14 Foot Ceilings

Weekend in the “Country”

This past weekend my husband and I started our staycation, and went on a weekend “getaway” to my parents house in rural CT.  My sister in law, her husband, and nephew came along for the ride.

One of the things we did that I haven’t done in AGES is go blueberry picking.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather, it was in the mid 70’s and sunny.  Not your typical August Saturday, but I’ll take it.  Unfortunately the next day was not so nice, but we still had a great time.

We picked a TON of blueberries, and made blueberry crisp (or crumble, however you want to call it), and blueberry pancakes.  Naturally I don’t actually eat blueberries, but I do like to pick them.

In addition to blueberries, we grilled a ton, sat outside when it was nice, and went out for local ice cream.  My nephew was a great photo subject, we (my husband and I were both photographers for the weekend) were able to get some really cute shots of him.

Being not yet two, he was naturally in heaven.  Trucks, tractors, cats, dogs, blueberry picking, running outside, ice cream, you name it.  Who knew watching my brother wash his truck is so exciting?

It was a great start to my staycation, and it’s been going so well thus far!  I’m totally not going to want to go back to work next week…
