5 minutes of july

i have been waiting months- no exaggeration here- for peach season to arrive.  one of my very favorite things to do in the summer time with my kids is head to our local orchard every few weeks to load up on whatever fruit happens to be in season, but peaches?  peaches are the pinnacle of my summer.  

now that i'm 9 months pregnant, i was worried that i wouldn't make it out this year because the start of the season lines up so closely with my due date.  plus, it's been wildly hot and i don't have the stamina to walk around outside for 45 minutes picking fruit while keeping track of my super enthusiastic kiddos.  

this morning though, we woke up to a forecast of cloudy skies and a high of 77 (!!!), so on a whim i checked the orchard's website to see if maybe the peaches had ripened up over the weekend- and they had!  i rushed the boys through breakfast and then loaded them up with our peach picking buckets and off we went for a morning of peachy, breezy, summer time bliss.

they filled 2 buckets (which came out to around 13 pounds) in under 10 minutes.  i see some peach pie in our future :)

happy summer everyone- keep circling around to see what eve rashid captured in her 5 minutes this month!

5 minutes of june

i am so, so, so happy that summer is here.  we've been spending pretty much all of our time outside, and it has been nothing short of amazing.

one of my very most favorite things to do with the kids when we're done climbing all over the jungle gym at our local playground is to go down and play in the creek that runs through the park.  it's shallow enough for them to be able to wade comfortably, but deep enough to have lots of little fish swimming around and plenty for them to explore.  here's 5 minutes of one of our creek visits this month :)
