Out into the woods
Barbie and I went out in search of huckleberries this morning. And now I understand why they cost $8.00 a pint - those things are tiny and hard to pick! But we persisted and came home with a good little haul. Mine are now in the freezer, awaiting to be made into huckleberry ice cream for the little miss's birthday next weekend.
It was a great morning - thankfully huckleberries grow in the woods and the shade, so we had a lovely time chatting and picking the fruit while Hazel rode around in the backpack. She loved looking around and we sang some songs together. I thought she wouldn't go to sleep while being carried and she was quite cheerful all morning. But around 11:00, she got quiet, I heard a thump, and then a little snore as she slumped forward, dead asleep. Too adorable, but I sadly did not get a snapshot.
