Ryan got up really early to take Sox on a trail ride, and we met up with him later in Moorpark to crash Mandy and Charlie's ward breakfast.
Then we went out to a farm to pick blueberries.
The tractor ride out to the fields:
Charlie picked one blueberry and put it in the box and said he was all done. After that he would pick berries, squish them, and drop them. I don't think we were there long enough for him to do too much damage.
Kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk:
I need to remember to only let the kids take pictures of me if they are up on a ladder or something.
After lunch we headed home, took some naps, then went to a friend's house for a barbecue. We brought a patriotic jello poke cake with blueberries on top, of course. Later we played a game and were flabbergasted when some of the players had never heard of Mary Lou Retton.
When it got dark we drove to another friend's property up on a hillside to watch the different fireworks around town. Ryan fell asleep while we were waiting for them to start, and Alex kept asking questions about how fireworks work which I couldn't answer. He and Benjamin wanted to know if other things could be added to the fireworks to explode in the air.
"Like what?" I asked.
"Cheese." they replied.
