Cyrus and I went Cherry Picking with my friend Kathy and her twins Miles & Maya. We left Salem at 9am so that Cyrus would take his morning nap. We arrived at Spring Valley Orchids at about 11. Cyrus slept almost the entire way.
The views were amazing! The weather was perfect and the company was great.
Cyrus was very good at picking cherries. I was surprised that he even understood to put them in our bag. Yep my boy is a genius, lol.
He also liked to show off the cherries he picked. He would pick and then proudly show the cherry to me, and then plop it into our bag.
He even showed Mama how to pick the cherries.
and Mama showed him how to eat the cherries. As you can see in this picture, he was wanting his own cherry to eat. I just love the look on his face.
Picking cherries and picking your nose go hand in hand, at least in Cyrus's world...just kidding my child does not know how to pick his nose, this is just a coincidence. After cherry picking we went drove down to Batesville and had lunch. Kathy and I found the cutest place to eat. We had a ton of the fun, but the children were really ready to nap. So we ate lunch quickly and were back on the road by 3. Cyrus slept almost the entire drive home. The Hurley family has been enjoying cherries for the past few days. I am wishing I had picked more and talked and played less.
