{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Peach Picking Edition

Nothing signals late summer more than ripening peaches on the tree. A few years ago a friend recommended a family run orchard where we could pick absolutely delicious peaches. We've been hooked ever since.


 Rows and rows of peach trees and having so many children means lots of helpers. The grandfather who runs the orchard even gave each of them their own baskets to help.

They are delicious and are one of my favorite August foods. The bright reds and yellows of late summer days.


Being together as a family makes me happy.

All those peaches can sometimes be a lot of work. Thankfully, we also have lots of helpers for that.

With so many peaches we, of course, had to have some cobbler.

While these last two pictures definitely fall under the pretty and happy categories, I put them in the real category because of all the calories they are adding to my diet.
