Peach Picking 2012

This is the fourth year that hubs and I have gone peach picking at a local orchard.  They don't have a peach picking season, but will open a weekend or two each year for peaches.  Every year I wait for that email and hope we don't have plans on peach picking weekend.

Last year Babygirl's grandparents came with us.  Turns out that Grandpa H was here for this peach picking weekend as well.

Like previous years we've picked quite the crop:

These are probably the best peaches I've had in *years*!  So juicy it's unreal.  I'm not even going to pretend that these will last for canning/jellymaking.  I've already planned my return visit to the farm to purchase a bushel for canning/baking/freezing.

Here's a picture of me and Babygirl.  Not the best, but I'm hooking up with Embrace the Camera over at Anderson Family Crew because in a nutshell I don't have many pictures of Babygirl and I together.  I'm the one who hides behind the camera photographer.  I figure if we keep taking them eventually I'll end up with some I like ;)


  1. Peach picking sounds like so much fun! I feel like a terrible mom because I have yet to take my girls fruit picking. Great shot of you and your baby. I also don't have many shots of me and my girls because I am the one taking all the pics lol. I have a feeling many moms are like that, huh?

    Your blog is so cute! I am happy to be returning the follow and can't wait to read more. The socks you are making in the post below this one are really cool. I wish I could knit, but my patience level for that is way low lol.

    Thanks for stopping by Theresa's Mixed Nuts :)

    1. That's for stopping by. My husband and I love to get our fruit/veggies from the local farms, so Babygirl has been quite often. Most times it's hard for kids because the trees are so high. We are lucky, the farm we go to has smaller trees. We had my nephew apple picking when he was 3 and he could reach the trees.

      I agree with you, many moms are the photographers so they aren't too many pictures. That's why I signed up for Embrace the Camera. Hopefully it will get me taking more photos of Babygirl and I.
