What is a great family activity to do on a summer weekend? How about picking some fruit! We looked up "fruit farms" in the area that let you go pick your own off the tree/bush/vine hoping to find somewhere to go get fresh strawberries. Apparently strawberries are more of a late summer pick in this part of Utah. Cherries were what was ripe for picking today....so....we went cherry picking in Payson!
Everyone had their own container to fill with cherries. The kids would NOT stoop until their containers were full to the top....especially once they tasted the cherries they were picking! When we finally called it quits our total came to 8 pounds of fresh, picked right off the tree, cherries! We had so much fun. I am sure we will be back later this summer for some raspberries and strawberries!
