Blueberry picking at the Blueberry Country Farm in Ohaupo

Madeleine's chills out by the blueberry bushes. Notice the borrowed stroller she's in...it's not ours. Our stroller suffered a broken wheel on the plane trip to NZ and so was in the repair shop for about 2 weeks.



2007.01.05 12:10
Isn't she a cutie wearing her mommy's hat



2007.01.05 12:23
This farm is the largest blueberry producer in New Zealand and you can see why, the bushes go on forever.
