Buckleberries are huckleberries and blackberries together. Hank often says he wants to go on a hike to look for buckleberries and last night Bart got home early enough for us to take a family walk. We are very blessed to live close to the water. We can take a short walk from our front door down a trail to the beach. It was a perfect evening too. I would guess it was in the low 70’s and the humidity was low. Gideon rode in the Sherpani backpack and Hank walked alongside us. On our walk we saw a slug, a major highlight for Hank. We also saw huckleberries and blackberries galore, a major highlight for all of us. Maybe the very best part was when Hank saw a garter snake right next to us. He asked me to pick it up so he could hold it. Too bad I was hesitant because it slithered away.
And the loot:
Dear Jesus, thank you for family time. It was SO nice to go on an outing together. I am thankful that Bart was able to get home earlier. Thank you for the abundant berries and beautiful weather. Thank you that the boys had so much fun too. Amen.
