Apricot Time

Summer means time to go to the farm and pick yummy fruit. The Hemming family loves to pick fruit. Every year we go out to Brentwood and pick apricots or peaches. It was so hot out there that day the kids almost melted. (I think it was barley 90 outside, but was so hot in the sun. I don't know what we are gonna do next week when we move back to Arizona)

We picked 3 huge buckets full of apricots. There is just a taste from farm fruit that you can't get in the market. Delicious!
We made 3 batches of jam. I think it is the best jam ever!

Logan was going crazy for the fruit. He is already a crazy baby that will shark bite you for food. Watch out.

We put him in the wagon and he was so funny trying to grab all the apricots. He shoved them in his mouth and would not let go. These pictures make me crack up.
What a little sweetie!
After the apricot fun, we stopped at a different farm for some blackberries. We were hot so we picked quick.
When we were done the kids could not stop complaining. They were waiting by Papa's truck looking so sweaty. Good thing we had a pool waiting at home for us.


  1. I LOVE the picture of Logan with the fruit hanging out of his mouth! Hilarious. Good for you trying the bottle, with all the moving coming up you will be glad someone else can feed him sometimes. And it's better than PAIN.

  2. Looks like tons of fun! My girls LOVE apricot jam! I have a good chicken recipe that uses it too.

  3. When are you going to send my pics to costco? Love the new blog paper! Do you miss us yet?
