While the oldest kids were off in school, Russ & I decided to take a drive with Emma and Will and look for something to do, as the weather had FINALLY gotten nicer.
We drove towards Reading and happened upon a Pick Your Own Farm, Ontelaunee Orchards.
It was a little off the beaten path to get back to the actual farm, but the views were beautiful.
(have I told you how much I love corn fields???)
Once we arrived, we realized the logistics of raspberry, peach & apple picking with Will wasn’t quite what we were prepared for…
and he quickly took off running through the raspberries with Emma chasing.
Thankfully, she managed to grab a hold of him and bring him back
and the next 45 minutes or so, Russ and I took turns chasing Will and helping Emma (aka Professional Fruit Picker 🙂 )
And, Emma, well, she picked SO many apples and peaches…
that we came home and made a batch of peach preserves (recipe to be posted soon) and apple cider.
