One activity our family enjoys doing together is fruit picking out in Brentwood at the local farms. Cherries, peaches, strawberries, apples, you name it, we will pick it! Last month, it was the beginning of cherry season and so we loaded the kids in the car and found the perfect cherry farm off the main road that hadn’t been touched by the hoards of people who all had the same idea in mind that day.
If you are looking for a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy that is rather inexpensive and quite delicious, then look no further. It truly is a fun family day when we go fruit picking and all four of our kids love partaking in it.
We picked about ten pounds of cherries and called it a day. Once we got home, my husband started the BBQ while I made an amazing cherry pie. Which by the way, is actually very very easy to make! It was the perfect end to the perfect day.
This weekend, we plan to find a peach farm. Peaches are my absolute favorite fruit and they are so much better when picked straight from the tree. This time since it has been so hot here, we plan to leave extra early to beat the crowd and the heat. When I watch the kids and my husband together doing activities like this, it really melts my heart. So much of the week is wrapped up in work, and school etc that when we get to spend time together doing something we all love to do, it’s really special. These memories are ones I hope they remember fondly.
