One of our favourite activities to do as a family during the summertime is to go down to our favourite orchard/fruit stand and load up on ice cream and fresh fruit. For me, it is so calming to walk through this large orchard and to see all of the different fruits growing. Scarlett loves running wild through the trees and I will forever have this memory of her running full tilt between two rows of peach trees; giggling and stopping occasionally to examine a peach that has caught her eye.

This time, when we arrived, there was a sign that read 'U-Pick Golden Plums' and naturally I had to partake! It was a dark evening as our town has a lot of smoke in the air due to several wildfires nearby. The smoke over the evening sun created a reddish glow which caused the orchard to look very eery. We went to the very far end of the orchard and found the most gorgeous trees full of tiny golden plums that tasted just heavenly. Normally I have to tell Scarlett not to pick the fruit but this time I gave her her little market basket and let her go crazy. Every little plum she picked she would choose with extreme concentration and then proudly put it in her basket. She did an amazing job and even though we ended up with a lot of not quite ripe plums, it was worth it. These are the moments that I want to remember always. Chris took so many beautiful photos of us and I just had to share!
