After naptime, we packed a great picnic and were really excited to go to the evening blueberry picking session at Owl's Head Farm. There was a Dixieland band under a canopy and we set up our blanket and headed out to get the berries. Much to our surprise, Maya quickly got the idea of berry picking and was really into it:
Unfortunately, she's a quick little thing, and did some fancy fingerwork---she would pretend to drop her berry in the container, but instead would nimbly grab up 2 or 3 more berries from the bottom, and then smush them all and stare at the mess in her hand. (Dave may have a cell phone video of this---it will be uploaded sometime soon if it came out.) So she didn't get to help pick for too long.
We noticed the sky was looking, um, ominous . . . so Dave went to quickly pick berries as I gave Maya a snack. When he returned with berries, the sky was looking even darker. We could hear the lightening across the valley between 2 mountains, and we were really hoping it would blow by. We danced to the band and took some quick pics:
Dave, open your eyes
Maya, open your eyes
Ok, Maya, look a little less startled
