Looking for a family fun activity and healthy eating, too. Right now blueberries are ripe and we have several u-pick farms in the area. It's a great family activity, you get to soak up some sun and fresh air, and it makes healthy fun for kids.
We went to this farm in Gravette, Fisher's Blueberries. You just follow the signs, pretty soon you're surrounded by nature in all her glory and row after row of blueberries. The Fisher's are the sweetest people, and Mrs. Fisher was my kindergarten teacher (pay attention that may be on the quiz later). They said you can get more information on a site called upick.org or something like that (or you could just ask me).
I always like to take the opportunity to let the kids see and experience where our food really comes from. You know, today's kids, if it's not in a box with a toy inside they don't want it. And I'm all for anything that makes healthy eating seem like a good idea.
Eat they did. They should have weighed the kids when we got there and again when we were done and charged us for the difference!
Didn't seem like such a great idea when diaper time came, though. Sorry to leave you with that thought.
