The Blueberries are Here!

The blueberries are just beginning to ripen in our area. Yesterday was in the mid-80's and the water was almost too warm...so we waited for Steve to get home from work and then drove to Pendills Creek to swim in Lake Superior. We like the beach there because it is sandy. We found lots of blueberries there and the water was much more refreshing! The only bad part? The horseflies....but we all turned them into a game, and each time one started to buzz around us we took off sprinting to see how long we could go before either the fly gave up or we had to dive into the water. I think nobody beat the flies and we had fun diving in to "save ourselves!"

Here is Alaina with her blueberry stash in front of a bunch of blueberry bushes.
When we got home we cheated a bit and made a yummy dessert with some of the blueberries Steve picked from Sav-A-Lot. Every summer we anticipate these boxes coming in. They are 5 pounds of giant blueberries for $12, and you can usually only purchase them for a week. We buy 3 or 4 boxes and keep them in the freezer for instant indulgence. 
YUM!!! The taste of summer!
