The kids and I drove out to White Salmon yesterday and picked these beauties. It was a gorgeous day to drive through the Gorge and the kids all had a great time. The trees were small and loaded with cherries so it didn’t even take me that long to pick. Augie picked over 5 pounds all on his own, but Eddie and Olivia probably ate that much while we were up there. Chris and I pitted them last night and already have them in the freezer to keep them nice and fresh. I didn’t freeze Augie’s because he wants to make himself a pie. I have no idea what I’m going to do with all of them, but they are so sweet and tasty on their own that they may not get a chance to be made into something else!
Chris and Augie couldn’t stay out of it while it was filling up and had to see who could dunk their head in first. I think Augie won since he was all the way in whereas Daddy was a little chicken. With this heat, everyone will be getting in today.
