Two weeks ago, we travelled to Pontious Farm, a U-Pick berry and herb farm in White Heath, IL.  We had such a great experience, I just had to blog about it.

The kids spent much of their time playing on the playground, and saying hello to the animals - namely cats and llamas.  The llamas were especially fun as M got to walk a llama on a leash, and we all spent time giving the llamas eskimo kisses!

But the best part was picking blueberries!  Both the kids are huge fruit fanatics, especially when it comes to blueberries.  C was hilarious, picking them right off the bush, and stuffing his cheeks full like a squirrel packing it in for winter:






Pick the berries one-at-a-time.  Eat the berries one-handful-at-a-time!

We joked that we should have weighed him before and after we went berry-picking, so that we could have accurately paid them for what we took home!  The boy had blue poop for two days!

M had fun too - and was at the perfect eye-level to pick the ripe, juicy berries on the bottom of the bush.  She bragged about walking the llama for a week!



  1. I would totally eat all the blueberries too :)

  2. Hahahaha... CJ totally eats like a squirrel too- that's really cute :D Glad you got to go! :D
