summer fruit

My sister brought her girls all the way from Hawaii to experience their first summer in upstate New York. Although they live on a fruit farm, where mangoes, papayas, avocados, macadamia nuts, pineapples (the list could go on and on!) grow in abundance, all these girls really have wanted is to gather peaches from a tree...

and pick fresh blueberries...

Granting them their wishes has been easy and so pleasurable! Our summer has been so much richer to see our favorite summer activities through their enthusiastic eyes.
