Last Saturday, I somehow got everyone into the car at 7:30am to the city of Brentwood, about an hour away, to do some fruit picking!
We had originally just planned on cherry picking but then ended up picking seven pounds of white peaches, too! You guys, we had a BLAST. Honestly, it was the best Saturday with my crew that I can even remember. My kids are seriously into both picking fruit and eating fruit (hah) and hearing them both squeal with delight in the cherry orchard made the hour car trip more than worth it. I was a little worried that we would need a ladder and that the kids wouldn’t be able to actively participate in the picking process (or that they would swallow a bunch of cherry pits) but that wasn’t the case. There was so much low hanging fruit that the boys totally filled their buckets…Adam and I didn’t even pick at all!
