June Berries by Emma

This is the post that inspired the children as blog author laziness in me. Emma wrote this in late June about 2 weeks after school let out.

Today mommy lost her thing that opens the car from a distance and she thought that maybe she lost it at Nokomis Park where we take tennis lessons every morning. We where going to ride our bikes there because Taran needed to ride his bike more. Well, just as we were going out the gate loaded with water and kids, (one trailer bike, a tandem and a boy who just learned how to ride) to find the locker thing mommy stooped down and picked it up. All of us who knew what had happened laughed, and instead we went on the bike trail.

On the way we happened to cross with a nice lady who showed us that we could pick sour cherries. She also told us about a juneberries. We asked her where they could be found and she said that she would be glad to show us if we where heading that way. Well we were. And so she did. We had drunken the water out of two of our water bottles and we put all of the cherries we had picked in one. So we took out the other bottle and we filled that one with juneberries which took a lot longer because they where smaller and where much better than the cherries that we picked (we were sure they were good because Willa kept on eating them!) and they where very small too.

Great post, Emma. I've seen people picking rustling in the bushes along the edges of the Midtown Greenway before. Now I know what they were doing!

I know! I always thought they were peeing. Now I know better!

Reuben, there are also raspberries available early July, but you have to be fast because they go fast.

Katie, we may or may not have been peeing as well!
