Raspberry Beret

We've been really busy the past few days helping our best friends Joey & Brian make the big move up here to CT from WV. Joey and I have been best friends since 7th grade (oh lordy, when did we get so old?! :) and this October he will stand up with me as my "Man of Honor" and Brian will stand up on Justin's side. I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are that they are finally up here!! We have so many cool things planned!

They drove 18 hours straight on Wednesday night to get here Thursday morning, and as soon as they pulled in we got right to work on unloading their TWENTY SIX foot Penske truck. We worked right through the blistering heat and into the night to finally finish around midnight, when the guys could *finally* get some sleep after being awake for over 40 hrs!

Things are really starting to come together with their new apartment so we decided to take yesterday off to celebrate with some raspberry picking and photo fun! Check it out!

Follow the yellow brick road...

Hey Jason!

Raspberry picking is TONS of fun! And this farm has strawberry, blueberry, jostaberry (whatever that is), peach, apple, and pumpkin picking! So it goes all summer and into the fall. My favorite is apple/pumpkin picking because I LOVE the fall. Lol, we actually *just* threw away some pumpkins from last September...they were getting fuzzy. :P
