Apples & Pumpkins - Meet & Greet Monday

This weekend we went to the apple orchard and picked our own apples. I figured that was the last weekend to do this, since you have to pick apples in September, right? Next weekend will be October, and thus belongs to pumpkins.

Nonetheless, the orchard already had their pumpkins out. The kids were ready to pick a pumpkin and take it home, but I convinced them to wait a week (for pumpkin month). Abby said she was going to make a "lantern" when she finally got a pumpkin.

They were heavy little pumpkins, too...

We finally got the kids to leave the pumpkins. Thank goodness, because every single time I type "pumpkin" I spell it wrong.

There were two friendly donkeys (burros?) at the farm. They liked to whisper jokes in each other's ear. I think Avery overheard the joke this time:

This next section will be entitled, "The Apples of My Eye." Why?


Wait! Before we head to the apples, we need to take a potty break - as indicated by this "pee-pee dance":

Finally, we picked those apples!

We picked the heck out of them!

And gathered a peck of them! Don't you just love my apple orchard poetry?

And, just look at our loot!

Oh! I want to go to an orchard! We've been talking about it for weeks now, but I thought we'd have to wait a bit longer!

These were great. Thanks for sharing!

Burros? Aren't those desserts?
