph and Jacob. The kids ate a TON of blueberries, but didn't seem too ill afterward. We actually picked 10.6 lbs of yumminess between the three of us, and Steph and Jacob picked around 6lbs. Then we enjoyed "Blueberry Grunt" for dessert that night. It was a new recipe and was pretty good, but not to die for. So here's to July and all the fun times we've had so far.

One of our favorite times of the year is July. First, there's the Fourth, which Gabby said this year is her favorite holiday. It was always mine, too. Funny that so many kids love this holiday and it's not even one where presents are involved. We spent the morning at the parade, then at my parents, and then went to the fireworks on the lake. They were great! Usually they light one and then you wait a minute til the next. They finally figured it out and it was a great show!
