Blackberry Picking: from the viewpoint of a four year old

I never realized what it must be like to be Jack during our berry picking expeditions.  Being pulled along in the wagon without much say in where we go, or why; he is just along for the ride.

I finally got to see things from his perspective when I was looking at my phone on Monday afternoon.  Apparently I didn’t lock my cell phone which was still in the wagon, and Jack felt the need to take advantage of such a rare opportunity!

  1. Yum! Roll on Summer (it’s just about Spring here in Australia). Hi, btw, I’ve visited before, but never left a comment 🙂

  2. These days, if my phone camera is used by a kid they are taking “selfies”. I think I need to leave my camera for my youngest once in a while. These pictures are great!

  3. Love this. Good to remember that our kids are little people. 🙂 What fun to see the day from his eyes.

  4. This was an awesomesauce post. That is all.

  5. I gave my son the iphone while we were at the grocery store and out of all the games he could play, he decided that he would take pictures. I had lots of the floor and different shelves in the store. It was sort of funny. I saved a few and I should post them! It is funny when you see things from their perspective.

  6. Beautiful! He has a great eye, and may be a blogger someday as he came up with this awesome idea!

  7. What a lovely post! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  8. I literally got goosebumps looking at these pictures! Reminds me of when I was little girl, going with my mommy to run errands or helping her around the yard.

  9. Awww, love those! Great eye, that Jack has 🙂

  10. “Being pulled along in the wagon without much say in where we go, or why; he is just along for the ride.”

    That pretty much sums up a kids life. It’s nice to sometimes be reminded that they have a totally different view of the world, and that sometimes their view is the better one.

    I also love the last picture. My kiddo is fond of taking self portraits and I always love them.

  11. Oh Jessi…how you have made me cry!!! I grew up in Spokane, but every year…multiple times a year we vacationed in the Puget sound going camping and hiking…and that water shot…I just lost it!!! I would LOVE to be back in the north again…but my husband loves the south! I am envious of you right now…

  12. Have to agree, that last photo is great. He’s got some of that photogenic gene in him as well. You should leave your phone unlocked more often.

  13. This is a beautiful place, I come from the land of burnt up grass 70% of the year and in perpetual drought. Texas can be amazing but every once in awhile I would like to have cool breezes and pine trees like yall have. Not walking out of the house into a microwave and you can feel your makeup melting hot. I may be able to grow avocados in my backyard but sometimes the north just looks refreshing. More pictures please 🙂

  14. Holy cow! Is that WATER?! That close to your house?! This land-locked girl is JEALOUS!!!! 😉 Pretty sure the last photo is my fave! 🙂

  15. Im jealous of where you live. It reminds me of Maine
