Summer Pickin'

cherry divinity

Jack has been asking to pick cherries for over a year now. Cherries were perfect for him because it was a combination of his love of tree climbing and fruit. Picking is the one activity that proves to be lovely over and over again for our family.

We headed towards the mountains in Virginia to find the orchard.

Josiah made cherry origami on the way. Aren't they cute?

The trees were almost done but we found enough to make it fun.

Lucy always picks the flowers too.

Favorite quotes of the day:

Lucy- "This is love..." (comment about the mountains)

Jack- "You know, I'm thinking we should probably grow our own cherry tree because it would be better for the earth. Then we wouldn't have to come ALL the way out here and use our gas. Gas is bad for the earth you don't spit out those seeds okay? we need them!"

What's happening over there? What are you guys doing this summer?

Just had to say that I love the origami. Those are super cute.

I am waiting eagerly for cherries to be ripe here. It should happen in the next couple weeks. Yum!

The cherry origami is awesome! Love Jack and Lucy's comments.

I'm planning some peach picking on the way back from the beach next month at this lovely orchard that sits right on the ocean. Between now and then? Lots of park playdates, water to splash in, and picking snap peas, green beans, and hopefully the first cherry tomatoes in our garden.
