Friends from afar (Manila, Philippines) came to visit Vancouver once again :)
Their cousin, Shar, held a plum picking event for the kids and the adults alike. A picnic style setting was done. Ladders were set up and the kids soon had their turn picking plums with their bare hands...

Pretty hostess goes around with trays of goodies, tempting us with different dishes to satisfy our tummies while we do some outdoor labor ;)
