Today's Pick: Mulberries

Our new yard is loaded with raspberry bushes, and mulberry trees. The kids and I picked mulberries for hours this morning. Ahhhh.. summer.

The kids and I are are planning a trip out west very, very soon. Anyone have any travel tips for loooooong (17 hour) car rides with 4 kids (ages 10, 8, 5, and 2)?

We have raspberries, black berries, Apples, Cherries, Plums (if that is one of the trees that survived??). I loved picking cherries from our backyard tree as a kid (the rest of the family thinks I'm crazy???) :)
As for the car ride - lots of patience - (count colors of cars, find a license plate from each state, puzzlemania books, hidden pictures, word finds) I have a book that I will look for more ideas and e-mail you with them. Hope we can see you while your out this way. :)

I remember picking cherries at your house when we were kids! You had a big tree, really close to the house in the backyard.. we would "lay out" and pick cherries!

Thanks for all of the suggestions.. We will probably be there the first two weeks of July.. I will call you and we will set up a time to get together!
