Apple Picking

Since we started homeschooling, we haven't been to our playgroup much.  So when we heard they were taking a field trip to our favorite barn to pick apples, we were in!  My 2nd grader is learning about plants right now, so it was a perfect field trip.

 We all boarded the tractor trailer and headed down the dirt road toward the apple orchard.

The boys grabbed their bags and were off to find the biggest, reddest apples they could find!

They picked...

and picked...

and ate...

and picked and ate!

We filled 2 paper bags full, but stopped there.  We could only carry so much back!

We road the tractor back, then hung out around the barn for a bit.  

The boys climbed on the hay bail wagon.

Whats a trip to the barn without feeding the animals?
The boys shared their apples with the donkeys!

Checking out Thanksgiving dinner...just kiddin'!

Then my oldest sat some of the little kids down...

and taught them all how to properly climb a tree.  

It totally caught on!

Good job kids!

We had a great time!

Can't wait to go back for pumpkins in a few weeks!
