A cherry picking sort of day

This morning the boys, my friend Kelsee, and I went cherry picking.  Even though we picked about four pounds of cherries, we've only got enough for a small batch of jam. I think we'll go get some more tomorrow and make a pie, too....

The boys LOVED picking the cherries, and Micah was shoving them into his mouth unwashed and unpitted... oops.

Ahhhh, love it! Cherries just scream summer for me, like strawberries too. Yummy! Can't wait to take my little man to the pick-your-own. X

have never been cherry picking but every summer I take the kids raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry picking. Raspberry is always the biggest hit...truly impressive how many berries Timmy can shove in his mouth in under an hour:) Have you ever tried making a cherry ice cream?

@Aimee, There are unguarded cherry trees all over the streets in Provo. Lots of them are on city ground, or in church grounds. This is in front of a men's singles apt down the street, and since THEY're not picking them and making jam... I don't feel bad stealing them! Ha!

@Tara
Cherry Ice Cream? Holy deliciousness. I have not made that (although I do like warm jam ON my ice cream), but I will certainly have to try!
