Another tradition, is to go to the mountains and pick wild raspberries. We have done this evey August I can remember. Usually the guys help for a little bit and then they take the kids to the creek and the girls finish up. When I got to go my mom and I picked 16 cups of berries, but she has already been on several trips and we will soon have a day for canning and making jam and syrup. Fun fun! Here are some pictures of berry picking days!
