One of my friends recently moved here from the east coast and has been searching to find a place to pick apples. I recently finally found a place nearby and suggested we check it out.
There were lots of wonderful apple trees. There were plenty of apples in the trees, but it was perfect for our little kids because there were just as many good apples on the ground as there were in the trees.
It was a lovely day to go on a little outing. It was perfect weather, nice and sunny yet not too hot. We got lucky especially since the weather has been so temperamental around here lately. The weather can't seem to make up it's mind which season it's in.
All the apples on the ground were perfect for the little ones. They had fun picking all the apples up off the ground. Though, even with all the great apples on the ground, somehow my little girl always found the ones that were the most rotten.
I don't know if she really knew what these apple things were that we were picking. But they sure looked like fun. The other half of the fun was just being able to run around in the fresh air.
The only problem was that the kids kept taking all the apples out of our buckets and throwing them on the ground. Or they would put all the rotten apples in the bucket and we would have to pick them out. So finally we got them their own buckets that they could fill and dump out to their hearts content.
It was a lot of fun, and a great activity. It was nice to bask in the sun, pick apples and share good times with friends.
But now, I have nine lbs of apples...Whatever shall I do with them?
