This weekend we spent a day in Virginia with my Aunt Elizabeth, Uncle Kent, and cousin Philip (godfather to Henry). We met them at Levering Orchard to pick...
Or in case you can't decipher the sign...
I have wanted to visit this orchard for several years. Elizabeth and Kent have been before, and for some reason it's always easier to do things when someone else suggests it. Especially if they like your kids and will help you keep control of them on a cherry farm.
We started out pretty low to the ground and close to the road.
Our only opinion of the ladder was that it was in the way.
The best cherries were way up high. Daddy ate just as many as he put in the bucket.
This was a great all-ages activity.
We were all pink and sticky in a matter of minutes.
On the way down the road for more fun. The shorts were slowing him down.
Don't tell anyone, but the yellow wax cherries are 50 times better than the dark reds. We had to fill up more buckets!
We probably ate as many as we tossed in the bucket...
We wrapped up the day at the farm. Kent grilled burgers.
The kids talked Philip into a tractor ride. Then he talked them into waashing his car!
We had a great time. And yummy cherry pies to show for it!
Thanks for the great weekend!
