Day 15 - Picking Cherries

So the big event of today was cherry picking.
First, we cooked up a great brunch of chicken enchiladas. I know a weird choice for brunch, but we wanted to have it when all of the family could be there.
Then, we went to a friend's house a few blocks over and picked 2 and 1/2 gallons of cherries. (For any non-Americans out there, that's about 10 liters!) Sarah and I were just amazed at all of this fresh fruit for free. In Korea, cherries cost the same as a plate of gold.
Sarah and her dad spent most of the afternoon pitting the cherries, and then I made a nice cherry cobbler. Luke picked up some icecream and baloons, and we surprised Theresa (Sarah's sister) at work (the Super 8 Motel) with a little party in her honor. Unfortunately, lots of customers came in suddenly in the last 30 minutes of her shift, so she couldn't eat with us. Bummer, but I think she still appreciated the gesture.

(Oh yeah, we also picked blackberries which had grown up over an old tractor when we were out at the farm. We are loving this fresh fruit!)
