Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches...

I LOVE PEACHES!! There I said it, out loud! But I have to clarify, I love peaches, but I REALLY love FRESH peaches. Like, go pick them yourself fresh peaches. I may or may not have had a hormonal incident on Girl Trip 08 with peaches and a crazy driver (shut up Dianthe and Erin)
So when I saw that a peach farm near me was about to open for the season, I decided that the boys and I would be going up there on opening day. My parents decided to tag along with us, so we met them at Starbucks this morning at 8:30 and we were off! After getting a little turned around we made it. It was so much fun! I love finding new things for the boys and I to do during the summer.

The little peach house, where you pick up your baskets and then come back and pay, etc

Aiden is really into balls, and thought the peaches were balls, so he started bashing the together.

Aiden couldn't get them in his mouth fast enoughNotice the chipmunk cheeks?

Ethan is ready to go home now!
My friend Amie and I hit up the Pottery Barn outlet last year and I picked up this super cute and tiny Le Creusetcrock. She told me not to buy it, that I would never use it. Well, look at that, it makes the perfect peach cobbler for one. :)

What fun! Blackberry picking and a peach orchard?! Now that's not something you hear about everyday...

And did you get a new camera? Your blackberry and peach cobbler photos are awesome.

We actually got the new camera last summer, it's a Canon 40D, but we are finally learning how to really use it! :)
Thanks for the compliment!!

YUMMY! I can't wait for Hudson to get a little bigger so we can do things like this, it looks like you all had SO much fun and of course, the boys loved those peaches just like their mama!

You are always finding such fun things to do with your kids! Wish I still lived up there to copy you!!!

I LOVE fresh peaches too!! And I can't wait for the season to begin in the HIll Country.
