The blackberry trail
Blackberries grow wild here, and they are everywhere - it is one of my favorite things about WA. Yesterday we took the kids to a bike trail that is lined with blackberry bushes - so they got to ride, we got to pick and everyone got to eat lots and lots of blackberries.
Wyatt found a baby snake that they all took turns holding. It kind of made me want to throw up. I almost stepped on one while I was picking and I almost couldn't pick anymore.

I think we ended up going at least 2 or 3 miles and afterward we all went back to my house for homeade ice cream pops. I found the recipe here.
Can't wait to make my favorite new cobbler recipe with the berries tonight.
