We drove across the river into Kentucky to pick blueberries yesterday morning.  The kids were so excited the could hardly stay in the seats for the 40 minute drive. They recently found our old handheld camcorder amd have been taking it everywhere to capture stories and their deep thoughts. Or made up jokes.  Whatever the moment brings. It’s so cute! They are like little documentarians when they speak into the camera to narrate. We lasted surprisingly long in the heat and me with baby Ev on my back! And we got a load of blueberries for only $7.50! High Hill Orchard is such a great place to pick. It’s ran by a young family with 4 children and it’s all organic. And the experience is worth the drive, sweat and bug bites. It even converted my non-blueberry-eating child into a blueberry muncher! So we had to make a cobbler for our family reunion in Gatlinburg this weekend of course! I modified a recipe, so I’ll write it up amd post later this week. But i hafta tell you, when my husband took his first bite…he hugged me. And then he said “you have arrived, you have arrived.” I knew exactly what he meant. After years of living in the shadow of an ex girlfriend’s mom’s cobbler for 10 years, these words were using to my ears. But more on that later!
