Another birthday, a new decade of life

My 30th birthday started off with a surprise message from the birthday fairy spelled out in peanut butter M&Ms, which are, in Caleb's words, "nummy!"
Then it was off to the blueberry patch. We wised up from last year and went early in the morning so as not to completely overheat. Caleb did a little bit of picking, but his skill set is more conducive to eating blueberries and whacking the trees with large branches.
I, too, ate my fair share of berries while David did most of the picking. Fortunately, the farm has these great bucket harnesses that position the bucket perfectly in case one's water was to break while picking berries:)
Here's farmer Dave and his trusty side kick
This sign at the berry sorting station said, "Any unattended children will be served an espresso and given a free puppy!" Fortunately, we made it out of there without either of those things.
After a relaxing afternoon, David and I went out on a nice date consisting of dinner and a movie. These flowers were actually from a friend, but David wasn't opposed to making it look like he gave them to me.
Now it's time to tackle a brand new decade!
