Cherry Hill Orchards

Yesterday we went to a local orchard called Cherry Hill Orchards. It's the largest "pick your own" orchard in our county. Our Pastor and his wife had the idea of getting the church children together for a fun little outing. It was a beautiful day, not too hot! We picked cherries and ate most of them!, had lunch in the middle of the orchard under the cherry trees and then they treated all the kids to an ice cream cone at Pine View Dairy, a local ice cream shop where they make their own ice cream. We saw the cows and took a group picture! I think the group shot is so funny, just a bunch of kids livin' life! I love it!
Although it wasn't the easiest trying to keep the kids somewhat near, it was a delightful day just getting out of the house, doing something different and enjoying my children. Summertime is memory-time! We ended up with a very small amount of cherries, (so few, the guy just gave them to us for free~thanks Cherry guy)! The boys had a fun time and I did too.....and then we all took naps!! Here's Paisley in her cherry pants and shirt, (thanks Jess for letting her borrow them for our cherry pickin' day)! She's getting so big, so fast! She's only 2 months old.....Come on!! Please, slow down!!!!!!!
