Peach Picking

It's that time of year again, so we loaded the kids up and called Grandpa John to see if wanted to join us. Who could say no to fresh peaches?!

The kids are working hard!
We had to walk through the plums to get to the peaches. They said that if we were selective, we'd be able to find a few good plums. It took a while, but I found a delicious one. We each got a bite, but by the time it got to Matthew, he wasn't sharing. He got the rest of the plum all to himself!

The variety of peaches were 'flame peaches' and they were absolutely delicious!

The inside was just as red as the outside, which made for a funny looking peach cobbler later, but it was still yummy!

I think Matthew ate about 5 peaches in addition to that plum he hoarded.

I love how he was holding onto the peaches with 2 hands!

Wasting no time!

Clara doesn't get into the eating part as much, but she loves to pick.

The kids got a ride back as well. We had to pick up a second wagon just for them, because our first one was full of peaches. I forgot to take a picture of our loot, but we had enough to share with all of our neighbors when we got back!
