Blueberry Picking

 Every year we pick bluberries at Mommy's Aunt Lois' blueberry farm.
Don't the blueberries look good?
 We found a vine that we swung on. 
 Thomas got blue teeth from all the blueberries he ate. 
James ate a lot of blueberries and Thomas and William made sure he always had plenty.
He's so cute!

Family Night

Every Friday night at the Moss farm is family night.  We used to do the traditional pizza and a movie, but lately we've been branching out.   A couple of weeks ago, we went to Jackson to eat at our favorite sushi restaurant and shop for a bike for Mommy.  Now everyone has a bike!

So last Friday, we went on a four-mile ride over our little country roads.  The weather was good, and the scenery was beautiful.  We would like to do it again, but with the heat up in triple digits, we might have to  postpone that plan.

After biking, we had a picnic supper, complete with watermelon and ice cream cones!  The boys loved the watermelon, in spite of -- or, perhaps, because of -- messy shirts and faces.

And whether it's fishing, board games, or watching a movie, the most important thing about it is family.

What do you like to do as a family?
