Raspberry picking

On Saturday before we visited Taylor and Luke's house, we decided to drive down to Mapleton to a raspberry patch to pick some raspberries.  We had been there a few times before so we were excited to go again.  Sadie was a little bit nervous though because the last time we went she was stung by a wasp.  We made it out this time without any injuries.  :)  Emery was really nervous at first because there are tons of bees and wasps flying around (they have beehives on their property too) pollinating the plants.  After about five minutes, she got brave and walked through all kinds of raspberry bushes and ate tons of raspberries.  The next few days she had scratches all over her arms from her bravery. 

On the way there we stopped at the bank and got suckers.  Emery fell asleep with her sucker in her mouth.  It was a 50 minute drive so by the time we got there the sucker was completely gone.  :)  

As you can see here, Emery is still a little bit unsure about all the bees.  But Zac was very reassuring and reminded her over and over that if we leave them alone, they will leave us alone.  

Zac and Sadie both filled up their buckets completely. (they were little)

Riley enjoyed snoozing in the front pack.  What a cutie!

We had a great time!  I wish there was a upick farm closer to our place!  We will definitely have to go back next year!
