Cherry season officially began for our family and friends yesterday with the Cherry Pickers Trot, an annual event here on Greenbluff.
Families come from all around to participate in pit spitting contests, visit with friends, and to participate in the four mile run around half of the bluff. Back in the day, Emily won the race and brought home the outhouse trophy. As the years have passed and as we've all had children, it's fun for us to see them out running the course. A whole new generation of Thompsons.
And I love that the cousins are growing up together here, together so often that they're almost like siblings. They're so lucky to have each other.
After the race, friends and families gathered at our house, a short walk from the festivities.
It was the perfect kick-off for the season.
