What a wonderful day we had Saturday! We were invited to go the mountains with some family friends to go cherry picking. We went with two other families and had a great time. When we got to the mountains we first all shared a picnic together. We had an abundance of goodies-sandwiches, chips, macaroni salad(that yours truely made), veggies with dip, homegrown pickles, homemade brownies and the best sweet tea.
Then it was off to pickin'. I'd never been cherry picking before so if your not aware, the trees are really large and you have to climb these really tall, scary ladders to get the best cherries. Mostly, I stayed on the ground for moral support and to take pictures. The boys climbed and picked and ate their weight in cherries.

Our family picked about 10 gallons. Look at these cherries!!! They are so sweet and taste heavenly!
