With autumn leaves falling and cooler weather approaching, Max and I decided to join Kristen and her gang at the apple orchard and picked 1/2 bushel of delicious, organic, apples.
It is hard to believe it has been a couple of years since we visited an apple orchard. Max was only about 5 months old the last time we picked apples. Look at how little he is!
And now our little boy is not-so-little anymore. This adventure was right up his ally. He absolutely loved picking apples. And eating them. In fact, he spent more time eating than picking. I caught him over and over again picking an apple, taking 2 bites, and then tossing it into his bag. After I realized he had done this with more than a dozen apples we had to have a little chat about "respecting the apple orchard" and "not wasting the precious, organic apples."
All in all, it was a fantastic day and a fantastic memory. I am looking forward to this becoming an annual tradition. And wouldn't be surprised if we find ourselves back at the apple farm later this year picking a different variety of delicious apples!
