Peach Pickin' and Ferry Ridin'

Cody and Erin - fruity friends

Picking the just right ones

Ahhh....got my hands on one
We tried to teach Anna how to pick

We decided to try something we've never done before, but always wanted to this last Saturday. We took the drive down to Knott's Island to go Peach Picking. It's only about 45 minutes away and it was a very peaceful drive. Peach picking was great and very easy. The only thing was that we filled our bag so fast because the peaches are so big. Erin really enjoys picking any kind of fruit and I enjoy cobbler, so it works out! Anna had a fun time, but she desperately wanted to sink her teeth into a peach. The Jackson's came along for the excursion since Cody and Erin are fruit pickin' friends. After we were done we headed over to the ferry and took the ferry ride over to Currituck. Anna loved being on the boat, and of course Erin and Cody had fun having a picnic on the boat. It was a nice, relaxing morning and it felt like we had been on a mini-vacation!
