check!

We can check another activity off of our summer to do list! 

Yesterday we went to Larriland Farms to pick raspberries, blackberries and peaches!

Raspberries first!  These were the most difficult to pick, we only came home with about 1.5 lbs of these beauties.




Or was it because Lucy ate the other 1/2 lb we picked?


"Mama, more"

On the way to the blackberry patch we came across this beauty of a butterfly.


My littles were hungry by the time we got to the blackberries so I picked, they "picnic-ed"



Then on to the peach orchard.






If you've never gone to pick your own fruit, I would highly recommend it.  It's so peaceful and rewarding.  And the kid (at least my kids) sure do love it.  Looking forward to apple season in a few weeks!

I hope I can find somewhere near by to take Benjamin for apples this fall. The pictures of the kiddos are fabulous.

It looks like you guys found some beautiful and tasty fruit. We are all looking forward to apple picking in a few weeks too. Nothing will quite compare with that first trip we took a few years back though--that was just wonderful.

Both kids look so grown up Jenny!!! Looks like another magical day for the Zollars kids with their wonderful mama :)
