Cherries this time

today we went cherry picking! i love fresh cherries, my kids not so much! so i made sure we only got a small container full. it is more about the experience for them. i want them to grow up experiencing different options out there. i grew up picking strawberries a summer job. i hated it. now i only buy my strawberries! ha ha. but this is different. this is mommy time. this is family time. something we experience together and they look forward to it. it only takes 30 minutes of our time and we get to eat the benefits all day long. i have two bowls of fresh fruit on my counter all day long that they can snack out of...........and me too.
