I had a plan for Friday morning. A plan that included a quick road trip to the south to pick cherries. I’d called the orchard to confirm they still had them, and talked it up with the boys. It was one of my favorite items on our summer list last year, so I added it again to this year’s list. Things would be a bit different this year; my husband was out of town and my oldest was at the lake for a sleep over, leaving just me and my two younger boys. No matter, we would make our own fun.
Highlights of our morning…
Picking peaches after learning there were no cherries left to pick
Getting the last bag of pre-picked cherries
Spiced sugar donuts from the orchard bakery (so very amazing)
Slurping, juicy bites of freshly picked peaches
Laughing at puckered faces after eating too many cherries
Cranking up the radio, singing to the top of our lungs
Laughing at what bad singers we are
I didn’t capture it all on camera. It felt more right to be in the moment than document it. Some memories are just better collected that way.
Time to check one more thing off the summer bucket list…onto our next adventure.
