I just love the opportunity to discover fun, family-oriented day trips around Austin! This Memorial Day we took a trip out to Fredericksburg, a rural, historic German area known for their delicious peaches.This peach season was a little sparse due to a bad freeze earlier in April, but we were still able to find Pesnik Farms, a u-pick orchard with plenty of peaches to pick. M carried the basket and thoroughly enjoyed picking the peaches that were low enough for her to reach. Once she discovered that she could also EAT the peaches, her enthusiasm knew no bounds! (It was hard to keep her from taking a bite out of each and every peach in her basket)I'm very much looking forward to making a juicy cobbler out of these peaches.
After we had picked our peaches and chatted with the farmer for a little bit, we headed into town to an old German bakery for lunch. With our stomachs full of German pancakes, reuben sandwiches, and German pastries, we sauntered back out into the town and of course, couldn't resist stopping in at into a used bookstore where the books were all 30% off.
A very nice afternoon for our family!
