I could have had a no spend day yesterday if I hadn't spent $20 on blueberries. A friend and I took the kiddos to a blueberry field and picked about 15 pounds of berries each. The little ones probably ate a pound each.
At one point little Abe picked a completely unripe berry, popped it in his mouth, after which you can only imagine the expression on his face. He proclaimed loudly, "these berries are gross!" Then he started picking berries off of the bush as fast as he possibly could and chucking them every which way with all of his might. It was hilarious but I quickly explained to him that we wouldn't want someone coming in our yard and chucking our strawberries all over the place and he most certainly needed to stop throwing someone else's blueberries that they'd worked very hard to grow because they wouldn't like it anymore than we would.
All in all it was a great time and we have thee most beautiful and enormous berries filling our fridge and freezer right now. I'm sensing all homemade blueberry pancakes, with blueberry syrup, with freshly whipped cream on top in the very near future. Oh, Yum!
