Pickin' peaches...Eckerts


Last Saturday we had amazing weather! It was hard to believe it was even July. No complaining here, that's FOR SURE! We took advantage of it and headed to Eckert's family farm to pick peaches with the Dumey's. We had a blast. They kids LOVED it so much! Shhh, call me crazy...but it kinda got me in the mood for apples, pumpkins, and even maybe a little Christmas music. The picture above was taken out of the car window as we pulled in. It looks like a postcard, that's how crazy awesome the weather was. As I was snapping this picture the kids were screaming with excitement and there was a cool breeze in the air. We had the music blasting and our windows down...sweet moment I want to remember forever! It was such great family time!

Once we arrived to grabbed our box and headed to the line for the tractor. It's a short ride out to the fields where we get to "pick our own." We got pretty creative with the box while we were waiting in line...even thought it was only about 5 mins.

We tried several times to get decent family photos but...


Everything about these pictures makes me happy. I love the Daddy's walking with the little's through the field. They were almost running they were so excited! The kids loved the tractor too. On the way back we had the chance to ride on the top/front of the trailer. The driver was a sweet man and kept talking to the us.

The kids really enjoyed Mark helping them because he was so tall. His long arms could reach in the trees as well. Wyatt loved climbing the trees too! (I think my mom would say he got it from his Mama) It didn't take long for them to realize there were people eating the peaches right off the trees.

Sis LOVED it...I actually think she was eating with her nose and mouth. ;)

We filled our boxes to our liking and then waited for our ride back. Wyatt was so proud of all the peaches he picked. Everyone had a little snack...

We had a great day with great friends. It was wonderful weather and we can't wait to make some fun peach stuff!

  1. Looks like a fun day. I have been craving peaches lately, but Ohio doesn't have any pick your own peaches, so I have been buyig them at the grocery store.
